The Supreme Court could follow up on the overturning of abortion rights landmark Roe v. Wade with the scrapping of another one of the left’s most cherished institutions as the justices are set to hear two cases that could lead to the reversal of affirmative action, a civil rights era set of policies and practices aiming to end discrimination that has only led to more of it.
Next week, the court will convene to hear oral arguments on race-based college admissions, Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina, that will decide whether the schools engage in discriminatory practices against applicants who are not people of color, particularly Asians and white people.
The stakes couldn’t be higher with the court’s 6-3 conservative composition instilling dread in “woke” leftists that four decades of precedent in schools being able to use race as criteria could be coming to an end at a time when anti-white discrimination has become standard operating procedure in hiring decisions throughout corporate America under the pretense of diversity.
Groups backing the schools deny that the admissions decisions aren’t solely driven by race, one of the multiple factors considered for enrollment.
“Race is considered alongside socioeconomic status, where somebody grew up, what their parents’ profession was, what achievements they may have had in high school, ”Educational Opportunities Project with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law associate director Genevieve Bonadies Torres is quoted by The Hill.
“It’s that holistic assessment considering all forms of diversity and all characteristics that ultimately allows admissions officers to better understand a student’s comprehensive story, their comprehensive achievements and what they can contribute to the university campus and beyond,” she said.
“In an amicus brief this summer, the NAACP argued SFFA is attempting to instill a ‘revisionist interpretation’ of Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark Supreme Court case that said racial segregation in public schools is unconstitutional, even if the segregated schools are otherwise equal in quality,” The Hill reported.
“’Brown explained how the racial caste system established through chattel slavery demeans and subordinates Black people and thus promised to secure their equality in our educational system and as citizens of our democracy,’ the NAACP wrote.”
The cases will be heard as the country’s attitude toward race-based college admissions has shifted with a recent poll finding that over 60 percent of Americans now feel that race should not be a factor in determining enrollment.
According to the poll by The Washington Post and George Mason University Schar School of Government, 64 percent of respondents are supportive of the SCOTUS banning colleges and universities from considering a student’s race in determining admissions.

The new SCOTUS term also features the debut of Joe Biden’s own hand-picked example of affirmative action, left-wing Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson who was nominated by virtue of her skin color and gender with the nation’s 46th president eliminating all candidates with the exception of black women to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer whom some believe was forced out by the regime.
