Phil Henry: Minorities pay price

May 2, 2014 

Many minorities can relate to the kick-the-dog syndrome wherein they, while at the bottom of the education ladder, have gotten kicked over and over again recently by state legislators and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Of course, the voters in Michigan voted that no preferential treatment based on race be granted by the University of Michigan in admissions. The U.S. Supreme Court agreed with this change in the state constitution.

A color-blind society has been promoted by progressives for over 50 years, and we have yet to come close. What bubble do Supreme Court justices live in?

It is clear now that when people aren’t accepted by the flagship state university, or candidates don’t win because minorities are exercising their right to vote, someone needs to be punished.
