And The Good News Keeps On Rolling In . . . Not!

I don't think any of us are all that surprised by this latest decision handed down by the Supreme Conserva-Court.

You've gotta love the arrogance with which Roberts' explains his decision, even though it totally disregards all of the arguments that exist for affirmative action:

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race,” he said. His side of the debate, the chief justice said, was “more faithful to the heritage of Brown,” the landmark 1954 decision that declared school segregation unconstitutional. “When it comes to using race to assign children to schools, history will be heard,” he said.

All of a sudden Justice Kennedy starts talking sense:

The four justices were “too dismissive” of the validity of these goals, Justice Kennedy said, adding that it was “profoundly mistaken” to read the Constitution as requiring “that state and local school authorities must accept the status quo of racial isolation in schools.”
