Ever since the state of Michigan outlawed race-based Affirmative Action in college admissions, people have been wondering how the University of Michigan would respond. We now know. The question that remains is, how long will it be before the people responsible for the state referendum in the first place, sue? Over the past several years a number of universities have already curtailed their outreach efforts for fear of being sued. I think that the resources of folks like Ward Connerly are being stretched given their interest in fighting Affirmative Action in other states, so it might take some time. But I don’t think so. Schools like Michigan are likely the only way to either sustain or build on middle class status, and as times get tight economically the first population that people are going to look to erase are going to be black students. I expect some type of press release, or statement from either Ward Connerly or the Center of Individual Rights fairly soon.
