Supreme Court to tackle case of racial preferences admissions at UT
AUSTIN, Texas. -- The U.S. Supreme Court will tackle some arguments on the issue of using racial preferences in college admissions.
The case at issue was brought by a white woman who claims the University of Texas chose not to admit her because of her race.
Abigail Fisher claims such a move violates the constitution's equal protection guarantee, but the university said that using race as a factor in admissions is the only way to keep the student body diverse.
Nine years ago, the Supreme Court ruled to approve such policies.
