Supreme Court: Racial Discrimination Is Still Wrong

Racial discrimination is wrong. There is no wiggle room; fancy words such as reverse discrimination, quotas, affirmative action, and others are cover terms for illegal, sinful, and counterproductive racial discrimination.

The Supreme Court’s statement that “Fear of litigation alone cannot justify an employer’s reliance on race to the detriment of individuals who passed the examinations and qualified for promotions” reduces the power of thugs and their intimidation in forcing racial discrimination. This is a small, but very important, step for equal justice under law in America. It will make deliberate racial discrimination in employment harder to justify. 

By reversing her support for blatant racial discrimination, the Supreme Court is telling us Sotomayor is unqualified and that racist appointments are racist acts. Those who support racist acts have no place in America, certainly not on the Supreme Court. Obama should withdraw her nomination immediately. Failing that, Republicans in the Senate should unite and stand strong. Democrats with a belief in fair play and those who have any distaste or aversion to racism should join with Republicans and send a signal that the Supreme Court is off limits to blatant racists.

It is fortunate for America that the Supreme Court, with the richness of their experiences, was able to see through Ms. Sotomayor.

I think we need to get rid of the term reverse discrimination. A rose by any other name...
