Katuria Smith Goes to Court

'The Kids in My Hometown Expected Me To End Up in Jail'

I reminded my hosts of Justice Lewis Powell, who established in the 1978 Bakke case that race could be a factor in admissions. But he had not stopped there. Powell added that race could not be the determining factor. And, he pointed out:

"The guarantee of equal protection [of the laws] cannot mean one thing when applied to one individual and something else when applied to a person of another color."

Next week Katuria Smith tells what it's like to be a target of those who are angry that she had the temerity to charge this well-intentioned law school with discrimination against a person of the wrong color.
