SCOTUS Nixes Reverse Racial Discrimination in College Admissions

John W Lillpop


Eradicating racial discrimination should be a goal of all for all in a society that bills itself as committed to equality.

Unfortunately, for far too long, progressives have been able to sell the notion that Affirmative Action, an euphemism for reverse discrimination, is acceptable as a remedy to counter discrimination suffered by people of color.

However, the Supreme Court ruled otherwise on Tuesday in deciding the fate of racial preferences as a basis for admissions at the University of Michigan. By a vote of 6-2, the court upheld Michigan’s ban on the use of race as a factor for determining college admissions.

This decision sends a long-overdue message: Two wrongs do not make a right!
