This has already been ruled on in the Michigan case...
Bye Bye quota’s..
We already have an affirmative action product racial quota President. Too bad they didn’t give him some racial preference points during the debate, he might have had a chance at a tie.
The Left will either ignore the ruling or find a way around it. Their holy rites must continue.
1. Why aren't Asian-Americans considered a minority?
2. What is she suing for? What damages?..Does she want to be admitted? Or force the UT Bookstore to buy back all her Longhorn gear?
Seems like a simple case. Should the Obama girls, Bill Cosby’s offspring, Herman Cain’s grandchildren, Jesse Jackson Jr.s kids, etc. be given priority over someone else who may have grown up deprived, worked hard to overcome obstacles, but happens to have white skin, as they say: through no fault of their own?
The eyes of Texas are upon you....
yet thousands get taxpayer money for Pell Grants,
with TOTAL SAT scores of less than 800 !
Southern University at New Orleans, Louisiana Graduation rate: 4% Undergraduates: 2,590 Median SAT score: 715 Pell Grant recipients: 75.8%
Chief Justice Roberts will probably decide for the majority that Racial Quotas are not actually Racial Quotas. Rather, they are Racial Taxes and therefore constitutional.
I think it should be absolutely illegal for any federal, state or local government funded entity to EVER ask questions about race. Just the question being on applications should be a flat-out violation of the Equal Protection Clause, must less race being allowed to be used for quotas, admissions or hiring.
Any government agency or instutition that receives government tax dollars should be 100% color and race blind.

Seems a whole lot of people of color being judged by the color of their skin vs the content of their character. Funny the people who demanded a holiday for MLK seem all too willing to turn their back on his ideals.
Seems like the folks who believe in states’ rights have forgotten about them as far as this issue is concerned. Does a state have no right to set its own criterion without being second guessed by the federal government?
The question that always pops into my mind when I hear or read about this case is why is the challenge is coming from Texas. By that I mean, why is it necessary? I mean, yes, I’d love for the Sup Court to finally get it right and just strike down the use of racial preferences, but why are preferences even allowed in allegedly conservative Texas?
The GOP has controlled Texas for years now, and the legislature supposedly got more conservative in 2010. So why hasn’t the allegedly conservative Republican legislature and the allegedly conservative Rick Perry done anything about it? Surely they have some control over the public universities in the state don’t they? Why don’t they end the use of racial preferences?
Maybe I shouldn’t single out Texas, because I can’t recall ever hearing of a Republican controlled state govt stepping in to end preferences in their public institutions of higher learning. They’ve done nothing at the federal level either.
Why is the GOP so worthless on this issue?
Over at Texas A&M, they have their own Diversity Plan that's much more extensive than just admissions. I'm sure UT has the same - and you'll find the same at other universities if you just know where to look.
Don't make UT the scapegoat in this.
