When Is It Reverse Discrimination?

Streaming Video - 2008
Rate this:
In 1989, a New Jersey high school faced a painful decision: one of two teachers with equal tenure and equivalent credentials-one African-American, the other Caucasian-had to be laid off. By 1995, the reverse discrimination complaint lodged by Caucasian teacher Sharon Taxman had become a national issue of great political and legal significance, leading to a surprising out-of-court settlement funded by civil rights groups. In this program, ABC News correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on that remarkable case, while anchor Cokie Roberts moderates a spirited debate between the President of the NAACP and the Director of Litigation from the Institute for Justice.
