While at Harvard, he served as the president of the Harvard Law Review. Obama is an Affirmative Action baby!
I will prove it to you. Being magna cum laude may be a minimal qualification for Harvard Law Review. Not all HLS students, who are magna cum laude, are admitted to Harvard Law Review, because of the limited number of spots available.
For one of any race and ethnicity, being magna cum laude at Harvard Law School may be a minimal qualification for membership into Harvard Law Review.
This is a most important point that you, Cobra, seemed unable to grasp. Another point is that the Latin honors of cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude, at least at Harvard College, were given to over the vast majority of the graduating classes.
I will ask some of the graduates of Harvard Law School to find the answer. As far as I know, Obama, did not receive Latin honors upon graduation from Columbia College, and academically, he certainly did not graduate at the top or even near the top of his class, and yet he received an admission to Harvard Law School, a feat usually given to top students from the undergraduate colleges, including the Ivy, Columbia College.
Obama was also given racial preferences in his admission to Columbia College, a feat usually given to top high school students and a few top few college transfer students. Obama transferred into Columbia from Occidental College and he admitted he was not a top student from his previous schools.
In my opinion, this process demeans every black, if there are any, who are able to meet the standards for admission to Law Review that the rest of the group has met in gaining admission. The Latin honor of magna cum laude is a meritorious one, but admissions into Harvard Law Review is not necessarily meritorious, because, race based AA is used for blacks, even for magna cum laude blacks.

You should ask the Reverend Al what he had in mind when he made this statement. Obama was an example of a major beneficiary of these race preferences, including his admission into Harvard Law Review.
This is happening today because of political correctness in the academic community and American politics, not because race preferences are morally just and correct. The tide is turning in American politics to get rid of race preferences in admissions to elite schools.
Hey Cobra, I also know some Asian American Harvard Law graduates who graduated magna cum laude, as well as summa cum laude, who were either denied admissions to Harvard Law Review or saw Law Review as racially biased in its admissions.
However, blacks can also be beneficiaries of the said preferences.Police decision-making relies on a myriad of factors to include the individual officer’s characteristics, the environment the officer.
