U.S. Supreme Court Hears Affirmative Action Arguments

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.5

The U.S. Supreme Court convened on Monday to hear oral arguments about whether or not race-conscious policies for student selection processes in cases at Harvard University and University of North Carolina should remain standing or be dismissed.   Anti-affirmative action group Students for Fair Admissions questions the current policy claiming that it “unconstitutionally discriminates” against white applicants as well as Asian Americans.  Chief Justice John Roberts has signaled his objection to race-oriented selections in other contexts several times in the past.
