Interesting! I do like the idea of 'flaunting' individual racial diversity exclusively through essay. One of the most important results of so-called affirmative action policies to be had is the awareness of historical racial inequalities and subsequent improvement. A clear articulation by URMs of the social significance of their racial identity demonstrates concern and dedication more so than simply checking off a box.
But of course, law schools certainly could just reduce diversity statements into what is in place now.
