The U.S. Supreme Court has decided that the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution makes racial set asides in college admissions unconstitutional. Well, this is yet another ruling that cements this particular court as one of the best of all time.
Per Breitbart News:
The Supreme Court upheld racial preferences — euphemistically called “affirmative action” — in college admissions in the Bakke decision in 1978. Since then, debates have raged about whether to use quotas, point systems, or other ways of favoring one applicant over another based on the color of their skin, with the Supreme Court upholding some approaches while trimming the sails on others. Conservatives have insisted for half a century that the Constitution does not allow any of those approaches.
The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment commands that no state shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” The Supreme Court has always acknowledged that the central promise of the Equal Protection Clause is to forbid laws and public policies that discriminate on the basis of race.
While the Fourteenth Amendment applies only to state governments — which includes state and local public universities — Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also extends racial discrimination to institutions that accept federal tax money, such as in grants and tuition aid. That applies to almost every private university.
This is great stuff from the high court.
But, our useless, anti-American, left-wing system of miseducation is already moving to get around the meaning of the law and boldly saying they are going to start using “essays” only for admission so that they can use their racial quotas more quietly and without saying it out loud.
Sadly, even as this ruling is a good one and could have consequences that reach farther than just college admissions, the left does not care about rules or laws.
Their hateful agenda is above the law and everything they do is extra legal.
Our colleges need to be torn down and rebuilt, at this point.
