Description

For decades, many universities have used race as a factor when deciding which students to admit. In the past, the Supreme Court has backed that practice, called affirmative action, in the interest of creating a diverse student body.

Guest: Adam Liptak, a correspondent covering the Supreme Court for The New York Times.
