The U.S. Supreme Court will be hearing arguments in two affirmative action cases at the end of October to decide whether or not race should play a role in college admissions at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. These cases could go against past rulings that allows colleges to consider a student’s race when deciding which students should be admitted. The lawsuits were brought by the anti-affirmative action organization Students for Fair Admissions, which is hoping to reverse policies determined by another Supreme Court ruling in 2016 involving the University of Texas. In that case, the court upheld race-conscious admissions policies by a narrow 4-3 margin, but the three dissenters are now joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, all Trump appointees.
