Is Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream Unconstitutional?

Disregarding race is the new “racism”: that is the position of the modern Left. Which raises the question: is it unconstitutional for American governments to treat members of all races equally? If you think that is an absurd question, you haven’t been paying attention.

Via InstaPundit, this observation from Nick Rosenkranz at the Volokh Conspiracy:

Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke these immortal words: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” He would have been mystified, one imagines, by the question presented in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action: “Whether a state violates the Equal Protection Clause by amending its constitution to prohibit race- and sex-based discrimination or preferential treatment in public-university admissions decisions.”

Further comment is, really, unnecessary. Except, perhaps, to note that if liberals get their way, we are living in a country that has no future.
