Him Again. George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia plans to rename their law school after the late Antonin “racial entitlement” Scalia according to a report in the The Wall Street Journal. Scalia died in February.
The University’s board of directors and an agency in Virginia must approve the change before the name change is final. Scalia was known for bloviating arrogantly and on race, affirmative action and voting rights.
Then there was this gem from the bench on affirmative action:
“There are – there are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a less – a slower-track school where they do well.“One of – one of the briefs pointed out that – that most of the – most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re – that they’re being pushed ahead in – in classes that are too too fast for them.”
Millions in donations are riding on the name change including a $10 million donation from the Charles Koch Foundation.
