By 6-2 vote, the Supreme Court ruled today that citizens have the right to amend their state Constitutions to end state-mandated racial discrimination (a.k.a. “Affirmative Action”).
The only thing I have to add to the discussion is a point similar to the point I made about Illegal Immigration; Affirmative Action policies harm middle and working class whites to benefit minorities and elite whites. No politician, no old-money family, no TV news anchor has to worry about their son or daughter being denied a higher education slot in favor of an underqualified minority. The white middle and working classes bear the entire burden of affirmative action; and that is an injustice.
There is no White Privilege in America; there is only privilege based on wealth, social status, and political connections. And none of the people enjoying that privilege are willing to sacrifice their own social benefits to help out “underprivileged” minorities; any more than wealthy liberals are willing to give up their own money to address “income inequality.”
And, By the Way, heave you heard about the MSDNC personality who claims that, as a black person, she has no liberty?
