We have been focused mostly on the war lately, but there are interesting developments on other fronts. The New York Times has an encouraging report on race discrimination in education. Two civil rights groups, the Center for Equal Opportunity and the American Civil Rights Institute, are about to file lawsuits against thirty colleges and universities to stop race discrimination in connection with various “awards and academic enrichment programs.” Some universities have already stopped discriminating in the face of threatened litigation. The Times quotes the general counsel of Iowa State University: “We have to face the fact that the direction of the courts has been very much against the consideration of race at all.”
Whether that direction continues will depend largely on what the Supreme Court does in the two cases now pending against the University of Michigan.
