Abstract:     
At the onset of the "minority contractors" cases, this article stresses that race-based laws have yielded undesirable by-products that actually made the laws less advantageous than the unequal situations the laws tried to prevent. This essay urges that if race is used as a standard for assigning advantage, the same inequities will repeat once race is seen as an acceptable legislative standard.
