Friday night topic: The Court, affirmative action


— 5:55 PM on June 27, 2003

There were a number of important rulings from the U.S. Supreme Court this week, not least of which was a ruling on university admissions policies using race as a factor. The court issued a mixed ruling that most folks seem to believe will allow race-conscious admissions policies to continue. Like too many court rulings lately, this decision appears to have settled this particular case without settling the larger issue.

Anyhow, what do you think about the ruling? And in a broader sense, what do you think about using race as a factor in admissions and hiring policies? Yea or nay?

Discuss.
