In this photo taken Wednesday, May 2, 2012, students gather around cafeteria tables at Sao Paulo University in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The country's top court has backed sweeping affirmative action programs used in more than 1,000 universities across the nation, which has more blacks than nearly any other country, yet where a severe gap in education equality between races persists. The Supreme Court voted 7-1 vote late Thursday to uphold a federal program that has provided scholarships to hundreds of thousands of black and mixed-race students for university studies.
