U.S. Supreme Court rules colleges and universities have to stop considering race in admissions!
While we were following the alleged gas leaks in Chicago, and the downstate Illinois reports saying the ground alert was from smoke in Canada… and trying to figure out if the formaldehyde and Benzene reports were correct or if it was chem trails or an alien who passed gas as it was flying over???? The US Supreme Court ruled that colleges and univerisities could no longer play the game of admission by considering race and forcing institutions of higher education to look for new ways to achieve diverse student bodies.
Whereas, Clarence Thomas wrote a significant reminder that the constitution and Declaration of Independence was equality for all men and it was his hope that this country will live up to its principles so clearly enunciated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States: that all men are created equal, are equal citizens, and must be treated equally before the law; the University of Maryland Eastern Shore stated ironically that “Today is a sad day for all of us who believe that everyone, regardless of race, creed, religion, or sexual orientation deserves the opportunity to succeed.”
So why is it a sad day to have the same things upheld that are written in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence?
Well, because historically it was denied, but then it wasn’t. Historically a lot of things happened that actually took place because of wicked men not following the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. And they were not targeting race, they even targeted women. Why they even targeted children as there were rights for animals long before there were ever any rights to protect children.
So there is already a constitution that protects the people that is even greater than any law… and yet… to call on those rights means those that might desire to play games for causes can no longer use race as a weapon, at least not for college admissions.
The Maryland Easter Shore’s full comment:
“Today is a sad day for all of us who believe that everyone, regardless of race, creed, religion, or sexual orientation deserves the opportunity to succeed. It’s well understood that higher education can help to tear down walls that have historically denied social mobility to all people. Affirmative action is not a crutch. It’s not an unfair advantage. It should not be illegal as a variable in the college admissions process. For decades, it has helped level the playing field to obtain a college education for so many who have the academic capability to achieve. It has also been a positive force for making inroads for diversity in the college experience, something that produces real rewards in today’s increasingly diverse workforce. With today’s decision, we have lost something of benefit to everyone. Nonetheless, this now stands as the new law of the land. While it harkens back to a history we hoped never to repeat, we will comply with this new standard. We will work with the University System of Maryland, the UMES Office of Admissions, and our General Counsel to ensure that we understand the details of this decision and its impact on our students. We will also follow guidance promulgated by the U.S. Department of Education to ensure that we remain in compliance with the Court’s decision.”
So… there it is folks. You can discern that one for yourself. But the affirmative action went the way of Roe versus Wade today.
The Associated Press said, “The court’s conservative majority effectively overturned cases reaching back 45 years in invalidating admissions plans at Harvard and the University of North Carolina, the nation’s oldest private and public colleges, respectively.

“The decision, like last year’s momentous abortion ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, marked the realization of a long-sought conservative legal goal, this time finding that race-conscious admissions plans violate the Constitution and a law that applies to colleges that receive federal funding, as almost all do.
“Those schools will be forced to reshape their admissions practices, especially top schools that are more likely to consider the race of applicants.”
Chief Justice John Roberts said, “For too long universities have “concluded, wrongly, that the touchstone of an individual’s identity is not challenges bested, skills built, or lessons learned but the color of their skin. Our constitutional history does not tolerate that choice.”
Justice Clarence Thomas, who was not a proponent of affirmative action, also wrote that — “The decision “sees the universities’ admissions policies for what they are: rudderless, race-based preferences designed to ensure a particular racial mix in their entering classes.”
Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court’s first Latina, wrote in dissent that the decision “rolls back decades of precedent and momentous progress.”
In a separate dissent, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson — the court’s first Black female justice (the one who doesn’t know what a woman is)— called the decision “truly a tragedy for us all.” She wrote, “With let-them-eat-cake obliviousness, today, the majority pulls the ripcord and announces ‘colorblindness for all’ by legal fiat. But deeming race irrelevant in law does not make it so in life.”
And of course Joey Avatar, from the White House, said he “strongly, strongly” disagreed with the court’s ruling and urged colleges to seek other routes to diversity rather than let the ruling “be the last word.”
Once again left liberals throwing the constitution out the window and wanting their own anti constitutional legislative ideology to be the law of the land. It’s time for some to go somewhere else where they can do all that kind of stuff and it won’t harm any one else. If there is such a place.
So we heard the news is already making this about a conservative versus liberal split over affirmative action and making it all about the Justices of color and of course race.
THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST IS NOT HAPPY WITH THE SUPREME COURT RULING? WHY IS THAT? WHO DO THEY ANSWER TO?
HINT… IT’S NOT THE CONSTITUTION LOVING “WE THE PEOPLE”.
KEEP ON PRESSING INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD! PRESS, PRESS, PRESS!
