Anyway, what site are you quoting where the case has not yet gone to trial? Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger, concerning the University of Michigan program, were both decided in 2003. The undergraduate school lost and the law school one.
This is the page I was quoting:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows...

I'll find other sources.

If I do, will you get back on topic?

Yeah. This source is accurate so far as it goes but it's dated. Nothing past 1998. It does, however, correctly site Bakke as standing for the proposition that "schools could no longer use racial quotas, though it left open the practice of considering race in admissions to promote diversity". The cases cited afterwards do not concern quotas but other forms of racial preferences. At present, quotas and point systems that award points for race are unconstitutional while "individualized consideration" including race as a factor is considered constitutional, as are a few other attempts to find loopholes in the Court's decisions.

To me, the Fourteenth Amendment is pretty clear that no racial preferences should be allowed in public schools and universities. But it's not accurate to say quota systems are still allowed.

Find whatever sources you want. Here are the actual, relevant Supreme Court decisions.

I don't really have anything to say about who appears in ads.

Ah. I guess we're done then.

If you'd like, I could have an extreme emotional reaction to your posts and yell at you a lot. You seem to enjoy that.

Sure, it's a kick sometimes.

I mean, not only is it only Topix, it's AA Topix.

I've never taken this place seriously. That seems to upset some people.

I don't get it.

I know Topix is a joke. It just amuses me to play it straight most of the time.
