There goes Michigan’s chances for a future NCAA Basketball title, if they lose this one.
Affirmative action IS discrimination. How hard is that to understand?
The federal court of appeals gave a pretty bizarre reason for ruling against Michigan.
>>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<<
I don’t think sports scholarships are at question here.
You must be a white devil. Your genetically racist mind keeps you from seeing the truth.
The US Sub-Supreme court continues to show it is nothing but Kabuki Theater to make us think we still have a functioning constitution.
Constant 5-4 decisions tell any thinking person these are not constitutionally sound decisions but just political hacks in black robes doing the government’s or the communist party’s bidding.
If our constitution were still in force, this would not even take the USSC 30 seconds to decide.
It is unconstitutional to discriminate PERIOD. I don’t care if these, oh so quick to be outraged inferior, people had distant relatives who might have been slaves. Go back far enough we all did.
Nobody alive today has been forced to be a slave in the USA except for the majority who have their earned property stolen from them to give to people who were never slaves but too ignorant to use the education given to them to excel. We are the modern day slaves and time is long past for us to start pushing back and pushing back hard.
That’s a good point. One has to wonder if the USSC would be capable of coming to a 9-0 ruling on anything anymore. Would one or four of them rule that slavery was okay if it was done ‘for the good of the community’? One has to wonder.
I was simply being cynical . . .
Haha, I like that one.
I’d like them to decide if using athletics for admissions is constitutional.
It was called the Dredd Scott decision.
Chief Justice Taney (who fancied himself an abolitionist) ruled that Dredd Scott was NOT a person and Blacks were NOT to be given protections under U.S. Law.
It was a Major factor in why the Civil War broke out when it did.
But Taney still said he was an abolitionist though.
Does that sound familiar? (cough)Roberts, Deathcare (cough)
I’m sorry, I was referring to the current court. I should have made that clear, my apologies!
I just don’t think the current court would rule 9-0 on the sky being blue.
Never apologize Megan my dear.
The Current Court did that too!
It;s called Ubamacare.
They created a Tax just for being alive!!!
The Governments lawyers argued it wasn't a tax, but then it was.
The elites get what they want, I am know Roberts was bribed somehow (and honestly it probably wasn't very much) Look at Bart Stupak or all those other democrats.
Short term game, long term loss for us, but WHO CARES!?!? The Political Class got theirs.
They will want your money too, remember your kids will be hounded and taxed when they get older to pay the Deathcare tax.
No More private citizens for us, so if you think the government meddled in your affairs before, just think what they will do now.
“Affirmative action IS discrimination. How hard is that to understand?”
It doesn’t really matter what you say, whitey will always be at fault.
“affirmative action” is the same as race-based privileges, and is illegal and unconstitutional, regardless of any law that “allows” it.
New to be, and very cool. I’m gonna steal it for some personal emails.
