Stephen Colbert: Abrigail Fisher, Supreme Court ending Affirmative Action with Emily Bazelonon October 17, 2012 at 6:23 am
”I don’t consider race, people tell me I am white and I believe them because I look both ways when I talk about race.” Great line from Stephen Colbert.
Though it would not make any difference in the results of this case before the Supreme Court, Justice Kagan, a liberal, has recersed herself from the case which will make it a 5 to 3 rather than a 5 to 4. This will mean that less African-Americans will go to college, will get in graduate schools, will win contracts resulting in less movement into the middle class.
When I was 20 I could have done the same as Abrigail Fisher, though by the time I entered my 40′s I would have counted it as the worst decision of my life. History putting my name on the list including Bull Connor, George Wallace and David Duke. I bet Abrigail is going to one day suffer this decision for the rest of her life. The little redheaded girl who set African-Americans back a generation.
