"The charming assumption of the plaintiffs in Fisher v. University of Texas -- a case the Supreme Court recently agreed to hear -- is that if five robed justices behind mahogany desks tell universities to stop discriminating by race in their admissions policies, universities will stop. (Fisher involves a white female student allegedly passed over for admission in favor of less-qualified minority candidates.) Yet regardless of what the justices say, university officials will give up their firstborns before they let go of their beloved racial preferences." (03/13/12)
