Following is from the ACLU:

“We are disappointed that today’s decision rejected the Seattle and Louisville plans. A majority of the Court nonetheless recognized that school districts have a compelling interest in racially diverse public schools. The view of Chief Justice Roberts that local school districts lack a compelling interest in racial diversity was emphatically rejected by a majority of the Court as a repudiation of Brown v. Board of Education. In a decisive concurring opinion, Justice Kennedy made clear that he disagreed with how Seattle and Louisville had structured their voluntary integration plans, but not with their efforts to end segregation.

“Even so, the rejection of the Seattle and Louisville school plans represents a significant step backwards in a nation where schools are becoming increasingly segregated by race and ethnicity. The ACLU, along with other organizations and individuals who believe in an inclusive society, will continue its efforts to bring fairness and equality to schools.”

What that seems to mean is that the ACLU disagrees with the 14th (“equal protection”) Amendment — which requires equal treatment before the law for all. Nice to be able to pick and choose which amendment you support!

They say that the court still recognizes racial integration (“diversity” in code-speak) as a good thing to be worked towards. No surprise. Very few people will disagree with that these days. But racial quotas have clearly been outlawed as a way to do it.

So how to do it? Through Christian outreach? I don’t think the ACLU had that in mind. Reading between the lines, what the ACLU seems to be saying is that they will support sneaky attempts to apply racial quotas — through selecting kids on the basis of parental income, for example. That too, would however fall foul of the 14th Amendment so should eventually get knocked on the head too, as it certainly should.

Amusing that they say they want to achieve equality when that is what the 14th Amendment MANDATES. It is they and their Leftist ilk who do their best to prevent its implementation

But Leftists have only ever given lip-service to equality, of course. Ever since Marx & Engels, what they have all really wanted to do is to divide people up into large groups and privilege one group over another. Up until quite recently, of course, it was whites that they wanted to privilege. The KKK were all Democrats, Hitler was a socialist and Engels was a fanatical German nationalist who spoke of “n*ggers” with great contempt. The failure of Hitler made Leftists change the groups they favor but they still do not have the mental complexity necessary to treat people as individuals.
