Wake up.  It's near the end of the 1990s now, and a good deal of
affirmative action has disappeared already in America.  The remaining parts
are on probation, so to speak.  The Right has learned to used "civil
rights" laws to destroy whatever anti-racist programs we have ever gained.
I suppose you don't pay attention to the US domestic politics.
