My whole life I have always been different. I was never interested in the opposite sex. I was the very fist girl from my school to take a girl to prom. I had to get lots of permission for them to even allow me to do so. Everyone around me has been supportive for me being out. I could not be happier to be able to be who I am and not hide from being with who I love. Living in Alabama, it is hard to be lesbian. I work as a certified nursing assistant and I have to hide who I am, because most are against it. I have been out since I was 14, I am now 22. I could not be more happier with myself, than I am being out to all my friends and family.

Only 7 percent believe it should be a major factor and 19 percent say it should be a minor factor. These views were reportedly shared by "solid majorities of white, black, Latino and Asian Americans."

In 2016, after the Supreme Court affirmed the right of colleges to consider race in admissions, a Gallup poll indicated that approximately two-thirds of the public disagreed with the Supreme Court. Only 9 percent believed that race should be a major factor in admissions decisions, and 27 percent said it should be considered a minor factor. The survey did not end there. [...]
