2011 - Brilliant Disguise - An Empirical Analysis of a Social Experiment Banning Affirmative Action

Affirmative action is no longer required, proponents assert, because society no longer judges people by their skin color.

This presentation confronts the colorblind ideal myths of stigma and resentment, which appear at much greater rates in anti-affirmative action states.
