We agree with Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in which she wrote that this decision: “rolls back decades of precedent and momentous progress [and] cements a superficial rule of colorblindness as a constitutional principle in an endemically segregated society where race has always mattered and continues to matter….”
We find Justice Sotomayor’s analysis accurate, and if anything too polite. We consider this decision just the latest in a premeditated effort to reverse hard won progress towards equal protection by imposing invidious, racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, and other bigoted discrimination upon our diverse population.
In other words, this decision hypocritically reverses the intent of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment—the principle the majority relied upon in delivering this blow against inclusiveness. We at PDA decry this latest right wing assertion of White Male Cis Het Supremacy.
