Supreme Court expected to overturn race-based admissions in colleges

Leaders seeking an end to affirmative action in college admissions believe the Supreme Court will overturn the precedent after oral arguments on Monday.

Students For Fair Admissions President Edward Blum shared an interview with The Daily Wire on Monday that shared his view that the race-based action may soon end.

The case

"Students for Fair Admissions, a legal advocacy group which opposes granting applicants an advantage because of their racial identity, has filed complaints against both Harvard University and the University of North Carolina for 'employing racially and ethnically discriminatory policies and procedures' when accepting students," The Daily Wire reported.

"The lawsuit against Harvard argued that Asian American students require significantly higher standardized test scores than their peers to gain admission to elite schools," it added.

A prime example

"High school and college students shared how they had been negatively affected by affirmative action policies in their schools," Fox News reported.

"But one anti-affirmative action 'hactivist,' Vijay Jojo Chokal Ingam, received vast media attention in 2015 when he claimed he had used these practices to his advantage by pretending to be Black 20 years ago to gain entrance into an elite medical school, despite holding a lower GPA than the average incoming student," it added.

Supporters of affirmative action argue that the process remains important to diversity for colleges.

However, those harmed included Asian Americans, who represent a diverse group that is important to higher education.

The case will soon receive a ruling, with many expecting the decision to change how some schools handle college admissions.
