Ward Connerly comment on the Fisher v University of Texas decision:
The SCOTUS has, once again, betrayed the United States Constitution and a central tenet of American society and law that the color of a person’s skin should not be a factor in the public domain. As President John F. Kennedy said, “Race has no place in American life or law.” Fisher II is a tragic victory for “diversity” and a defeat for colorblind policy, including the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Now, the burden falls on “we the people” to reaffirm that we are a nation of individuals, not a collection of “races.” The people of Arizona, California, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Washington have expressed their collective contempt for race classifications and race discrimination. Unfortunately, four members of the SCOTUS are at odds with the people.
