The Supremes Strike a Blow Against Race Based Schools

The Supreme Court invalidated race based class assignment systems in two school systems: Seattle and Jefferson County, KY. The reasoning of Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Thomas is outstanding especially as they demolish Justice Breyer's dissent.

From Powerline:One poster writes:

You gotta love the clarity of CJ Roberts. Here’s the sound bite quote from the majority opinion:
“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”

ONE MORE: Another quote, this time from Justice Thomas:

Great line from Justice Thomas is worth noting (also nuking Breyer’s opinion): “Indeed, if our history has taught us anything, it has taught us to beware of elites bearing racial theories.” (comparing Breyer’s positions with those of the segregationists in Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown, and citing Dred Scott to boot). Ouch.
That's a revolutionary idea. I mean, seriously.
