Is this such a bad thing? I believe in Brown v. Board of Education, which stated that no decision on education can be made because of race. In 2003, the Grutter case established a "racial preference" in university admissions, which, IMHO, is unconstitutional. Most likely, SCOTUS is going to revisit that case, and reverse that decision. Thus, the spirit of Brown v. Board of Education will be upheld.The Supreme Court could decide this week whether to delve into yet another hot-button social issue: affirmative action.
At issue is a lawsuit brought by Abigail Fisher, a white student, who said she was denied admission to the University of Texas because of the color of her skin. If the justices vote to hear the case, it could mean a majority of the court is willing to curtail or further restrict race-conscious admissions policies at public universities.
