Is the US Supreme Court finally ready to strike down the discriminatory concept of affirmative action for good?
The court has agreed to reconsider the concept, especially in light of the famous Harvard admissions case that empirically proves more academically proficient Asians and whites are being rejected in favour of less prepared black students.
Surprisingly, it was the state of California that overturned affirmative action laws as unfair in the 1970’s, only to have the US Supreme Court uphold them by signing on to a brand new concept — diversity. We all know how that turned out.
Anthony Kronman, former Dean of Harvard Law, writes about the culture shifting case in his book “Assault on American Excellence”:
Regents of the University of California vs Bakke (1977) US Supreme Court - dumped proposed the affirmative action program and suggested that instead of trying to repair systemic injustice, they look to achieving greater diversity in the student body.”
(Supreme Court Chief Justice Louis F) Powell’s insistence that diversity is the engine of academic freedom, and not its enemy, will seem ironic to those who view it’s mature expression in today’s colleges and universities as an instrument of orthodoxy instead.“
How ironic that California opposed affirmative action in 1977, while the Pandora’s Box of diversity was opened by Chief Justice Powell, an appointee of President Richard Nixon.
Notice the carefully chosen words here?
Harvard admissions case that empirically proves more academically proficient Asians and whites are being rejected in favour of less prepared black students. "
Apparently the Black applicants are not lacking proficiency they are merely "less prepared"
