The court says the ban puts an extraordinary burden on those who have to mount a long expensive campaign if they want to protect it.
C’mon White people. Lets find a place to go already.
Agreed. I just witnessed the most egregious ‘election’ (voter fraud) ever perpetrated on any nation, EVER. Did anyone really think for one second that 0bama would leave the White House?

And when dealing with government regulators such as the EPA (as I do daily), we are always told, “financial burdens are no defense in efforts to comply”.
I'm unclear on whether that is within the Constitutional Umbra or Penumbra.
Obumer’s plan working just fine.
Since anthropologists claim mankind moved out of Africa and spread throughout the world, then everyone can claim to be African-American and get a piece of the affirmative action pie
discrimination is okay, the leftists say
Yeah Its kinda funny. I thought I was using the available tools when I voted in favor of the ban 6 years ago. I didn’t know I was being unfair.
This is exactly where states need to start pushing back against federal tyrrany. C’mon Michigan tell that judge to blow it out is backside and enforce his little order if he can.
“a federal right that all citizens “have equal access to the tools of political change.”
That the smelly hairy Obama does that mean?
And that, dear readers, is ample proof that the writer of this opinion is most certainly using the actions suspected of many of our “affirmative action” employees.
If anyone even thinks of respecting judges after this, think again.
AP - Michigan’s ban on affirmative action in college admissions was declared unconstitutional Thursday by a deeply divided federal appeals court, six years after state voters said race could not be an issue in choosing students.
In an 8-7 decision, the court said the 2006 amendment to the Michigan Constitution is illegal because it presents an extraordinary burden to opponents who would have to mount their own long, expensive campaign through the ballot box to protect affirmative action.
Obama gets “re-elected” and the blacks get favored.
Firearms hunting season opens soon. Lots of folks at the range training.
Its crap anyway. the national group By any means necessary and the university of Michigan are the two down trodden groups that have fought us every step of the way.
Maybe Mitt Romney should file suit and declare that it was an unfair burden to expect him to overcome vote fraud.
Blacks is in charge now.
White helped put the there. Get used to it or get ready to stop it.Zimbabwe here we come.
Firearm deer season opened today.
So the decision opinion basically says “It’s unconstitutional because the pro-ponents of A-A lost the election.”? Seriously??
