    The U.S. Supreme Court upheld Thursday the University of Texas at Austin’s plan to increase student diversity, defeating a conservative challenge that sought to imperil affirmative-action programs in higher education.

    That's very true. Hey...take the gains where you can get them.

    New immigration policies would have been implemented today if the Senate had confirmed President Obama's nominee to replace Scalia.

    So close...and yet so far.

    When the new guy is appointed, I think many of these type cases will disappear. I think the chief justice has an agenda

    Either way, the U.S. Supreme Court will be a lot less conservative than it once was.

    Just think about it. If President Obama's nominee had been confirmed, Immigration reform along with a lot of other major changes to this country would have occurred under President Obama's administration.

    He may not have done great things for Black people...but overall...he made some major changes to this country. He really is a reformative president.

    I don't disagree, Money. Let's just "hope"...what President Obama isn't able to do in these next few months, Hillary, if she's smart and can attract the majority of Sander's followers, will have the chance.

    President Obama may not be the "savior" that so many Black people hoped and many thought he would be, but he deserves more credit than what he is receiving. Not saying he did everything in the best interest of Black people, but some of his political strategies have benefited us. He'll probably be long dead before people see the change that has helped much of us got started under his administration. We're probably more critical of him than say, Reagan and the Bushes because we never expected them to do anything to help Black people, and we weren't disappointed.
