Is Supreme Court set to end use of race in admissions?

Is Supreme Court set to end use of race in admissions?

Quote:
Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday is set to hear arguments on whether colleges and universities can continue to favor minority candidates in admissions policies. Given that the court in 2003 approved such policies, its decision to take up the issue again suggests it may be looking to cut back on affirmative action.

The case before the court was brought by Abigail Fisher, a white woman who says the University of Texas denied her admission because of her race, in violation of the U.S. Constitution's equal protection guarantee. The university says it must consider race as a factor in admissions, or minorities will be underrepresented on its campuses.
Affirmative action on the block or at least one arm of it.... but as Johnny sang, "Got it One piece at a Time".

Wonder if Al, Jessie and 'shell will be marching on the court.
