Booknotes, Sunday, September 29, 1991
Stephen L. Carter discusses Reflections Of An Affirmative Action Baby.

Mr. Carter attended Stanford University and Yale University Law School. He discussed the problem of whites opposed to affirmative action being labelled racist, and blacks opposed to affirmative action being seen as "traitors." He said he wrote the book to promote the benefits of affirmative action and to get rid of the "rhetoric and name-calling." He said that it is important to open higher educational opportunities to non-whites, but after college or entry-level positions, the need for affirmative action has ended. He cited his own college education as a model of affirmative action. (timspalding)… (more)
