The argument in the backy case And then gruder and then in uh Fisher Following that was that diversity helps Everyone It helps the white students it helps the Black students it helps the brown Students Helps the male students the female Students the rich students the poorer Students The the city students the herb the rural Students Diversity helps now I just listed I don't know what Five or ten different you know Uh factors Gender diversity Racial diversity ethnic diversity Um National diversity Socio-economic diversity Uh Geographic diversity I think we all know what that means And if you do understand what I'm Articulating Foreign You are a little bit smarter than one of The Supreme Court Justices I give you Clarence Thomas who has absolutely no Idea what diversity means I've heard the word uh diversity quite a Few times and I don't have a clue what It means Uh it seems to mean everything for Everyone

The and I'd like you first you did give Some examples in your opening remarks Like you to give us a specific Definition of diversity in the context Of the University of North Carolina and I'd also like you to give us a a clear Idea of exactly What the educational benefits of Diversity at the University of North Carolina would be Yes your honor so first we Define Diversity the way this court has in his Court's precedence which means a broadly Diverse set of criteria that extends to All different backgrounds and Perspectives and not solely limited to Race and there's a factual finding in This record pet app 113 that there are Many different diversity factors that Are considered as a greater factor in Our admissions process than race I mean imagine the the level of feigned Ignorance you must have to pretend you Don't know what diversity means in this Context yeah and also Imagine The Feigned ignorance you must have To not understand the educational Benefits of it I mean it's just a perfect example then This is this is uh you know arguably a Little bit extreme but you know Education is a nuanced thing and and It's hard to see you know on on the Level of a university level exactly what

It is but There is a an incredible disparity Between Toddlers who come from wealthy families And toddlers who come from uh a poor Families In terms of their listening vocabulary When they enter into kindergarten It's a big reason why there's Universal Pre-K and the question is why And It is quite settled as to why that is The case it is because lovely people Expose their children Because of their money to a wide variety Of experiences And people They go on trips They live in the city they go to the Country If they live in a country they go to the City They go to different places they see Different things There are some kids you know Kids who are living in in poverty who Live in the city They don't know what a llama is Well they see a llama They're like they can't pick out a goat They can pick out a dog or a cat Maybe They might have more familiarity with a Rat if you live in New York City than You would like uh you know what a sheep

Looks like Well you're a wealthy kid you're going On a trip to the farm You're a wealthy kid you're gonna you Maybe you fly in an airplane but if you Go to a foreign country maybe you hear a Foreign language uh you know uh maybe You see different cuisines It is so self-evident As to why Surrounding yourself with diverse Viewpoints and perspectives and Life Experiences Is more of an educational benefit than Not that it's almost absurd to even Braise this like it's It is like it you honestly have to be Generating Like the ignorance yeah he's it's right like he like the idea That it means everything to anybody what The hell is it I don't even know what What that means but defined by the court Like the this is pedantry right like the Communication only works when you can Share terminology and the reaction is You see what Jordan Peterson too like What does this word mean we can't even Know anything that's just a refuge of a Reaction here that doesn't actually want A conversation to go anywhere yep yeah And I mean this is also the the the role That he wants to play on the Supreme Court is to be the black voice on the

Court saying these kinds of things he uh Not to psychoanalyze him as as well but You know he also probably tries to Adhere to a anti-diverse Anti-anti-racist ideology because then It completely validates him as one of The nine most deserving of all of the Judges that could ever Ascend the throne That's how these like people who treat Themselves like priests themselves as Well I I I have I I would be terrified to take A half a step into the psychology uh That is going on in his mind but um But nevertheless the idea that is know What diversity is is uh hard to believe Either colloquially or in the fact that It's been Literally defined in All the precedents on which this case is Going to overturn I'm uh I need to watch This clip uh but I'm founded on C-Span Justice Thomas on the court and Intellectual diversity oh so so maybe We'll what the hell does that mean what Does it mean what does he mean by that Uh what he means is we need to Gerrymander uh uh spaces so that Conservatives have an equal sign right Exactly I mean and uh uh there's Chicago Steve has to be depressing to Argue a case before this court no matter What you write or say the outcome was Predetermined of course of course

Without a doubt I feel like that's the That's like as important of a mission is To make sure that that's broadly Understood by like people going into law That like this is all fake oh yeah I Mean but that how many times have we had People on the like you know Ian Millheiser wrote that book what was it Eight years ago six years ago I mean We've had I mean it's it's been out There it's just I think like it is Becoming more and more I mean really It's not even the lay people although The lay people are going to cause the Pressure on the institutions but it's Going to be hard because And as children of lawyers I think we Understand this This is like This is a religion to them yes and they Are the priesthood And they're finding out that wait a Second The pope is known about this scandal Uh Uh this is where we're at yeah right now The Supreme Court justices have no Clothes exactly exactly There's not a single legal like like a Constitutional doctrine that they're Arguing in you know you read this Transcript I'm sure maybe somebody else Can find it but it it is This case rests on their assessment that

