Affirming actions, fallacy of American post racial society: Policy analysis and critique of United States Supreme Court effect on Black student access to higher education. Since the inception of the country that is now known as the United States of America, the inquiry of racial equity and inclusion is one that has not been unequivocally and diligently answered. In attempt to remedy these societal burdens, the government leadership has retreated to various affirmative action policy initiatives. The affirmative action policies range from Executive Order from the President of the United States, policies in governmental contractors work sector, to university admissions policies. In turn, these policies, especially the college admissions policies, have been legally scrutinized and attenuated by the United States Supreme Court. As a result, theses policies, that were initially put in place to help Black students get equitable access to higher education, have had meager effects on creating a equitable education society. The meager effects are attributed to continuous restrictive guideline and regulations of the Supreme Court. In that vein, chronological research findings suggests that the Supreme Courts decisions have had injuriously powerful impact on Black students ability to get into an institute of higher education and subsequently find economic success. Furthermore, society’s increasing apprehension and non-understanding of the fundamental goals of affirmative action suggests that the Supreme Courts affirmative action decisions will morph from the restrictive and injurious strict scrutiny to permanent decease of any utilization of race based policy.
