Supreme Court: racial discrimination (affirmative action) ok when we say so

See:Supreme Court upholds University of Texas affirmative action plan

***”Washington (CNN) — The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the race-conscious admissions program at the University of Texas, saying that the plan taking race into consideration as one factor of admission is constitutional.

The 4-3 ruling greenlights the limited use of affirmative action polices by schools.”***

Once again a majority on our Court has defied the 14th Amendment’s prohibition against distinctions which are based upon race, and has decided race based distinctions are fine so long as they meet our sense of justice, fairness or reasonableness, and screw the Constitution.

“The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice.” – Justice Hugo L.
