Pretty much what we thought when we heard about the decision.
...companies are also watching nervously, fearing that the decision could expose their race-based hiring and training programs to civil rights lawsuits....
...“It’s become very popular, especially in the last three or four years, to have these race-based initiatives, and they are only beginning to be tested against the Civil Rights Act or against the Constitution,” Erin Wilcox, an attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, told The Epoch Times. Wilcox is representing students who claim that admissions policies at Thomas Jefferson High School in Virginia are discriminatory, in a case being appealed to the Supreme Court.
“I think it was really caused by a certain boldness on the part of our public officials and corporate America in believing that these rules didn’t apply to them, or that what they were doing is more important,” she said. “I think we’re seeing a proliferation that’s going to be reined in, starting probably with the Harvard and UNC cases, and I think certainly others down the pike.”...
The decision will also impact State and local governments, not only in hiring, but also in race-based discrimination which is called "preferential contracting." For example, under Wisconsin state policy, a racial minority will get a 5% "credit" on their bid to sell cars and trucks to the State and its subdivisions. Although they bid the same price (say, $10,000.00), their bid is deemed to be $9,500.00 under State policy. Yes, the buyer will still pay $10,000.00, but the buyer can feel so much better knowing that they legally discriminated against Whitey.
That crap is history after the lawsuits are won.
