Supreme Court Finally Blasts College Racism
And Thomas teaches Jackson a lesson
Of course, the Supreme Court decision in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina, the Harvard and UNC racist admissions cases, is not the end of liberal racism, nor is it the beginning of the end of liberal racism. But it is, probably, the end of the beginning in the political and cultural fight to stop ruling class racism and get our racist rulers to cool their racist jets. Just a little.
And let us be clear what is going on here. The whole point of being a ruler is to direct traffic. It is an insult to the glory and the conceit of all rulers down the ages to limit their power to gift their friends and to destroy their enemies.
I think that the cherry on the frosting is Justice Thomas’s takedown of Justice Jackson. First, Justice Jackson’s whine:
With let-them-eat-cake obliviousness, today, the majority pulls the ripcord and announces ‘colorblindness for all’ by legal fiat. But deeming race irrelevant in law does not make it so in life.
Guess what. You missed the point, Justice Jackson. The decision does not make race irrelevant in law. It just says that, in law, Americans cannot discriminate on the basis of race in university admissions.
Meanwhile, of course race is relevant in life. For instance there is the relevance of the fact that ruling-class racism over the past two centuries, first discriminating against blacks and now discriminating in favor of blacks has made life worse, for blacks and for the rest of America.
And Justice Thomas, up from abject poverty in Pin Point, GA, advises Justice Jackson on the folly of ruling-class racism.
A contrary, myopic world view based on individuals’ skin color to the total exclusion of their personal choices is nothing short of racial determinism.
Really, we should thank President Biden for nominating such a lightweight to the Court. Thanks Joey. And thanks for coming out so clearly against the Court.
The Court has effectively ended affirmative action in college admissions. And I strongly — strongly disagree with the Court’s decision.
Bless your heart, Mr. President.
And I love the reaction of the racist Harvard administration.
We write today to reaffirm the fundamental principle that deep and transformative teaching, learning, and research depend upon a community comprising people of many backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences.
For some reason, I get the feeling that the lower-class White Trash “lived experience” is not affirmed at Harvard. And for some reason I have got the idea that “teaching, learning, and research” in today’s university is as shallow and superficial as has ever been seen on this planet. To say nothing of the research replication crisis.
And the funny thing is that the Harvard administration and liberal racists everywhere really believe that their anti-white, anti-male, anti-Asian world view is the highest and best that humans can strive for.
In fact, of course, it is just politics as usual, in the spirit of Óscar Benavides, president of Peru from 1933 to 1939:
For my friends, everything; for my enemies, the law.
Yes. Let us rehearse the distinctions raised by Nazi jurist Carl Schmitt in The Concept of the Political.
[I]n the field of morality, the distinctions are good and evil; in the aesthetic, beautiful and ugly; in the economic, useful and harmful, or, for example, profitable and nonprofitable…
The specific political distinction to which political actions and motives can be traced is the distinction between friend and enemy.
Because of the nature of politics, I say that the more of human life that we can remove from the political, the more than individual humans and humanity in general will benefit.
Your mileage, and the mileage of “deep and transformative” teachers at Harvard, may vary.
BTW, given the 58-page concurrent decision by Justice Thomas blasting government racism, I suggest that if the United States ever builds another battleship it should be named the USS Clarence Thomas.
