Though many of you are well aware of the Landmark 1978 Bakke v. Regents Supreme Court decision, most people have no idea how that story ended. I was very surprised to see that there was not a single YouTube video that dealt with the student denied admission (Allan Bakke), a student (Patrick Chavis) admitted to the diversity program (i.e. in Bakke's place) and the tragic career of that affirmative action doc. I believed that this was a story that needed to be told so I put this video together to make the story accessible to a new generation.
To truly bring about the change in government we desire, we need not only to have our own media outlets, but we need to teach history in all its depth and richness (BTW hats off to Rich Kujat for what he's doing with the Wallbuilders in that respect). The dumbing-down of education has increasingly left our society open to silver-tongued manipulators who will promise the moon in return for a few drops of our precious freedom (see this YouTube for a 50 year old cartoon that makes Nostradamus look like an amateur http://tinyurl.com/kkz4r8 ).
For those of you who are not aware of the story (or its ending) here is a summary (without the plot spoiler):
In 1973 Allan Bakke was denied admission to UC Davis Medical School even though the school admitted 16 "diversity" applicants with much lower scores that year.
In a landmark 1978 Supreme Court case "Bakke v. Regents of the University of California" it was ordered that Bakke be admitted but the court still allowed race to be taken into consideration as a "plus factor".
Affirmative action remains contentious to this day.
