Claude Steele, in "Can America Really Be Colorblind?" (Commentary, Aug. 25), reiterated the opposing positions on affirmative action. Both he and Rep. Tom Campbell (R-San Jose), his opponent, wrung their hands, bemoaned the facts and sat smugly on their doctrines. Neither showed he was able or interested in making any progress to discover a resolution to the impasse. Well, maybe I can help.
