AAF on SCOTUS Ruling on Race-Based College Admission

Advancing American Freedom praised the Supreme Court’s decision ruling that race-based admission for colleges and universities stood in violation of the Constitution and the Civil Rights Act.

“Admitting some students for their race, while rejecting others for their race is unjust; every student deserves equal opportunity to try for admittance to the world’s best schools,” said J. Marc Wheat, General Counsel for AAF. “The Supreme Court has rightly ruled that admitting students to colleges based on race falls out of step with the 14th amendment and the Civil Rights Act. Our nation needs to remain a country filled with an abundance of opportunity where hard work is rewarded.”
