I was listening to Attorney Joe DiGenova this morning on WMAL and he pointed out how the DOJ had recently sent a letter to universities telling them they could ignore the June ruling by the Supreme Court on using race in admissions. The Supreme Court, in a nearly unanimous ruling, said that universities could use race in admissions but not as a dominant factor. But in this letter the DOJ is instructing universities to continue with the same racial preferences that the Supreme Court had just barred them from using:
WSJ Obama Administration regulators have made a specialty of ignoring Congressional intent, and even black-letter law. Now theyre showing the same disdain for the Supreme Court with advice to universities about interpreting racial preferences in the wake of Junes Fisher v. University of Texas ruling.
In a September 27 letter to university presidents, civil rights officials from the Departments of Justice and Education wrote that the Courts decision in Fisher means that universities can continue with their same racial-preference policies. According to the Administrations version of events, the ruling was merely a tweak on 2003′s Grutter v. Bollinger decision that racial preferences could be used to achieve diversity on campus.
That must be news to the Supreme Court, which in an 8-1 opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy rebuked Texas precisely because it had failed to heed Grutter. That decision said schools could use race in admissions but not as a dominant factor.

Sounds like the DOJ is expecting a ruling in favor of Michigan voters this month.
Then we can ignore the SCOTUS rulings on Obamacare, gun control, etc.
IS THIS REALLY where Obama wants to go with this??? If this is the case, get ready Obama and Holder, this will fly in your face like the fist of angry God.
I was kinda concerned after the ludicrous decision on HusseinScare, but it’s a relief to learn the administration’s official position on SCOTUS decisions. Thanks, The! (Can I call you The, or should I stick with President Won?)
Barry’s Gestapo is at it again.
I disregard Obama himself.
Obama wants a race war.
...Obama ignoring the law of the land.
Doesn’t this fall under the legal definition of malfeasance? The author of this policy is guilty of a criminal offense, not to mention liable for civil damages.
Time to face facts. It’s not an Administration, it’s a dictatorship.
>>SETTLED LAW! YOU CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT!
... (oh, I guess that’s only for 0-care)<<
If SCOTUS rulings are mere suggestions it is time to ignore obozocare.
I think so.
I hope that Makes John Roberts all warm and fuzzy after covering Nero’s ass in the NeroCare case.
Yep. Treat it like they have treated Citizens United ......
This lying phony thinks he is a dictator of a banana republic. And he stinks.
I am sorry, but WTH is going on?!?
This has to stop, it utterly has to stop.
So in other words, this administration is convinced you minorities are so incompetent and unintelligent that you MUST rely on Government imposed discrimination.
Serves you right for staying on the plantation. You deserve no better.
I am almost there in believing this.
Will somebody please let me know when the shooting starts?
