from "Con Quota" by Talia Whyte, Class of 1998 in the October 1995 Argo:

"I know that certain people will be disappointed by what I am about to say, but I am a Black student who is against Affirmative Action . . . If you look into world history, almost every ethnic and religious group has been through some kind of human suffrage. So, does that mean everyone deserves to get a free ride from Affirmative Action? . . . Don't get me wrong; discrimination is alive and well in America, but Affirmative Action is not going to break down the walls of prejudice. Maybe 1995 will be the year when everyone will realize that equal opportunity by merit, not by cultural difference, is the best way to go in the future."
