A Detailed Look at the Downside of California’s Ban on Affirmative Action

Ending racial preferences in a state university system harmed Black and Hispanic students while doing little to lift whites and Asian-Americans, a study asserts.

I'm confused a bit.  Latinos make up the largest ethnic group of students admitted to the UC universities this year.  This is WITHOUT affirmative action.  How did ending AA harm Hispanics if they now make up the LARGEST group of incoming students?

latinos have also made up a larger enrollment than whites in the past 4 years, with asians continuing to hold the #1 spot by a large margin. 

i think we just need to "re-affirm" our action and now whites and blacks get preferential treatment over asians and latinos...that's how this all works right?
