During oral arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas (looking at affirmative action), Justice Scalia made what should be a nontroversial comment about affirmative action. Liberals of course have to liberal over it.
There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas, where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a slower-track school where they do well. One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them.
He went on to say, “I’m just not impressed by the fact the University of Texas may have fewer [blacks]. Maybe it ought to have fewer. I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible.”
Scalia story is so dishonest. https://t.co/ALYx6NyuKA

Oh my God you guys…he said that maybe it doesn’t matter for colleges to have a certain number of (insert race here) just so they can humor people who only care about colleges having a certain number of (insert race here). He seems to think that maybe the only representation that should be heavily weighed by academic institutions would be… wait for it…
… academic accomplishments.
Now, while there’s a litany of low information leftist responses we could draw your attention to, here’s our favorite…
@ShaunKing he used the coward's "there are those who say" which is what every chickenshit bigot says when they know they're being bigoted

He said “there are those who say???” Who does Justice Scalia think he is, President Obama?
Welcome to 2015: the year where judging people based on their accomplishments, as opposed to their race, is considered racist.
