On Desegration

What problems have arisen with desegregation?

The most salient point about this decision is that this EFFING court didn't even bother to get the kind of consensus that the Warren court did in 1954; i.e., for such a momentus decision it HAD to be unanimous. Not these bozos--5 to 4 would do just fine. A pox on their house. Roberts has NO idea how he will be held in the history of the court. FEH!

I second your "feh" and add an "oy".

I'm still sick over this. People died to desegregate schools and they just toss it off like nothing.

Would the usually silent Clarence Thomas be where he is today without the protections that the Warren court and Democratic administrations put into place? He'd just as soon roll back (with the other bozos) affirmative action as well - and will get the chance soon. This is what he had to say in his concurrence:

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.

Mind you, this man usually does not write opinion or concurrences. And screw the rest of the blacks in this country - he already got his.
