The 6-2 decision upheld a Michigan constitutional amendment that bans preferential treatment based on race, gender, ethnicity or national origin. The ban on affirmative action applies not only to admissions decisions at public colleges, but also to state hiring and contracting practices.
I keep telling everyone that Jim Crow 2.0 is going on right now. The crazy thing about this is that White women and Asians get the most affirmative action benefits and these “minority” benefits. Anytime you hear about affirmative action or minority, the dominant society shows/talks about Black people. That’s the chess behind it. Minority doesn’t mean Black. Now when you have no black people enrolled in the school and no Black people being hired for state jobs they can say, “They just didn’t qualify”. This is even more of a reason to start being independent of the system.
