Student Body Diversity Case To Be Decided By Eight Caucasians and A Black Guy

WASHINGTON D.C. ~ On Wednesday, six Catholics and three Jews will consider a challenge to the use of diversity in undergraduate admissions at the University of Texas in Austin. The nine justices all hold degrees from either Harvard or Yale. Seven are in long-term opposite sex relationships.

  • Justice Thomas was appointed by President George W. Bush after a search committee concluded him to be “the nation’s first and only reliably conservative black guy.”

  • In appointing Justice Kagan, President Obama hit what experts call “The Diversity Trifecta;” a Jewish woman who openly prefers “basketball” to “exercise class.”

  • Sandra Day O’Connor, the nation’s first female Supreme Court Justice, was nominated by Ronald Reagan, thereby fulfilling a campaign promise to “get a woman — any woman — on the court.” Today the retired O’Connor has a site devoted in part to the Bill of Rights, a document that — effective with the release of Citizens United — the court no longer considers important when crafting opinions.

198 of the 200 ABA accredited law schools are unrepresented on the Supreme Court, including every law school situated in the Central, Mountain or Pacific time zones.

Argument is ironically scheduled twenty-nine months to the day after the Court officially closed its doors to the public; the ones that say “Equal Justice Under Law” above the door.
