Trunk, my reaction to your “friends of racism” post is that, as with most Washington Post news stories, the essence of the matter is buried in the back paragraphs. As noted therein, “there is little cost in terms of public image for companies that side with Michigan — and potentially large costs for those perceived as indifferent to the interests of minorities.” Many of these companies have been sued and otherwise attacked for discrimination and have paid large settlements to escape. They did so either because they were guilty of racial discrimination or were unwilling, for economic reasons, to defend fair employment practices. In either event, there is no reason why the Supreme Court should be particularly interested in their views on matters of principle.
