Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?
Worth Fighting For
Last evening, Michigan's attorney general, Bill Schuette appeared on Megyn Kelly's show, "The Kelly File."
The subject was a Michigan "LAW OF THE LAND", banning the use of racial preferences in school selection efforts. Schuette is arguing to sustain the 2006 "Michigan Civil Rights Initiative," a referendum that was overwhelmingly supported with a 58-42% margin. As a reminder, 2006's prop 2 based addition to the state constitution reads:
§ 26 Affirmative action programs.And the race hustlers are out trying to have single Federal judges rewrite the will of Michigan citizens.
More below the fold
Our attorney general is taking an (6th circuit) appeals court decision to the next step; the US Supreme Court. The nation's highest court will decide to uphold the will of the people and apply PROPERLY the 14th amendment, or it will continue its backsliding ways and cater to divisive interests and unconstitutional folly.
Schuette's appearance on Kelly's show allowed Michigan's fight for true equality to become more nationally appreciated, and for good reason. If the court sides with Michigan citizens and affirms the ban on racial preferences, the implications to admission policies by universities, and hiring by governments around the country could be considerable. When questioned about reductions in enrollment by blacks and latinos:
"Schuette called that argument "nonsense."A good point, abeit one that had limited relation to the question answered.
The answer however, might be simpler if folks are willing to consider it.
What if; The reduction in black and latino enrollment was in fact the result of the proper balance based on admissions without skin color preferences reasserting itself? Is it so hard to grasp that SOME students prior were being admitted not because they had any skills but because of the policies 2006 prop 2 was enacted to resolve?
The fact that some still worry whether a certain percentage of their race is participating in any particular endeavor is troubling, and underlines the need for absolute bans on such preferences and divisiveness.
If only to finally be able to move forward.
Bill Schuette's mission is quite appropriate and we wish him well.
