Atlanta, GA — Women Watch Afrika (WWA) condemns the Supreme Court ruling against race-conscious admissions policies.
Today the U.S. Supreme Court struck down race-conscious student admissions program policies currently used at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina.
Women Watch Afrika is disappointed and firmly disagrees with this US Supreme Court decision striking down race-conscious admissions policies.
Glory Kilanko, Founder and CEO, Women Watch Afrika, states: The ruling is not surprising because the fact is, the composition of the Supreme Court speaks volumes, centuries after the emancipation proclamation. Women Watch Afrika will continue to advocate for policies that redress and remedy racial inequity and exclusion.
Preye Cobham, Esq. Attorney and Legal Director, states: There are some individuals so disassociated from the reality that racism still exists and the resulting consequences of centuries of racist discrimination are still in play in this day and age. Affirmative Action admission policies are a way to address the number of Black, Hispanic, and other underrepresented minority groups on campuses. Yet the Supreme Court has now removed this manner of redress from these schools.
Women Watch Afrika reaffirms that until the philosophy that holds one race superior and another inferior ends, America will not be deemed civilized.
