Posted April 22nd, 2014 @ 10:16am

The Supreme Court has upheld Michigan's ban on using race as a factor in college admissions.
 
  The justices said in a 6-2 ruling Tuesday that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution to prohibit public colleges and universities from taking account of race in admissions decisions.

The justices say that a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory.
