NEW: In 6-3 decision, Supreme Court rules race-based Affirmative Action programs are unconstitutional, violate the 14th Amendment
· Jun 29, 2023 ·

The Supreme Court just struck a blow to Affirmative Action, ruling race-based college admissions quotas unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment.

The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts.

From the Daily Caller:

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday to block affirmative action in two closely watched lawsuits against Harvard and the University of North Carolina (UNC).

The cases, initially brought by a coalition of students, prospective applicants and their parents in 2014, challenged the universities' use of racial preferences during the admissions process, alleging they violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.

The court overruled its 2003 decision in Grutter v. Bollinger, which held that race could be a factor in the admissions process.

The one true systemic racism system left in the US, Affirmative Action, has just been abolished by the Supreme Court.

This is a huge victory for liberty and the rule of law!
