The Supreme Court's conservative majority appeared to look favorably on Michigan's voter-approved law that bans use of racial criteria in college admissions.

The justices are being asked to decide the constitutionality of a 2006 referendum that prohibits race- and sex-based discrimination or preferential treatment in public university admission decisions. That ban was written into the state's constitution.

"You could say that the whole point of something like the Equal Protection Clause is to take race off the table," said Chief Justice John Roberts. "Is it unreasonable for the state to say, race is a lightning rod?"

The law was passed seven years ago with support of 58% of voters. It was added to the state's constitution, and bars publicly funded colleges from granting "preferential treatment to any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin."

I'm guessing Desh won't be screaming "majority rules" in this case"...:rolleyes:
