2. Yes, and UT had a point system in which race was only one of many

many factors. It was the most mild of efforts at Affirmative Action, since they have been legally challenged so many times. I'll also note that none of the students who have sued UT (where the Law School or undergraduate school) alleging they didn't get in because of their race have been able to get in even when race is not considered at all.

UT has no shortage of white students. The notion that these kids who don't even graduate in the top 10% of a high school class in Texas conclude that their whiteness is the reason they weren't admitted is just absurd.
