The test will measure the potential Justice's position on affirmative action. Conservatives are divided over whether the test should involve actually dipping candidates in a solution to see how white they are, or something else. "The test should be whether they can successfully join the Riverdale Country Club," said John Milk, a senior analyst at the Brookings Institute. The Riverdale Country Club is an exclusive single-race club, where non-whites are permitted to enter -- as waiters and servants. --------
