The article explains why this court ruling will likely be overturned.
The left CAN’T let racial privileges end! Their whole goal is to create a permanent, unhappy, angry underclass that will make their march to communism easier.
Holding everyone to the same standards would disprove their lie that all Whites are racists.
Race-based preferences are essential to the leftist world view. They aren’t letting go of them any time soon.
Anti-white racism is the lynch pin of the left, its even their key to the sacred treasury. Doubt me then go to kos for their anti-white screeds which show up in nearly every thread.
I see a Traitor-Not-My-Job Roberts special ruling in our future.
It's a tax. It's a penalty. It's a fee. It's a tax.
Whatever they blackmailed Traitor John with is still out there. I would expect him to be the same sniveling weasel he is now and make up law with the four leftist judges to support affirmative action.
Otherwise he might have to miss a cocktail party with the Kardashian Kelleys. The price would be too much to bear.
The appellate court ruled that the amendment to the Michigan Constitution disallows minorities access to a political process...it goes back to a footnote in Carolene Products...a case heard in the late 1930s. That case implied that blacks in the South had no access to voting and peer representation in government...it was the beginning of the movement to turn the Court into a grand legislature.
The person who profits from this law will complain bitterly, defending his acquired rights.
Do not listen to this sophistry by vested interests. The acceptance of these arguments will build legal plunder into a whole system. In fact, this has already occurred. The present-day delusion is an attempt to enrich everyone at the expense of everyone else; to make plunder universal under the pretense of organizing it.
Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim when he defends himself as a criminal. In short, there is a legal plunder...
Bastiat - The Law
“The U.S. Supreme Court may end all racial preferences in college admissions when it hands down a decision in Fisher vs. the University of Texas later this year.”
If this particular case is really that important, watch for the left to offer a cash bribe to Mr. or Ms. Fisher to withdraw the case so it won’t be heard (and hence, won’t be decided).
This is EXACTLY what the left did with the Taxman v. Piscataway School System case some years back. I’m sure most in this forum have forgotten, but Sharon Taxman was a teacher in the Piscataway (NJ) school system who was passed over for a position which was instead given to a black teacher. But the school made the mistake of telling Taxman the truth, that the black teacher was awarded the position because she was black.
This was as “cold as they come” a case before the Court for ending affirmative action in America, and the left knew it. The left knew they were going to lose.
Their “solution” was to offer Ms. Taxman $480,000 to withdraw her case before it could be heard. She did (as it happened, her lawyer had already bought a $2,000 suit for his oral arguments before the Court). She had the opportunity to strike a blow for equality before the law — a case that would make history — and she “sold out” for the cash.
If the Fisher case is that ironclad, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this happen a second time.
Also, I believe that somehow Chief Justice Roberts was “gotten to” by the administration thugs to switch his vote on ObamaCare (there may have been problems in his past, particularly concerning the adoption of his children, that he didn’t want made public). Perhaps the Obammunists will remind him that he still “owes them” on this case, as well.
