In today’s Pope Center Clarion Call, Jennifer Gratz, the successful plaintiff in the case against the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admission policy that amounted to a racial quota system, writes about the recently argued Fisher case. She argues that the Court should admit its mistakes in the Grutter decision (where Justice O’Connor swallowed the university’s feeble case that “diversity” produces such great “educational benefits” that the justices should defer to it) and return to the jurisprudence of Brown v. Board of Education: racial discrimination in public education is unconstitutional.

I agree entirely. The country shouldn’t have to wait out the rest of the 25 years Justice O’Connor thought we should give university officials to play around with schemes for social engineering their student bodies based on the happenstance of each student’s ancestry.
