Hosted by

One of America's most controversial issues is back in the news. Amid racial protest on campuses across the nation, the US Supreme Court will take up race-based affirmative action in admission to public colleges and universities. The hearing's tomorrow. Are there other ways of creating the campus diversity regarded as essential to higher education?  

Later on the program, if the US were to ban immigrants for racial and religious reasons, it would not be the first time. We hear about the unintended consequences of such policies in American history.
