Why do you want to go to law school if you are afraid to talk about hot-button issues like affirmative action. If you become a lawyer, you will have to discuss uncomfortable subjects. This is good practice for you, because on an internet thread no one knows who you really are. If you can't discuss an issue like this one when no one can see your face, what're you going to do when a professor calls you out socratic style on an issue that you aren't comfortable discussing, or you get a case that is morally ambiguous? Just deal with it. The OP asked a valid question.
Though I agree that the question is valid, I actually think this is exactly why these threads turn out to be a disaster. People are far more likely to be overt bigots in these discussions, simply because they can hide behind the luxury of anonymity. When in person, people are probably going to be more sensitive to others. Not that it matters really...these threads never end well.
