Sarcasm, of course— but barely.

Boston University School of Law students are being urged by the Student Government Association (SGA) to seek therapy in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decisions, which included the conservative-majority decisions to strike down race-based admission policies and Joe Biden’s unconstitutional student debt “forgiveness” (transfer) scam.

Incidentally, that’s SCOTUS Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson in the feature image, speaking at BU earlier this year.

The SGA sent a scathing email to students blasting the SCOTUS decisions, Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard (the race-based admissions case), Biden v. Nebraska (Biden’s student loan transfer scam), and 303 Creative LLC. v. Elenis (upholding the right of a website designer to refuse to endorse same-sex marriages in her work if the state demanded it).

The SGA email, obtained by Fox Digital, reads in part:

[The assenting judges] went so far as to say that the race-based admission system uses race as a negative and operates it as a stereotype, They may couch their opinion in legal jargon, but we all know what this opinion aims to do: advocate for a ‘colorblind’ admission process.

“Uses race as a negative and operates it as a stereotype.” Yeah, no. Justices John Robert, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett said no such thing— not even close.

The email continues (emphasis, mine):

However, as many of our students know and Justice Sotomayor says in her dissent, ‘ignoring race will not equalize a society that is racially unequal.

These three decisions form part of a lengthy sequence of this court’s ruling which steadily erode the rights of marginalized communities and undermine the very diversity upon which our nation was built,

As a reminder, BU also offers a number of wellness resources that are willing and able to help students navigate these times.

Not to be insensitive to the “wellness resources” thing, but, oh— boo-hoo. Get a grip, people, real life happens.

As for Sotomayor’s observation, it was not only wrong; it was also ridiculous. Not “ignoring race” is racist by definition. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so eloquently said:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Moreover, Sotomayor’s reference to “equalizing a society that is racially unequal” was nothing more than unclever code words used to promote so-called equity vs. equality.

Austrian-American economist F.A. Hayek nailed it when he famously observed:

There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal.

Bingo. The leftists twist themselves into illogical pretzels as they desperately try to convince us otherwise but never forget: From the radical left-wing puppeteers who pull our marionette presidents’ strings to the liberal media to the no-longer-hallowed halls of academia, these people know exactly what they’re doing and exactly why they’re doing it.

(Hint: Barack Obama’s intentional politics of racial division, with a keen eye on the ballot box.)
