*reverse discrimination?

*reverse discrimination?

Yes it is reverse discrimination...

My son is in college and is busting his butt to prepare himself to apply to Dental school in a few years. It is disgusting to think that, because of his race, he might not get in because a lesser-qualified minority takes his spot! Furthermore, this program is racist for another reason...it assumes that only minority dentists can serve the under-served population.
