The Ricci Case
I really feel for those who were screwed by obvious reverse discrimination. I simply cannot believe that four Supreme Court justices could be so blinded by racial politics that they could not see the real discrimnation taking place against those who passed a valid test. News flash to them – WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT. This shows that while we will never be free of some vestiges of racial bias (from all sides) that anything is possible with hard work and perserverence. While many are encouraged by the rise of President Obama, apparently too many people are dismayed by it, as it limits their ability to play the race card at will. Obama marks the beginning of the end for the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton types in America. Race baiters cannot expect judicial fiat to change everyone to their line of thinking. And fair is fair – Ricci was screwed out of a promotion for the sake of racial politics. I’m glad five justices saw fit to say just that.
