U.S. Supreme Court Takes Action Against Affirmative Action

At least the Supreme Court still has some sense.

On Tuesday, the court announced its support of the Michigan ban against Affirmative Action, one of the most misguided and destructive Equal Rights policies ever to crawl out of the Congressional docket. Like many antiquated U.S. institutions (such as labor unions) Affirmative Action came about at a time when it was actually needed, but many have twisted it to unfair advantage, leading to reverse discrimination in the workplace. Of course, in their recent 6-2 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court didn’t say that; they simply stated the federal government didn’t have the authority to tell Michigan what to do. Also an intelligent call.

Our reliance on the policy today is indicative of many national policies we've adopted promoting equal pay for unequal performance. Should a person receive employment or pay specifically for their race, gender or sexual orientation? In a country that loves to roll out the equality carpet, that notion seems decidedly unequal.

I won't be overly optimistic and say racism is dead in the U.S. It is not. But I'm about to say something VERY controversial: the legal ramifications of racism are nearly dead. Businesses (and colleges) drown employees in sensitivity training to such an extent that there is little chance of eliminating a qualified candidate for unlawful discrimination. If they did, the victim could sue for millions. Over-correcting a problem isn't the same as correcting it, and that's exactly what we've done, transforming middle-class Caucasian citizens into a kind of educational and economical minority. In conditions like that, why are states still holding onto Affirmative Action? Isn't the promotion of a race/gender/sexual orientation just as discriminatory as a demotion for the same reason?

Now that I think about it, I think that very idea was on an episode of 'Seinfeld.'

Sadly I think it is for the best that we lose it, if I am an employer the last thing I would necessarily want is harrassment based on my company and/or corporate hires. Education and experience should hold the main stage on whom I give a position to and justly that alone.

Here’s a think, hispanics do not necessarily apply here—there are numerous bilingualist positions everywhere for them, be it Greyhound, telemarketing or the SSI office, they have positions available to them should they speak fluent Spanish. This is part of our fabric.

Most of us love affirmative action, which spreads a wider net and enhances opportunity. This is NOT what the people of Michigan voted against. Most of us hate racial preference. THIS is what the people of Michigan voted against and what the Supreme Court upheld.

The idea of race is used aggressively and dishonestly by the left. Condi Rice was supposed to speak at Rutgers. She ran into big protests. The left thought this was okay. Imagine if the same happened to Susan Rice. There would be accusations of racism and sexism. To an unbiased observer, Condoleeza and Susan are the same race and gender, yet one is fair game.
