Obama and Racial Preferences


In this Daily Caller piece, Charles Johnson digs deep and finds that Obama’s support for racial preferences — most recently manifested in the amicus brief his administration filed in Fisher v. University of Texas — has roots in the beginning of his political career. For example, as a state senator, he actively opposed the Center for Equal Opportunity’s efforts to get admissions data from Illinois public universities. Congratulations to Mr. Johnson on some fine detective work.
