Har­vard faces race charges

The Citizen (KZN) - - WORLD - Bos­ton

– A law­suit chal­leng­ing the use of race as a fac­tor in US col­lege ad­mis­sions will go to trial in Bos­ton on Mon­day, when Har­vard Uni­ver­sity will face ac­cu­sa­tions that it dis­crim­i­nates against Asian-Amer­i­can ap­pli­cants.

The law­suit, backed by the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion, could even­tu­ally reach the Supreme Court, giv­ing the newly ce­mented five-mem­ber con­ser­va­tive ma­jor­ity a chance to bar the use of af­fir­ma­tive ac­tion to help mi­nor­ity ap­pli­cants get into col­lege.
