Senate Democratic leader Reid: Scalia used 'racist' rhetoric

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid on Thursday blasted Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for uttering what he called "racist ideas" from the bench of the nation's highest court.

Scalia on Wednesday suggested it's possible that some black students would benefit from being at a "slower-track school" instead of the University of Texas' flagship campus in Austin, where Scalia suggested some of those students are "being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them." Scalia made the comment while the court heard arguments in an affirmative action case.

"The idea that African-American students are somehow inherently intellectually inferior from other students is despicable," Reid said on the Senate floor. "It's a throwback ... to a time that America left behind a half a century ago."

----------------------------------------

In making his remarks, Scalia said he was referring to research showing that minority students admitted to competitive universities through affirmative action can often struggle to succeed if they don't have top academics. This "mismatch" theory holds that minorities would be better off at less academically rigorous schools.

5. The word "racist" has been thrown around so much lately that it has become virtually meaningless.

And that gives true racists a big opening. What good does it do to properly call out somebody who really is a racist when the term itself has become meaningless?
