"Affirmative action will be thrust into the spotlight next week as the Supreme Court prepares to hear two cases: Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. the University of North Carolina," The Hill wrote.
"A ruling on the two cases by the conservative court could reverse 40 years of precedent of race-conscious admissions to colleges and universities," it added.

"It's very clear to me that Harvard University was engaging in blatant discrimination. And what they were doing was they did not like the fact that Asian-Americans – if they were simply admitted based on their credentials, qualifications – would have such a huge percentage of the student body," Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Fox News.
"Harvard and the University of North Carolina have racially gerrymandered their freshman classes in order to achieve prescribed racial quotas," he added.
"Every college applicant should be judged as a unique individual, not as some representative of a racial or ethnic group," SFFA Pres Edward Blum.

The case could lead to a significant change in the students who are accepted into the two schools, as well as leading to changes at other universities.
The left won't like the consequences that may change the diversity levels at the schools, but the decision is the right one.
Students seeking to apply to a school should be accepted based on their abilities, not their race, something everyone should agree on.
