Abstract

The Civil Rights Project deeply regrets yesterday's decision by the Supreme Court, which ruled that Michigan's Proposal 2, banning race-conscious college admissions, is unconstitutional. The decision overturns a lower court's ruling that the referendum violated the federal constitutional guarantee of equal protection. The Supreme Court's decision exemplifies how legal decisions can ignore the stark realities of our nation and the deep racial inequalitites that continue to exist in America.
