Big SCOTUS rulings today: Ending race for college admission & employer accommodation for religious practice – Pratt on Texas 6/29/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Two U.S. Supreme Court ruling today are of importance. The ban on using race for college admissions is a long sought after stop to today’s Democrat and Leftist backed reverse discrimination to try and somehow settle the score for past injustices (mostly created and enforced oddly enough by the Democratic Party in this country.) The ruling matters and will affect UT-Austin, Rice, SMU, and others shat have openly been using a racist admissions policy. Sherry Sylvester of the TPPF joins us to talk how this ruling relates to our fight to get D.E.I. and similar off of our public university campuses. (Update: Univ. of Houston’s law school was discriminating based on race.)

The second ruling, Groff v. DeJoy, is even more important for Americans of faith and will affect all employers with 15 or more employees. This religious accommodation ruling rights a bad error in 1977 that gutted much workplace protection of people of faith. First Liberty and others did great work in this case.
