I don’t follow day-to-day politics with much zest. But some are speculating that John Roberts’ tortured ruling in favor of ObamaCare may pave the way for overturning the Voting Rights Act and affirmative action. If true, what do people think about such a trade? I do wonder if the supreme court invalidating affirmative action would have any real effect on the marketplace; “diversity programs” seem to be spliced into the DNA of the modern corporation at this point. That being said, there is some suggestion that Roberts may be willing to close the era which began with Great Society whereby the white majority offers special dispensations to the black minority in light of its history of discrimination.
