You don't look right!

If you ask almost any adult in the United States if a person should be denied something due to the color of their skin (their race in case you don't follow), they would say emphatically "No!". Yesterday the Supreme Court of the United States made a ruling that helps keep this from happening. However, the civil rights "leaders" are and will continue to present this decision as "racist and bigoted".

The ruling and case I am referring to is the Michigan affirmative action ruling. Very basically it was to rule if a college can use affirmative action (discrimination) to enroll more minorities. The Supremes said "No". You cannot exclude a qualified candidate for the color of their skin. Affirmative action is nothing more than racism sanctioned by the government. Two wrongs do not make a right. Discrimination is just that, even if it is used for "good" purposes.

To exclude a more qualified applicant to increase minority participation is wrong, period. Think about it rationally. The Supremes got it right.
