College diversity poised to take a hit: How can schools fight back?

November 2, 2022

Given the demonstrated lack of respect for judicial precedent among the current makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court — see the overturning of Roe v. Wade this summer after 50 years — it is unsurprising that the justices appear poised to strike down affirmative action and its five decades of precedent, as well. This was made clear by questioning from the court’s conservative supermajority Monday during oral arguments in a case involving race-conscious admissions at the University of North Carolina and Harvard. No need to wait for a leak of any draft; it’s almost certain that they will strike down affirmative action as a kind of reverse-discrimination, making no distinction between those whose ancestors came to the country in chains and those whose ancestors were enslavers.
