Protesting Affirmative Action, One College Application at a Time

This interesting website takes a grassroots approach to the cause of promoting a colorblind society by asking students heading to college or grad school to formally pledge to refuse to play the affirmative action game by entering their race incorrectly on college entrace forms.

Here’s how the site’s sponsors describe their goal:

“What would happen to affirmative-action programs if a significant portion of college applicants intentionally misreported their races? Even if most applications were marked correctly…a little civil disobedience could introduce just enough margin of error to really bring out the pure intellectual chaos and moral repugnance of affirmative action.”

The site also has a nice collection of articles on affirmative action by worthy writers and is worth a visit.
