Was Justice Scalia Right When He Said Blacks Should Attend Less-Advanced Schools?


During oral arguments concerning an Affirmative Action case, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “suggested that black students do better in ‘less-advanced schools’ that are on ‘slower tracks.’”

“There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less­ advanced school, a slower-track school where they do well. One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas.” (H/T: National Review)

Keep in mind that Affirmative Action only applies favorably to blacks. Justice Scalia could have said “blacks and whites,” but Affirmative Action by design excludes and discriminates against other races, especially Asian Americans.

Furthermore, “Scalia was not talking about black students in general. He was specifically responding to” Gregory Garre, the lawyer defending the university, and his “point about the specific subset of black students who would not be admitted unless you considered their race, who Garre contended would no longer be admitted under a race-neutral or race-blind admissions policy. He was making a practical argument about educational outcomes.” (H/T: The Federalist)
