JESSE WATTERS (HOST): Primetime acknowledges that many Black Americans are heartbroken by this decision. We understand that. Many Black Americans acknowledge that they never would have achieved a certain level of success if it hadn't been for affirmative action. They own the fact that they were admitted because they were Black and maybe they didn't have the perfect application and I'm sympathetic to that. I get it. But a white person who's more qualified was discriminated against and didn't get in. And when you discriminate on race, some people win and some people lose. Do you want to discriminate against someone because something they can't control? Because of the way they were born?
