Supreme Court Hearing Affirmative Action Case at University of Texas

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

A program at the University of Texas is being challenged by the Supreme Court because it considers race in some of its admissions to the school. The case in the Supreme Court could cause new limits for affirmative action at universities across the country.

The argument began on Wednesday morning and Abigail Fisher was in attendance. Fisher is the white student from Texas who was denied admission to the school.

According to the university, the program fills about one quarter of its incoming classes and uses race as one of multiple factors when deciding admission of students. The school also argues that the program has to use race so it can provide diverse educational experience for students, which is something that the Supreme Court endorsed in the past. The remaining spots in the classes are given to students based on their class rank, with absolutely no discussion of race.

“How do they figure out that particular classes don’t have enough? What, somebody walks in the room and looks them over to see who looks Asian, who looks black, who looks Hispanic? Is that how it’s done?” Justice Antonin Scalia said.

Justice Elena Kagan will not be involved in the case because she worked on it as a member of the Justice Department prior to her joining the Supreme Court. A decision should be rendered by June.

    ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
