Based on what you have read from Hall, the New York Times, and Carbado & Harris, race plays an important factor (but not the only factor: intersectionality) in how we conceive of the university admission system. Yet at the same time, while recognizing that “we” are not equally represented in education, politics, and the economic system, Californians still voted against leverages that allow for greater access. This is not uncommon, as voters often vote against their own best interests.
In this essay, compare and contrast how race, as a ‘language,’ serves as a tool by both structures and institutions into higher education. Please use only the readings provided. You will not need a bibliography.
