College affirmative action back on Supreme Court’s horizon - The Washington Post Sorry about all the legal posts - part of the profession. But I try to make sure they have a definite political link. So they may hear one or even more cases soon. Good! I hope they turn it over. I think that Affirmative Action once had an appropriate place but that time has long passed. Even Obama has said that he would back the repeal of all affirmative action guidelines for colleges. Let's hope they do just that.
