After carefully reading Ira Katznelson’s When Affirmative Action Was White, write a unified essay that answers the following questions:
What does Katznelson mean by “affirmative action for whites”? What was the “Faustian bargain” that the Democratic Party made with its southern members, and how did this bargain widen the socio-economic distance between whites and blacks? What were the ultimate political consequences of this bargain?
It should be in Microsoft Word, 3-4 pages, typed, double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font with standard margins. Number the pages and give the essay a title. There is no need for a bibliography.
