Two Federal circuit judges affirmed the second-class status of white people on July 1st. (Hat tip to Dennis Mangan.) The ruling, which struck down an anti-discrimination law passed by Michigan's voters in 2006, was supported by both of the judges appointed by President Clinton and opposed by Julia Smith Gibbons, who was appointed to the appellate court by George W. Bush.
The judges made the move to explicitly allow both sexual and racial discrimination in admissions to public universities, as well as in hiring civil servants. No white males were among the judges who made this decision. (In contrast, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, passed at a time when Congress was overwhelmingly white and 97% male, explicitly forbade discrimination by race and gender.)
Cole and Daughtrey have made their move at a time when it is clear that gender discrimination will hurt only males, while racial discrimination will hurt whites and Asians. For many decades, orthodoxy in the United States has held that any support of discrimination against a group is proof of hatred of that group.
Michigan's attorney general has stated that he will appeal the ruling.
