Kinloch School District, small and all-black, adjoins the predominantly white Berkeley and Ferguson-Florissant School Districts in St. Louis County, Missouri. Kinloch and Berkeley had comprised one district until 1937, when they split along racial lines. In 1971 the United States, pursuant to Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the fourteenth amendment, commenced a school desegregation action against the State of Missouri, the State and county boards of education, the three school districts, and several public officials. The district court concluded that all the defendants had unlawfully maintained Kinloch as a racially segregated school district. After reviewing ...


Illusion And Contradiction In The Quest For A Desegregated Metropolis, Henry Mcgee Jan 1976

Illusion And Contradiction In The Quest For A Desegregated Metropolis, Henry Mcgee

Faculty Scholarship

A decade of litigation in which the central issue of discrimination essentially was uncontested thus far has failed to disestablish racial segregation or produce desperately needed low-income housing for Chicago blacks. Recently, the unconcluded litigation has produced a unanimous United States Supreme Court decision exposing suburban racial sanctuaries to the possibility of integrated public housing units. Although the first-named plaintiff in the suit, Dorothy Gautreaux, did not survive the decision, the extent of her posthumous triumph is the central theme of this article. Although Gautreaux superficially indicates that a federal judge has the power to desegregate federally subsidized housing and ...

Preferences In Public Employment, Robert Vaughn Jan 1976

Preferences In Public Employment, Robert Vaughn

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

INTRODUCTION: Open and competitive examination is generally perceived as the surest method of ensuring that public employees are selected on the basis of their merit and ability. Since the Pendleton Act of 1883, legislation has continually attempted to implement the view that efficient and impartial public sector employment requires that qualifications be demonstrated in an objective examination. But blacks, women and other minorities have been systematically excluded from public employment. This exclusion has resulted not only from bias in the examination, but also from other less visible aspects of the appointment process which supplant strict merit selection.

Power(Lessness) And Dispersion: Comments On Chester Mcguire's The Urban Development Act Of 1974, Community Development Funds And Black Economic Problems, Henry Mcgee

Faculty Scholarship

Professor McGee discusses Chester McGuire's comprehensive, provocative and good-humored assessment of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (HCDA). McGuire suggests both ominous and benign trends in the shift of political power and allocation of material resources in the United States. In analyzing the McGuire’s assessment of the HCDA, Professor McGee addresses how the act affects minority groups, particularly Black Americans.


Affirmative Action: Hypocritical Euphemism Or Noble Mandate?, Theodore J. St. Antoine Jan 1976

Affirmative Action: Hypocritical Euphemism Or Noble Mandate?, Theodore J. St. Antoine

Articles

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was adopted in an atmosphere of monumental naivete. Congress apparently believed that equal employment opportunity could be achieved simply by forbidding employers or unions to "discriminate" on the basis of "race, color, religion, sex, or national origin," and expressly disavowed any intention to require "preferential treatment." Perhaps animated by the Supreme Court's stirring desegregation decisions of the 1950's, the proponents of civil rights legislation made "color-blindness" the rallying cry of the hour. Today we know better. The dreary statistics, so familiar to anyone who works in this field, tell ...


Book Review Of Disaster By Decree, Charles F. Abernathy Jan 1976

Book Review Of Disaster By Decree, Charles F. Abernathy

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

In Disaster by Decree, and beginning with Brown v. Board of Education, Professor Graglia traces national efforts at school desegregation, constantly pricking the Court's egalitarian balloon with his needle of logic. How can the 1954 Brown decision, he asks, which forbade consideration of race in school assignments, justify current relief decrees that require courts and school boards to consider race? This attack indeed may catch affirmative action proponents at their Achilles' heel, for preferential admissions programs, if not actually spawned by admiration of the courts' desegregation efforts, draw constitutional strength from the courts' own repeated assumption of the power ...
