The Fisher case (on which we have written in the past) involves what some describe as ‘affirmative action’ in admissions policy at the University of Texas at Austin, but by everyone’s description is the application of differing standards depending on one’s skin color. The topic made a stir again in social media after Supreme Court Justice Scalia spoke plainly about this when the case was heard recently.

Dr. Thomas Sowell elaborates on Scalia’s point, with one article on college admissions practices being challenged and a second article on the deleterious effects of these admissions practices, showing they do not in fact give us ‘equal protection under the laws’.
