Get Real

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer delivered a scathing dissent after her colleagues, in a 6-2 vote, upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action. "In my colleagues' view, examining the racial impact of legislation only perpetuates racial discrimination," she wrote. "This refusal to accept the stark reality that race matters is regrettable. As members of the judiciary tasked with intervening to carry out the guarantee of equal protection, we ought not sit back and wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society."
