While the United States Supreme Court in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin vacated the judgment and remanded the case for determination of whether the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decided the issue under the Constitutionally mandatory strict scrutiny guidelines, a concurring Opinion of Justice Clarence Thomas and the dissenting Opinion of Justice Ruth Ginsburg elevate the case to near landmark status. The issue preserved is the constitutionality of benign racial engineering in higher public education by state actors...
The Courts narrowly tailored Opinion in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin did not require decision on whether there were any actual cognitive benefits for those admitted under the Universitys subject racial engineering initiative...
The book Cognitive Evolution recounts and addresses the true narrative of a former American slave. The womans story was originally told in Genoveses The World The Slaves Made. When discussing her life under slavery the former slave ( then a legally free woman) exhibited the cognitive state of a perfectly acculturated slave. She recalled that her slave master told her about Christianity and life everlasting in heaven. But she confided in the interviewer that she wasnt so sure she believed in all that. What did she long for? She pined for the good old days of slavery, concluding that would be heaven enough for me....

Fascinating piece. I was struck by the cognitive state of a perfectly acculturated slave.

Do you think the arguments of Justice Thomas will prevail when the Court ultimately decides the affirmative action issue in light of Today’s DOMA ruling?

The supes are compromised and can't rule on simple language.
The country is lost .. there is no check .. no balance.

You are on target re: simple language. We are witnessing a redefinition of words.
What does racial discrimination mean?
We know the definition of a male and a female, but what do the words man and woman mean? Husband and wife? Consummation of a marriage?

From the column:
Mr. Justice Thomas cited data for subsequent examination of the issue concluding:
There can be no doubt that the Universitys discrimination injures white and Asian applicants who are denied admission because of their race. But I believe the injury to those admitted under the Universitys discriminatory admissions program is even more harmful. Blacks and Hispanics admitted to the University as a result of racial discrimination are, on average, far less prepared than their white and Asian classmates
Tellingly, neither the University nor any of the 73 amici briefs in support of racial discrimination has presented a shred of evidence that black and Hispanic students are able to close this substantial gap during their time at the University
.The University and its dozens of amici are deafeningly silent on this point.
The book Cognitive Evolution at great length investigates how the esteemed Frederick Douglass escaped the cognitive snarls of slavery. The answer is basic. He learned to read like the white boys with whom he played. He overheard his slave master berate his slave mistress for teaching him to read the bible. The master explained, Reading unfits a child to be a slave.
We have two vivid examples of this, with two very different outcomes. First is Justice Thomas, who has elevated himself to the highest position his training and experiences allowed so far. The other is Soetoro/Obama, a ner'do-well that was groomed and foisted on an unschooled populace as the pinnacle of America's greatness. Sadly we know that is false, and the lack of his intelligence is more apparent every day.
I know there was a President that went to the Supreme court - how about a Justice elevated to President? ;^)
