    Asked about his anti-LGBTQ video, Gov. Ron DeSantis said he considers it “totally fair game.” As @stevebenen writes, that says far more about the Florida Republican than those he’s eager to attack.

    In their haste to both ignore the history of the 14th Amendment and deny the extensive legacy of racism in nearly every aspect of life (which Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Jackson traced in exquisite detail) the majority left wide open an easy workaround

    Jennifer Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) tweeted at 6:50 AM on Sun, Jul 02, 2023:
    Put simply, as long as you allow students to tell their personal story of racism, race will get considered in the admissions process — to the chagrin of the right-wing justices and politicians who cheer this Pyrrhic victory.

    Jennifer Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) tweeted at 6:49 AM on Sun, Jul 02, 2023:
    Only in Roberts’s make-believe world is there a group of minority students who never experienced a smidgen of discrimination (e.g., had less accumulated family wealth because of the legacy of housing discrimination, had to have “the talk” re police)

    This is a bonafide scandal. On the legal level, it means the Court decided a case that wasn’t a real case or controversy as Art III requires. On the political level, it

    Man cited in Supreme Court LGBTQ rights case says he was never involved

    Ending Affirmative Action does hurt Asians

    People were circulating the @washingtonpost article that said ending Affirmative Action helped Asians

    But that is only the case when in substitution they relied on testing and scores. W/ o that Asians saw their numbers drop

    Democrat, Environmentalist, & the establishment (@BlueSteelDC) tweeted at 8:26 AM on Sun, Jul 02, 2023:
    In the Supreme Court case the Students for Fair Admission were suing for a more standardize process in admissions, saying the subjectivity hurts Asians.

    The Justices correctly side step their request. In fact, if anything there will be more subjective criteria going forward.

    Democrat, Environmentalist, & the establishment (@BlueSteelDC) tweeted at 8:31 AM on Sun, Jul 02, 2023:
    They ignored this request probably:

    1. Asian acceptance at elite universities were well above the population at 25 to 35%

    2.,Colleges do have an interesting in looking at the whole student

    What makes Harvard the school of presidents is seeing factors other than scores

    3 this is a very under examined point although SCOTUS wanted a vehicle to get rid of the use or race – they don’t want constant lawsuits when ppl don’t get in

    The plaintiffs in the last two decades were frankly

    The number 1 reason ppl don’ get in is Math

    This is a scandal. The Supreme Court is now just a 9 person legislature, slinging takes and making law with cases that are basically made up by friendly right wing groups in order to get the new law they want from their 6 buddies on the court.

    This is not some fun story for a day. This is potential fraud on the Court. It warrants investigation, potential vacatur & disciplinary proceedings. It also should be seen as a consequence of the Court’s apparent zeal to hear this case which did not meet standing even w/o fraud.

    Maybe when some of the Black and brown colonized adoptees start to assert themselves as they live a different reality from what their very white church has taught them, there’s a cause and effect? Or maybe your kids see the unholy alliance between your church and the GOP?

    No, because that crisis could’ve been VERY easily handled in 2016. But y’all decided you were too pure, holy, sanctified, and deeply unable to vote for Hillary Clinton as President to net us what would’ve likely been 5-6 seat liberal majority in the Supreme Court.
