This chapter provides an overview of the origins of affirmative action, the arguments for and against affirmative action programs, and the evolution of the rationales for affirmative action programs (including a discussion of how well or poorly multiracial Americans fit with each rationale). In particular, it focuses on affirmative action programs in higher education. It concludes with some policy suggestions for how colleges and universities can most equitably include multiracial Americans in affirmative action programs.
