The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a second case on the use of affirmative action, announcing Monday that it will examine Michigan’s ban on racial considerations in college admissions and professional hiring.
The court is currently hearing a case filed against the University of Texas for discrimination against whites in admissions.
In 2006, Michigan residents voted by a margin of 58 to 42 percent to ban the use of race in considerations for public university admissions and government hiring. (Atlanta Black Star)
