The Supreme Court`s decision about the 2006 Michigan ballot initiative and subsequent case Shuette vs. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action is clearly a setback for minorities of every background and gender. Michigan is one of six states that have banned affirmative action in higher education as a result of voter referendums. The other states being Arizona, California, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Washington. The controversy resulting from the vote has been a very hot topic still on the local radio stations in Washington. With the same question going unanswered regularly.

Why is it easier for a kid from out of the state to get accepted into the major universities, than it is for a local kid with the same qualifications to get in. We may never know the real underlying reasons, because the university representatives are not talking. And the answer from the Supreme Court seems to be that the states have the right to "resolve it". Yet, this belief has a troubled past when it comes to protecting minority groups. Many doubt, given our history, that states can be trusted to "learn, to listen, and to remain open" without federal oversight. No one likes to have big brother looking over their shoulder, but sometimes unfortunately, it is needed.
