Re: Goodwin Liu on Racial Quotas Forever

With generous praise for my exposition of Ninth Circuit nominee Goodwin Liu’s extreme support for racial quotas in perpetuity, John Rosenberg highlights on his Discriminations blog the contradiction between what he calls President Obama’s “promised land of post-racialism” and the hard-Left racialism of Liu (and of Obama’s civil-rights appointees).  Rosenberg reposts his critique of a 2006 op-ed by Liu that argued against a “colorblind” reading of Brown v. Board of Education and that, in so doing, treated a failure to pursue racial balancing, or quotas, in schools as a form of “racial apartheid.”  Rosenberg also reposts some fun that he had revising America’s foundational documents to reflect Liu’s racialism.
