    Its interesting that all of the cases handed down in the past few days were 5-4 verdicts. Not a good sign imo...

    BUT it was ok when the 5-4 was liberal majority I take it?

    The problem is we have 4 Justices that are more interested in legislating then ruling on law.

    LOL! These were areas where segregation was not an overwhelming problem. Did you read the case?

    The only segregation occurring in the US now is on College Campuses by Blacks demanding segregated living and studying arrangements.

    Can you imagine the uproar if whites demanded a White only facility?

    On one of them, the 5-4 was a liberal majority...or at least the "liberal" justices formed much of the majority. That was the death penalty case...which, if you notice would be included in the "all of the cases handed down in the past few days".

    I doubt you even know their names, much less what they are interested in.

    Regardless, whether you think that it was a problem or not in Seattle, this will affect other places where it may be an overwhelming problem.

    Go to NYC sometime...take the F train up to Columbia. Its mostly black with a smattering of whites. At the Columbia stop all the whites get off.

    Sorry, but this country has a lot of segregation even now. It is mostly based around income inequality.

    Ahh yes, lets be all Star trek now, since you won't admit to Socialist or Communist idealogy. The entire argument your making now is that because someone has more money then someone else that is segregation and I assume your solution would involve coming up with some magic number that everyone should have a set amount of income and BIG BROTHER should take from those that have more and give to those that have less?

    Using your logic, Families generally segregate them selfs from non families ( well at least those with children) since they tend to all move into the same housing areas with extra bedrooms. Perhaps we should require that all hoses be built with exactly the same floor plan and same number of rooms and that EVERYONE married, family , single be given their own home? That nasty segregation.

    I can further assume that your TOTALLY against the predominately Black Colleges that exist and think each of them should provide preferential treatment at acceptance for whites to "even" out that segregation?

    "The only segregation occurring in the US now is on College Campuses by Blacks demanding segregated living and studying arrangements."


    did you forget to add , "in my inexpert layman's opinion", because that statement sure reads like it's presented as a statement of fact.

    It is a fact. I notice when you make your statements of "fact" about Islam and Sunni/shiite behavior you never add " my inexpert layman's opinion"
