This Note examines the arguments made in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard College, which allege that Harvard’s consideration of race is a violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because it is not narrowly tailored to a compelling interest of diversity. The complaint filed by Students for Fair Admissions (“SFFA”) came off the back of Justice Alito’s comments in his dissent in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin (Fisher II), which proposed the possibility that Asian Americans may face discrimination in admissions. While this was an important inclusion of Asian Americans in the discussion, Justice Alito’s comments in Fisher II perpetuated the logical fallacy that Asian Americans are losing admission spots to African Americans and Hispanic Americans due to affirmative action, and may have encouraged the initiation of SFFA’s action against Harvard College. However, while the frustration experienced by many in the Asian American community over what feels like racial ceilings on Asian American admissions at elite universities is valid, these ceilings are the result of negative action aimed against Asian Americans, not the result of affirmative action. Prohibiting universities from considering race as part of a holistic admissions process will not eliminate the negative action felt by Asian Americans.
Fathers Rights Lawyers
Our fathers rights lawyers have served fathers in the Southern California area for well over 10 years. In our experience while some fathers in divorce cases worry about property division and other material concerns, most are primarily concerned about maintaining access to their children. This is in their best interests. Unless there is a history of abuse, nothing can deny a father a right to visitation with his child.
When it comes to parents and children, parents have the legal right to have a relationship with their kids. Often times, this right in enforced by state laws, and these laws see that both mothers and fathers have an equal chance at a relationship with their children. State laws in California have also been put in place so that the court system or other government agencies are not allowed to interfere in a parent/child relationship unless absolutely necessary to protect the child. When it comes to California father’s rights or child custody cases, California family law courts use the “best interests of the child” standard.
