Race-based Scholarships in Post-Prop 209 California

How many lawsuits will it take before the law is obeyed?

Thirteen years after California amended the state constitution to bar the government from discriminating against or preferring individuals or groups in admissions, contracting, and hiring, on the basis of race and sex, courts still are eradicating discriminatory provisions from the code. Proposition 209 passed with 54 percent of the vote.

Earlier this week, Sacramento Superior Court ruled part of the state health professional scholarship program unconstitutional.

It'll take a good, long time. Remember, affirmative action is a lefty's dream. There's no risk or cost coupled with the pretense of courage, generosity and good-deed-doing.

Asking how long it will be before the law is obeyed is the wrong question. The question you want an answer to is why should the law be obeyed?

What it'll take is one lefty being packed off to the slam for contempt of court and the rest of them will fold since this isn't an issue of conscience but of self-indulgence. Set the price of self-indulgence up a trifle and they'll move on to some other form of self-indulgence.
