Tag: Orwellian double-speak

This one just hot off the wire!
According to today's Detroit News, The Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati effectively told Michigan Voters to go spin on it, and struck down the MCRI passed overwhelmingly by Michigan Voters back in '06 to combat institutional racism at U of M along with other state institutions.
The case stems from a lawsuit and a string of unsuccessful appeals filed by U of M students and faculty, and a group of ne'er-do-wells known as BAMN.
A copy of the 6th's decision can be read here.
No word yet from Jennifer Gratz, Leon Drolett and the others who were instrumental in getting the MCRI approved.
