    Supreme Court Taking On Race-based Case Right Before Midterms

    Published on

    President Johnson’s Civil Rights Act of 1964 affirmative action effort said that minority job contractors had to be considered and a specified percentage recruited to equalize the minority/non-minority agreements.

    Some people believe that minorities still require a boost and special treatment when applying to schools and universities, even though the Act was signed 50 years ago. Affirmative action is opposed because it is believed to have failed to close any gaps that may have existed.

    After many years, some people believe that the program designed to help minorities gain more equality has dominated the college application process to the point where qualified students are at a loss because they are not minorities.

    Racial quotas are illegal, but a school’s use of “affirmative action” to accept more minority candidates was constitutional in some situations, the Supreme Court concluded in 1978.

    If that is as clear as mud, then it’s not difficult to comprehend that the distinction between “affirmative action” and “racial quotas” is still being made today. The original intention of not having race matter has been replaced with a more defined definition of race in the contemporary atmosphere of charges of racism.

    ABC considered:

    “In her 2003 opinion upholding affirmative action in higher education, Justice Sandra Day O’Conner famously predicted that in 25 years ‘the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary’ in America. Next week, years after that milestone and with lingering gaps in minority college acceptance and achievement, a new group of justices will decide whether to overrule O’Conner – and more than 40 years of precedent – to declare that admissions policies must be race-blind.”

    The Supreme Court is about to hear that particular case, which involves Harvard University, the oldest private college in the country, and the University of North Carolina, the oldest public university in the country.

    According to ABC, “Students for Fair Admissions, a conservative and multi-racial coalition of 22,000 students and parents, sued the schools in 2014 alleging intentional discrimination toward Asian American applicants in violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.”

    “Harvard and the University of North Carolina have racially gerrymandered their freshman classes in order to achieve prescribed racial quotas,” Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Fox News.
    “It’s very clear to me that Harvard University was engaging in blatant discrimination. And what they were doing was they did not like the fact that Asian-Americans – if they were simply admitted based on their credentials, qualifications – would have such a huge percentage of the student body,” he continued.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    Sentiments are being loudly expressed that race shouldn’t matter at all; that a student’s achievements should be the measure of admission.

    “Every college applicant should be judged as a unique individual, not as some representative of a racial or ethnic group,” SFFA Pres Edward Blum.

    Supreme Court to hear case that could end 40 years of race-based affirmative action in university admissions. CONTINUE READING…
