The Supreme Court has issued yet another opinion with which I agree, this time ruling that school districts cannot use race when assigning students to schools.
I'm going to stop here and make a political comment about CNN's story, to add one more data point to the argument about a liberal press bias. When Roe v. Wade was decided, would CNN have mentioned the "liberal majority" that decided the case? I don't think so. Would they have mentioned a "liberal majority" in Brown v. Board of Education? Don't think so there, either. Then why is it they write: "A conservative majority led by Chief Justice John Roberts said...." Why not just, "A majority led by Chief Justice John Roberts said..."? FoxNews used an AP story that said, "The court split, 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts announcing the court's judgment. The court's four liberal justices dissented."
OK, back to the ruling.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A bitterly divided U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday issued what is likely to be a landmark opinion -- ruling that race cannot be a factor in the assignment of children to public schools.
The court struck down public school choice plans in Seattle, Washington, and Louisville, Kentucky, concluding they relied on an unconstitutional use of racial criteria, in a sharply worded pair of cases reflecting the deep legal and social divide over the issue of race and education...
"The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race," Roberts wrote.
Equal Justice Under Law, indeed.
