Abstract:
Affirmative action in the United States is the political principle behind legislation meant to improve the educational and employment opportunities of historically‐disadvantaged groups, especially African Americans. However, though well‐intended, it has been subject to criticism and judgment, even on the level of the Supreme Court.
