  • "Equality Requires Effort"

    So said Judge Sotomaytor in response to a question by Sen. Kohl on racial discrimination and diversity.

    But what about Chief Justice Roberts’s elegant statement to the contrary on  racial relations and equality? “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”

    What kind of “effort” matters, too. Does she mean still more state-sanctioned or -required discrimination? That’s a question to which the Senate must demand a response.
