Eradicating racial discrimination should be a goal of all for all in a society that bills itself as being committed to equality. Unfortunately, for far too long, “progressives” have been able to sell the notion that affirmative action, a euphemism for reverse discrimination, is acceptable as a remedy to counter discrimination suffered by people of color.

However, the Supreme Court ruled otherwise recently in deciding the fate of racial preference as a basis for admission to the University of Michigan (“Supreme Court upholds Michigan affirmative action ban,” Web, April 22). By a vote of 6-2, the court upheld Michigan’s ban on the use of race as a factor for determining college admissions. This decision sends a long-overdue message: Two wrongs do not make a right.

Perhaps now educators can get on with the job of educating, rather than social engineering.
