Discussed is the issue of college admittance that includes race as one of the factors in the admissions process. In this light, various relevant cases are used to back up the arguments presented, such as the Univ. of California v. Bakke.

Keywords: Equal Protection Clause, 14th Amendment, college admissions, university admissions, racial diversity, Uversity of California v. Bakke, stare decisis,
