Here’s How Harvard Plans to Get Around Ruling, Thumb Its Nose at SCOTUS

Harvard University, home to one of the most famous law schools in the world, wasted no time devising a plan to circumvent the Supreme Court’s ruling to end the racist practice of allowing affirmative action to determine who gains entry to its hallowed halls.

As previously reported, in a 6-3 decision, the highest court in the land ruled that affirmative action as a means of selecting which students are allowed to attend American colleges is a violation of the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause, sparking immediate backlash from liberals who don’t really care if academically superior Asians are being disproportionately discriminated against.

“Eliminating racial discrimination means eliminating all of it,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the court’s opinion. “The student must be treated based on his or her experiences as an individual—not on the basis of race. Many universities have for too long done just the opposite.”

And according to TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk, they’re going to keep on doing the opposite, “by exploiting a specific weak spot in Robert’s (sic) majority decision.”

“Because Harvard’s and UNC’s admissions programs lack sufficiently focused and measurable objectives warranting the use of race, unavoidably employ race in a negative manner, involve racial stereotyping, and lack meaningful end points, those admissions programs cannot be reconciled with the guarantees of the Equal Protection Clause,” Justice Roberts wrote. “At the same time, nothing prohibits universities from considering an applicant’s discussion of how race affected the applicant’s life, so long as that discussion is concretely tied to a quality of character or unique ability that the particular applicant can contribute to the university.”

In a statement released shortly after the Thursday ruling, Harvard seized upon that “weak spot.”

“Today, the Supreme Court delivered its decision in Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College. The Court held that Harvard College’s admissions system does not comply with the principles of the equal protection clause embodied in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act,” the university wrote. “The Court also ruled that colleges and universities may consider in admissions decisions ‘an applicant’s discussion of how race affected his or her life, be it through discrimination, inspiration, or otherwise.’”

“We will certainly comply with the Court’s decision,” the Ivy League institution vowed.

“In other words,” tweeted Kirk, “Harvard will use college essays to continue its racial discrimination regime.”

On Twitter, the university’s cagey wording was met with fury.

“Harvard has no intention of complying with today’s SCOTUS ruling. This basically thumbs their nose at the United States,” stated one user. “They should be closed.”
