Project 21 Members Discuss Supreme Court’s Race Ruling on American Urban Radio

Members of the Project 21 black leadership network discussed the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action on American Urban Radio Network on 4/22/14.

In the decision, the Court upheld a Michigan state constitutional amendment banning race preferences in state matters such as government contracting and hiring as well as state school admissions.  It overturns a lower court ruling, noting that Michigan’s state constitutional amendment does not violate the U.S. Constitution’s “equal protection” clause.

Both Project 21 co-chairman Horace Cooper and member Shelby Emmett pointed out that race preferences are a tool of the past that is no longer appropriate and that the focus of reformers today should be on fixing the poorly-performing government-run schools that leave kids unprepared for higher education.
