Should a portion of seats in education/employment be reserved for people who belong to groups, members of which have been victims of historic injustice?
Should lower cut-off marks be decided for them?

Absolutely not. To do so reinforces the abhorrent idea that only with “special accommodations” can certain races achieve the same goals as other races. To embrace such a concept is to buy into apartheid hook, line, and sinker.

I don't understand the question. Since that is, in practice, even if illegal, what happens in the USA as a matter of government and quasi-government institutions. It is called affirmative action. And, in spite of not having quotas, there are quotas.
