The Court has come to rest on the bottom-line conclusion that racial diversity in higher education is only worth po- tentially preserving insofar as it might be needed to prepare Black Americans and other underrepresented minorities for success in the bunker, not the boardroom (a particularly awkward place to land, in light of the history the majority opts to ignore).106 It would be deeply unfortunate if the Equal Protection Clause actually demanded this perverse, ahistorical, and counterproductive outcome. To impose this result in that Clause’s name when it requires no such thing, and to thereby obstruct our collective progress toward the full realization of the Clause’s promise, is truly a tragedy for us all.
Can the supreme court decision to abolish affirmative action be reversed at any time?
The Supreme Court has decided to abolish the affirmative action policy that benefited Black Americans. I am wondering if that decision can be reversed at any time and how easily it could be reversed were the government or Supreme Court decide to do so, and is there a historical precedent that shows this being done?
