    Young America's Foundation applauds the United States Supreme Court on their ruling in favor of further inspection of race-based admissions. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the 7-1 decision, which calls into question the continued use of racial preferences in college admissions.

    Although the ruling was a step in the right direction, the Foundation agrees with Justice Thomas's concurrence and believes that the issues should have been resolved once and for all.  It is a disappointment that students will continue to concern themselves with racial preferences while applying for college. 

    College admissions should be based on achievements and merit-not skin color. Students who choose to pursue higher education deserve their applications to be considered equally according to their academic achievements. Racial preferences discourage students from working hard and may even deny students from pursuing their college dreams.

    Big government liberals have been using "affirmative action" as an opportunity to discriminate by race. They do so without regards to the graduation rates of students they purport to help. Racial preferences also divide students from other backgrounds in liberal's race-based caste system. 

    Four years ago, Chief Justice John Roberts stated, "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race." That makes good sense today!

    Abigail Fisher should not have been denied admittance to the University of Texas due to racial preferences. Young America's Foundation believes any consideration of race in college admissions violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
