The article discusses the changing significance of race in the light of the case Regents of the University of California v. Bakke. The author argues that the Bakke case's language of racial neutrality detached the law from the social and historical context of racial inequalities. It is noted that cases after Bakke have shown how the term diversity has been used by those in power. Attempts to change race-based programs through alternatives are found to be limited.
