Antonin Scalia: Affirmative Action Is Bad Because Blacks Are Too Dumb For Good Schools

Antonin Scalia: Affirmative Action Is Bad Because Blacks Are Too Dumb For Good Schools

Even though it had come up before the Supreme Court once already, and a lower court had decided that affirmative action really had no bearing on the University of Texas rejecting her admittance, Abigail Fisher had her reverse racism case heard by the highest court in the land again on Wednesday. And the judges on the bench pretty much argued along partisan lines just as they had previously. Once again, swing vote Anthony Kennedy seemed indecisive, and suggested that perhaps this be tossed back to the lower courts.

So, why is this news, if it seems like the case may not be settled anytime soon due to Kennedy still being on the fence and wanting the lower courts to decide? Well, it is because fellow Justice and syphilitic bullfrog Antonin Scalia decided to let his racist flag fly during oral arguments, stating his belief that black students may benefit from going to schools that are academically easier. Why? Likely because they are stupid, that’s why.

From the Supreme Court’s blog:

There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-­Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-­advanced school, a less — a slower­-track school where they do well. One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas.

They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re — that they’re being pushed ahead in — in classes that are too — too fast for them.

I don’t think it stands to reason that it is a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible.

So, you see, black college students can only succeed if they are sent to a “lesser” school where they don’t feel pressured to keep up with all the smarty smart white kids who will obviously run circles around them due to their genetically superior intellect. You know, like they did back in the whole ‘Separate but Equal’ days. Or something like that.

The University of Texas’s lawyer, Gregory Garre, pointed out that the court had already rejected Scalia’s argument in a separate case. Also, he highlighted the fact that the black students who were admitted via affirmative action compared to those based on high-school academic performance, the African-American students actually fared better over time. In short, Garre let Scalia know he was an ignorant racist.
