When The Supreme Court Met Michigan

A lot of people use shitty stock images when talking Affirmative Action

I guess I could've called this article 'Dr. Strange Court Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the "Post Racial America."' Today, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments about whether or not voters are able to institute a ban on Affirmative Action. This is the second time that a Michigan case regarding affirmative action has been seen by the Supreme Court. In 2003, the court, albeit divided, upheld affirmative action at the university level. However, in 2006, Michigan voters banned affirmative action in public education through an amendment to our state constitution.

The Court has already seen one case on this issue this year, throwing the case of Abigail Fisher back to  Texas to get more evidence or something. Unfortunately, most believe that the court will sustain the ban on affirmative action.

If you'd like to read more and are sick of search engines, then I have gathered some articles for you.

By the way, we are not a post racial America.
