The recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court has declared affirmative action in university admissions to be in violation of the Equal Protection Clause stated in the United States Constitution, Your Content has learned.

The decision was reached with the support of all six Republican-appointed justices, with Chief Justice John Roberts leading the majority opinion.

This ruling carries significant implications as it effectively prohibits private and public universities in the United States from explicitly considering race as a factor in their admissions processes.

Many advocates of affirmative action express concerns that this change will lead to a higher education system that predominantly favors white and Asian students while excluding other minority groups.

However, the Court did mention that universities can still take into account non-race-based factors, such as socioeconomic diversity and diverse experiences.

This implies that universities are unlikely to revert to a time when they primarily catered to wealthy white students.

It is important to note that this decision overturns a landmark case in Supreme Court history, University of California v. Bakke, which previously allowed admissions systems favoring underrepresented minorities by recognizing racial diversity as a compelling public interest, according to TMZ.
