Justice O'Connor's Grutter Countdown Is Ticking Away: Only 19 Years till the end of racial preferences!

October 6th, 2009

After making a countdown to the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, I recalled Justice O’Connor’s prediction in Grutter:

“We expect that 25 years from now, the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.”

Well, Grutter was issued on June 23, 2003. So the countdown till June 23, 2028 is already ticking! Only 19 years to go!
