Quotes-start.png "A fairer reading of the decision [...] would place the latest ruling squarely in the line of the 1978 Bakke decision and the 2003 Gratz vs. Bollinger decision. Both cases limited the use of race in college admissions policies but did not ban it outright. As such, both rulings fell within the philosophy of The Denver Post, which has long believed race can be considered as one factor aimed at producing a diverse and productive learning environment but not be the only factor."
