Associated Press via Yahoo.com:

WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites), stepping into a major affirmative action case, asserted Wednesday that a program of racial preferences for minority applicants at the University of Michigan was "fundamentally flawed" and unconstitutional.

The program "amounts to a quota system that unfairly rewards or penalizes prospective students solely on their race," Bush said in announcing that his administration would file a legal brief in the case with the Supreme Court on Thursday.

Bush said that "racial prejudice is a reality in our country" but that, in trying to fix the problem, "we must not use means that create another wrong."

The president said Americans should not be satisfied with the current numbers of minorities on college campuses.

"Our government must work to make college more affordable for students who come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and because we're committed to racial justice, we must make sure that America's public schools offer a quality education to every child from every background," Bush said.


Still hard to tell, really.
