It’s a weird time for the Supreme Court to be reviewing affirmative action. Certainly, they will end up confirming it, because if they don’t then there won’t be any Blacks or Mexicans in university at all and people will flip.
But why even bother? It just makes a spectacle to show White Americans, once again, how they are being abused by these hordes.
The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to take a second look at the use of race in admissions decisions by the University of Texas at Austin, reviving a potent challenge to affirmative action in higher education.
The move, which supporters of race-conscious admissions programs called baffling and ominous, signaled that the court may limit or even end such affirmative action. The advocates speculated that the court’s most conservative members had cast the four votes needed to grant review of the case in the hope that Justice Anthony M. Kennedy would supply the fifth vote to strike down the Texas admissions plan.
Justice Kennedy has never voted to uphold an affirmative action program.
The consequences would be striking if the court sided with the plaintiff in the case, a white woman named Abigail Fisher, and did away with racial preferences in higher education. It would, all sides agree, reduce the number of black and Latino students at nearly every selective college and graduate school, with more Asian-American and white students gaining entrance instead.
Yes, that is the issue, isn’t it?
Blacks and Latinos just can’t seem to compete with Whites and Asians. No one knows why.
What we do know for a fact is that it has absolutely nothing to do with this graph:
– And that anyone who suggests there is any relationship there should probably be arrested immediately.
“Over the last few days, liberals have been celebrating a string of important victories involving health care and same-sex marriage,” said Justin Driver, a law professor at the University of Chicago. “But liberals have also been bracing themselves for the other shoe to drop. This decision to grant review means, at a minimum, that the other shoe will remain suspended in midair for the next several months.”
It can’t ever happen, because universities need diversity for some reason, and in order for diversity to exist in university we must simply accept that Blacks and Latinos will never be able to compete due to all of the historical racism done against them or whatever.
