The US Supreme Court banned the use of race and ethnicity in university admissions, dealing a major blow to a decades-old practice that boosted educational opportunities for African Americans and other minorities.
President Joe Biden
strongly disagreed with the ruling, stating that universities should not abandon their commitment to create diverse student bodies.
Biden believes that discrimination still exists in America and that colleges are stronger when they are racially diverse.
The ruling was seen as a major setback for progressives.
