The University of Texas will pay Washington lawyers close to $1 million to defend the admissions preference it gives to white students in a case now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Oh, did I say a preference for white students? Silly me. That clearly would be illegal, wouldn't it?
what's the difference really? These preferences are nothing more than
state-sanctioned racism, every bit as repugnant to the Constitution as
segregated schools, beaches and buses. Just like Brown v. Board of
Education overturned a century of "separate but equal," it is time to
end "affirmative action" programs that do nothing more than perpetuate
racial and ethnic divisions in this country.
More about the case here. Should be an interesting one, particularly with Justice Kagan recusing herself.
