Friend of the Court

November 28th, 2012

Abigail Fisher should not be denied acceptance because of her racial background, even if a more diverse student population on campus is something that the university is seeking. The diversity that the University of Texas needs is more religious affiliations, economic backgrounds, and sexual orientations. The university wants the students to interact with students of different backgrounds, but that still does not permit them the right to discriminate against Abigail Fisher and deny her acceptance for being white. That is just unconstitutional.
