Race discrimination is a good thing... Today's example: Latino Groups Urge Bush To Back Affirmative Action:

A coalition of the nation's most influential Latino organizations voiced strong support for affirmative action in higher education yesterday, and sent a letter to President Bush asking him to endorse it in the days leading up to its review at the Supreme Court.

The letter was released at a news conference where representatives of 12 groups took turns expressing concern that Latino youngsters will be deprived of an education at the colleges of their choice if the court overturns affirmative action when it rules on two legal challenges to race-based preferences at the University of Michigan....

I'm hoping that Bush's decision to renominate Judge Pickering despite the smears against his reputation is a signal that he'll have the guts to file a friend-of-the-court brief in favor of overturning Michigan's discriminatory admissions policy. But he may not want to tackle so much at once.

Among the groups present yesterday were the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Cuban American National Council and the National Council of La Raza.

The last translates as "The Race." So much for e pluribus unum. Permanently fragmented idenities, separate allegiances and a dysfunctional society are our future if we don't get this one right.
