ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Supreme Court is delaying an affirmative action challenge by a white student who was denied admission to the University of Texas (“Supreme Court to rule on race in college admissions,” Web, Tuesday).

It seems that this raging issue has been put on the back burner. Apparently, the liberals have enough other things to complain about.

Affirmative action steals one group’s rights and gives them to another group for no other reason than a distorted sense of justice. It is totalitarianism as applied to soppy matters of the heart; the czar is the ideology of the current political ethos. Correctness sits on the throne.

Affirmative action affirms nothing except stealing from the deserving to give to the sometimes unaccomplished in order to bestow what has not been earned. It affirms weakness, ratifies theft and vitiates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s credo that the content of your character should be more important than the color of your skin.
