The court is about to make a decision that could result in another "Landmark" case by reversing a previous decision. Historically, the court rarely reverses a decision. For example, in 1896 in the ruling for "Plessy vs. Ferguson" they ruled the doctrine "Separate but Equal" as constitutional and that opened the door to the Southern States immediately taking advantage of the loophole and implementing the racist Jim Crow laws. It took 58 years before they finally overturned it and reversed their decision in another "Landmark" case "Brown vs. the Topeka Board of Education" in 1954.;Soon another decision and possible reversal is in the making. Below is the article. Read it and then use the information below to comment with your thoughts and opinions;http://news.yahoo.com/supreme-court-to-decide-whether-affirmative-action-can-be-left-up-to-state-voters-024502165.html;Affirmative Action plans and guidelines have been a source of controversy and the subject of heated discussions regarding whether they have outlived their original intent and purpose. This concept includes many areas and one is equal pay for equal work and the "glass ceiling" addressing equality in promotions, particularly for females. A common argument by opponents is "reverse discrimination." Do you think that is a valid argument? Why or why not? Do you think Affirmative Action has outlived its purpose? Why or why not?
