The New Racism

Shanta Driver, who argued Schuette v BAMN before the Supreme Court and lost, 6-2, is protesting her loss:

This is a racist decision that takes us back to an era of state’s rights. This decision cannot stand.

Yeah. The 10th Amendment can’t be allowed to stand. It must be struck, and never mind that Article V bit; that’s just in the way.

Oh, and never mind that the outcome of the Supremes’ ruling was to uphold a decision by the citizens of Michigan to codify in their constitution the concept that race (or gender, ethnicity, or national origin) cannot be used as a criterion for selection for admission to college.

Because to be color-blind, to not use race as a mechanism for preferential treatment, is racist. The new racism.
