The court was debating whether or not Affirmative Action programs could be banned by voters through referendums. A referendum allows voters to approve or reject a particular proposal that has been passed through legislation.

New York Times’ reporter David Leonhardt tweeted out the quote, he wrote:

    Affirmative Action is hurting minorities more than people admit. It holds them to a lessor standard. Maybe if they’d kept it at everything being equal then give it to the minority instead of the diversity bs it would work better.

    Wow. When we were children growing up, we were all taught, and subsequently all thought the Supreme Court meant something. that it stood for something. In the last few years, I have seen the Supreme court stand for les and less. When they ( supreme court) voted to allow corporations to spend unlimited amounts of campaign money, and therefore basically buy elections my childhood memories of integrity chipped away. Shortly after they voted to take away the voting rights act, and soon affirmaitve action will be gone too. Scalia’s rant has all but taken away any real dignity and objectivity the Supreme court had left. The fact that Clarence Thomas is an unashamed member of the Tea Party, to go along with Sclalia it is painfully clear that this group of justices has more in common with the supreme wizard (KKK) than any supreme court. They have no integirty left whatsoever.
