Affirmative action is about to go down.
“The Supreme Court started the process of officially dismantling affirmative action in college admissions on Monday as it heard two cases attacking the policy. The cases were brought by the Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA), a group that claims to represent the interests of Asian American and Pacific Islander students who claim they were discriminated against by race-conscious admissions policies at the University of North Carolina and Harvard University. …
The eventual ruling, which will come down sometime before the end of June, will be a victory for white conservatives who have worked tirelessly to make college admissions a little easier for mediocre white children, but it won’t actually help the AAPI students who claim they are discriminated against in college admissions. I know that because the specific concerns of that community hardly even came up during the marathon five hours of Supreme Court oral argument. …”
It will be a big win.
The bigger win though is that people like this have lost their halo. Jumping up and down and stomping their feet and spilling tears about “racism” and “white supremacy” is becoming less and less effective.
