Affirmative Action and it's most recent self-proclaimed creation, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, coming tumbling down like the stinking giant they have become with today's Supreme Court decision in favor of white firefighters in New Haven Connecticut. The conservative majority ruled that it was un-constitutional for the City of New Haven to refuse to validate a test required for firefighter promotions simply because not enough minorities in the testing pool scored high enough to qualify for the promotions. The city feared legislation from minorities but the 5 to 4 vote made history & pulled the Title 7 plug by ruling that avoiding potential discrimination from one group doesn't make it cool to *actually* discriminate against another. D'oh!
"Fear of litigation alone cannot justify an employer's reliance on race to the detriment of individuals who passed the examinations and qualified for promotions," wrote Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.
When an African American can be elected President, there is no longer a necessity to level the playing field for so-called minorities.
