The Supreme Court heard a retread of the landmark affirmative action case Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin yesterday. The whole court’s view is still unclear, but folks are really not happy with Justice Scalia’s take on it.
At one time, a majority of people in the U.S.–a full 61 percent–supported affirmative action. That day is long gone. Today, support for affirmative action is at record lows, with just 45 percent of people in the U.S. saying that such programs are necessary today, according to a new poll conducted by NBC.
