PDA Denounces SCOTUS Decision as Attack on Equal Rights

Jun 29, 2023 | PDA News

Progressive Democrats of America Profoundly Condemns The Supreme Court Decision Announced Today Which Held: “Harvard’s and UNC’s admissions programs violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Please Give Generously Now to Support PDA’s Efforts to Bring Balance Back to The Supreme Court, Each Month Or Just Once


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….”

The Supreme Court Is Out Of Balance

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.

    It looks like SCOTUS understands fully what keeps the doors open and the lights on at our colleges and universities. If you are an athlete you definitely get preferential access to entrance .
