YES! Justice Department to Sue Universities Over Affirmative Action
Applying for college can be as tough an endeavor as keeping Tess Holliday's rolls in a string bikini. If you're white or Asian, the admission process is even more difficult (see Thanks Affirmative Action: Asian Student with Perfect Grades Rejected from Colleges… and University of Oklahoma Shames Engineering Students for ‘White Privilege.’ Misses Key Irony…). Now, someone is finally avenging the dreams that were killed by affirmative action in universities. And that someone is the Justice Department. Goody gum drops.
Justice Department officials are planning a new project to investigate and sue universities over affirmative action admissions policies they determine discriminate against white applicants, according to a U.S. government official.
The project will be based out of the department’s civil rights division, which is now looking for lawyers interested in working on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions,” according to a person familiar with an internal announcement in the civil rights division.
Gupta, who is now president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, called the new project “an affront to our values as a country and the very mission of the civil rights division.”
“Long-standing Supreme Court precedent has upheld the constitutionality and compelling state interest of these policies, and generations of Americans have benefited from richer, more inclusive institutions of higher education,” Gupta said.
Both cases allege that race-conscious admissions policies result in discrimination against Asian American applicants.
You mean the Justice Department wants to end racial discrimination and base criteria on academic stuff, like grades?
This is sure to spark some outrage from leftist grumpkins. Affirmative Action wouldn't be missed by those who work hard and boast well rounded heads on their shoulders. But such talents are #IQPrivilege. Naturally, it won't take long for this to get twisted into a racist targeting of certain minorities.
Never mind the fact that the thing social justicers are defending is super duper racist itself...
