|Torment a liberal with the horrible tale of affirmative action gone oh-so poetically wrong: Regents of the University of California v. Bakke(1978). Allan Bakke was a white med school applicant, initially denied a place despite his superior grades because of the University's PC affirmative action program that gave preference to ethnic minorities with much lower grades. One of the five black students admitted to themed school instead of Bakke was Patrick Chavis, whose subsequent "successful" career was compared favorably by affirmative action champions with Bakke's relatively undistinguished one as proof that social justice had been secured. What they neglected to report was Chavis's subsequent suspension by California's medical board for his "inability to perform some of the most basic duties required of a physician." He botched one patient's liposuction, hiding her in his home for forty hours, while she lost 70 percent of her blood; caused another patient severe bleeding, again stashing her in his home; and caused another to suffer a heart attack before bleeding to death.|
