Law schools, training attorneys and a high percentage of civic and corporate leaders for a society in which all races, all nations would have to work together, were fighting over a limited supply of qualified African American and Latino applicants, said Parker, whose perspective comes partly from an earlier career as a civil rights lawyer.
