Balanced Scholarship And Racial Balance, Brian K. Landsberg Jan 1995

Balanced Scholarship And Racial Balance, Brian K. Landsberg

McGeorge School of Law Scholarly Articles

Professor Landsberg presents a responsive essay to Kirk Kennedy's Race-Exclusive Scholarships: Constitutional Vel Non. Professor Landsberg argues for the preservation of the Supreme Court's balanced approach to assessing the validity of affirmative action programs. Landsberg notes approvingly that the Court "has carefully avoided absolutes in deciding affirmative action cases," and criticizes Mr. Kennedy for his support of an absolute, all-or-nothing approach to race-exclusive scholarships. Landsberg argues first, that Regents of the University of California v. Bakke remains good law and that universities should not be enjoined from all race-conscious decisionmaking; second, that race-exclusive scholarships may, in narrow circumstances ...

Foreword: A New Journal Of Color In A "Colorblind" World, Frank Rudy Cooper, Jerome Mccristal Culp Jr, Lovita Tandy Jan 1995

Foreword: A New Journal Of Color In A "Colorblind" World, Frank Rudy Cooper, Jerome Mccristal Culp Jr, Lovita Tandy

Scholarly Works

In this foreword for the inaugural issue of the African-American Law & Policy Report (ALPR), Professor Frank Rudy Cooper and his colleagues present articles, which contribute to the debate that this premier issue presents: an important discussion about race that majoritarian concerns impede. The majoritarian story basically states that race is not important or race can only be examined in a "colorblind" way or that race can only be considered if we do not upset the existing power arrangements that keep African Americans and other racial groups in their place. This journal is important to ventilate those concerns because the voices ...

Professor Friedman continues the debate.


Integrating The "Underclass": Confronting America's Enduring Apartheid, Olatunde C.A. Johnson Jan 1995

Integrating The "Underclass": Confronting America's Enduring Apartheid, Olatunde C.A. Johnson

Faculty Scholarship

Douglas Massey and Nancy Denton's American Apartheid argues that housing integration has inappropriately disappeared from the national agenda and is critical to remedying the problems of the so-called "underclass." Reviewer Olati Johnson praises the authors' refusal to dichotomize race and class and the roles both play in creating and maintaining housing segregation. However, she argues, Massey and Denton fail to examine critically either the concept of the underclass or the integration ideology they espouse. Specifically, she contends, the authors fail to confront the limits of integration strategies in providing affordable housing or combating the problem of tokenism. Massey and ...

Color-Coded Standing, Girardeau A. Spann Jan 1995

Color-Coded Standing, Girardeau A. Spann

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Remarkably, the Supreme Court has held that whites who wish to challenge the constitutionality of affirmative action plans have standing to do so. In Northeastern Florida Chapter of the Associated General Contractors v. City of Jacksonville the Supreme Court upheld the standing of non-minority construction contractors to challenge a minority setaside program under the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution. What is remarkable is not that the result reached in the case was wrong, but that the Court was able to reach that result given its most recent standing precedents. In previous Terms, the Supreme Court had taken ...
