The Constitution is written for “individuals”... without specificity of race, etc. This is crystal clear. Creating “diversity” (e.g. - simply based on skin color or race or created identities) through gov mandates, etc., simply creates inequality and is unconstitutional. This should never have been allowed, ever. My question is how long until DEI/ESG are similarly eradicated based on it’s own racist ideologies. The number of friends, including myself, who have had to sit through DEI “trainings” is vast. The effort to propagandize and destroy the workplace is WELL underway.

It's only a matter of time before the right people start filing suits against private corporations for DEI/ESG-related practices. However, change will be slow initially, and some management teams will begin masking these practices. It will definitely be interesting to see how this plays out...

The next logical question, is how will this affect hiring practices, or promotion & advancement? Especially in government institutions. But also corporate America too. The leftist are far from "color blind" and actually are the real racist, in many of life's aspects. Without their separate group ideologies, how can they continue to pander to various groups for support?

Re “especially in government institutions”. I’d also add companies/organizations that contract with the government. The issue spans far and wide thru the economy.

Gen; Couldn’t agree with you more! I’ve seen far too many damaging outcomes both to the organization and to those individuals in those organizations due to affirmative action.

I would like to see how this also affects the awarding of government contracts; many of which are based on minority or female ownership.

I'd say that's up next. Let someone bring a challenge to the courts.

In these times I never thought we’d see a decision that supports equal opportunity over equal outcomes. Absolutely stunning! The fact that this is stunning shows how far we had fallen to date. Let’s stay on this course. Someone please hold the rudder firm.

Many colleges, including Harvard, have already junked SAT and ACT scores as criteria for admissions. These crafty "outcome equality" warriors are already searching for other ways to implement DEI in admissions you can be sure.

Fascinating but not surprising that the minority feels obligated to fight racism with more racism. It’s ok for the Left to allow racial profiling for college but not for cops.

Every single person alive, whether one realizes it or not, uses “profiling”: status, wealth, dress, car, education, sex, religion, and yes, race.

Profiling on a different level can also keep one safe and out of harm’s way: “the gift of fear” (innate intuition)

Here are some of the highlights:

"“One of the principal reasons race is treated as a forbidden classification is that it demeans the dignity and worth of a person to be judged by ancestry instead of by his or her own merit and essential qualities.”

“Many universities have for too long wrongly concluded that the touchstone of an individual’s identity is not challenges bested, skills built, or lessons learned, but the color of their skin. This Nation’s constitutional history does not tolerate that choice.”

“We have time and again forcefully rejected the notion that government actors may intentionally allocate preference to those “who may have little in common with one another but the color of their skin.” Shaw, 509 U. S., at 647. The entire point of the Equal Protection Clause is that treating someone differently because of their skin color is not like treating them differently because they are from a city or from a suburb, or because they play the violin poorly or well."

“…the Harvard and UNC admissions programs cannot be reconciled with the guarantees of the Equal Protection Clause. Both programs lack sufficiently focused and measurable objectives warranting the use of race, unavoidably employ race in a negative manner, involve racial stereotyping, and lack meaningful end points. We have never permitted admissions programs to work in that way, and we will not do so today. “

But hey - they'll still make sure as many LGBTQ people are guarding our nukes as possible-

This is best thing to happen since Roe was (correctly) overturned.

Affirmative action should never have been allowed to start with.

From Bakke to Fisher. Finally. As the vegetable-in-chief once said, “this is a big f*cking deal”.

Hallelujah, thank you for the succinct wrap up.

Finally, ration instead of ‘passion’.

Not anymore. I retired (forced) two years ago, after working 40 years. I cannot believe the attitude kids have now (and some adults)! It’s pathetic.

". . . we can be sure many universities will used some sore of pretext as a substitute for race-based admissions." Yes, they will.

And we need to be watching all of them making sure they don’t resort to race as a ‘slippery slope’

To slide by the Constitution.

Trouble is, they will use subtle and hidden tactics to circumvent the SCOTUS ruling. They will be hard to detect, by design And this is how it will work . . .

Would that they would've made this ruling decades ago, and we'd have been spared both the 0bamas, the poster children for what happens when AA consumes even law schools, and neither of whom would have been accepted and given JDs without the duress of Affirmative Action *scholarship*. Ditto Kamala Harris.

Wow! What a great decision. Finally, we have something to cheer about, at least for a little while. Thank You Very Much, Technofog for sharing with us all.

When President Kennedy and Martin Luther King died my Father sat all 5 kids down and told us that blacks and whites are equal. No one is better than the other. And if we had any black friends that they wanted us to know we were allowed to bring them home. Now imagine if every parent told their children this! In pre school you see the hug and kiss each other. They don't see the Color. I just feel that so many parents have not had discussions with their Children. I'll say this until the day I die, IT STARTS AT HOME. I stayed home with my Children and sacrificed so much to be home. And it was worth every minute. I have two amazing close to 40 year olds that argue with their wives about raising their children. My Son wants to raise them like I did. Another story. My youngest is raising his Son like I raised him! I'm reaping so many blessings right now. I thank God everyday for my Family. That's all that matters to me.
