Affirmative Action — Keeping Blacks from College?

Donovan McNabb said he hopes Limbaugh’s comments that the news media hopes black quarterbacks will succeed don’t discourage young blacks from wanting to play quarterback.

Does McNabb also fear affirmative action will discourage young blacks from attending college?
