Court limits use of race in school admissions

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected public school assignment plans that take account of students’ race.

The decision in cases affecting schools in Louisville, Ky., and Seattle could imperil similar plans in hundreds of districts nationwide, and it leaves public school systems with a limited arsenal to maintain racial diversity.

The court split, 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts announcing the court’s judgment. Justice Stephen Breyer wrote a dissent that was joined by the court’s other three liberals.

I literally feel sick.

Clarence Thomas, who almost never writes opinions or concurrences says this:

In another separate concurrence, Justice Thomas explains that schools in which blacks are racially isolated might actually be a good thing for such students, and gets snippy with the Court's liberals: "Regardless of what Justice Breyer's goals might be, this Court does not sit to 'create a society that includes all Americans' or to solve the problems of 'troubled inner city schooling'. We are not social engineers.

I guess he's been saving THAT up for 20 years.

I don't have time for a rant. I'm leaving for a few hours. But if I were to rant, it would have taken all of those hours to get every swear word in that I could muster up.

Yeah, Laffy. I'm having a very hard time keeping a civil tongue in my head anymore. After 6 years of choking it pack I'm invective constipated.

There is a way around this ruling. What the school district here does it is they take high density apartment areas and bus all those kids that live there to a different school in the "richer" part of town. That way, the other schools get more federal funding too, if they have a certain percentage of really poor kids going there. It has nothing to do with race, but it does even things out as far as race is concerned. Also there is none of the choice business involved, that's just the way they draw the boundaries and people know that. But I live in a smaller city, so it's easier to bus kids across town. In the larger cities it would be more difficult.