Racism is not a problem anymore that It's 2028 even if you could have put a Number on it at that time I mean Sandra Day O'Connor like she knew racism Boy and she was going to give you a Timeline on when racism goes away It would have been great if she was Correct or even remotely correct Um Yeah and then it's just uh I also just want to put this out there Too they are attempting to and when they Eventually side with uh Overturning affirmative action they are Attempting to censor these uh Institutions and prevent them from uh Doing the practices as they see fit Right they should be able to engage in I Mean I'm just using their own argument Against them but this is like a freedom Of contract or a freedom of you know Corporate decision-making argument that You can make against them but well That's the thing is that you would think That they are they're required to say That what they're doing is a violation Of the 14th Amendment but they're not Making the argument on those grounds Um but I guess we'll we'll see what the Decision is we will we will we will have A legal expert on to talk about this More I think probably Uh maybe between now and June when they Come out with this decision uh but um at

Least once Uh you know the the It is increasingly it's as as much as I Am interested in the in in the sort of The legal arguments and the breakdowns Of this increasingly Um It is uh it's harder to retain my Interest in it Um because it is So over but I do think that there is Value in laying it out and showing how Much they are avoiding what they what What these five or six Uh five or six depending on the case Contend is their Judicial approach their philosophy in Terms of the way that they resolve these Cases and and because I think like Showing you know It's clear they have no clothes but Examining some of the birthmarks on Their body and liver spots and their Liver spots and uh their pubes on a Coke Can as it were yikes uh all uh part of The project here Um like you honestly have to be Generating Like the ignorance yeah he's it's right like he like the idea That it means everything to anybody what The hell is it I don't even know what What that meant it's been defined by the Court like this is pedantry right like

The communication only works when you Can share terminology and the reaction Is you see what Jordan Peterson too like What does this word mean we can't even Know anything that's just a refuge of a Reaction here that doesn't actually want A conversation to go anywhere yep yeah And I mean this is also the the the role That he wants to play on the Supreme Court is to be the black voice on the Court saying these kinds of things he uh Not to psychoanalyze him as as well but You know he also probably tries to Adhere to a anti-diverse Anti-anti-racist ideology because then It completely validates him as one of The nine most deserving of all of the Judges that could ever Ascend the throne That's how these like people who treat Themselves like priests who themselves As well I I I have I I would be terrified to take A half a step into the psychology that Is going on in his mind but um But nevertheless the idea that is know What diversity is is uh hard to believe Either Colloquially or in the fact that it's Been Literally defined in All the precedents on which this case is Going to overturn I'm uh I need to watch This clip but I'm founded on C-Span Justice Thomas on the court and

Intellectual diversity Oh so maybe what the hell does that mean What does it mean what does he mean by That uh what he means is we need to Gerrymander uh uh spaces so that Conservatives have an equal sign right Exactly I mean and uh uh there's Chicago Steve has to be depressing to Argue a case before this court no matter What you write or say the outcome was Predetermined of course of course Without a doubt I feel like that's the That's like as important of a mission is To make sure that that's broadly Understood by like people going into law That like this is all fake oh yeah I Mean but the the how many times have we Had people on the like you know Ian Millheiser wrote that book what was it Eight years ago six years ago I mean We've had Mo I mean it's it's been out There it's just I think like it is Becoming more and more I mean really It's not even the lay people although The lay people are going to cause the Pressure on the institutions but it's Gonna be hard because And as children of lawyers I think we Understand this this is like This is a religion to them yes and they Are the priesthood And they're finding out that wait a Second The pope is known about this scandal

Uh Uh this is where we're at yeah right now The Supreme Court justices have no Clothes exactly exactly There's not a single legal like like a Constitutional doctrine that they're Arguing in you know you read this Transcript I'm sure maybe somebody else Can find it but it it is This case rests on their assessment that Racism is not a problem anymore that It's 2028 even if you could have put a Number on it at that time I mean Sandra Day O'Connor like she knew racism Boy and she was gonna give you a Timeline on when racism goes away It would have been great if she was Correct or even remotely correct Um Yeah and then it's just uh I also just want to put this out there Too they are attempting to and when they Eventually side with uh Overturning affirmative action they are Attempting to censor these uh Institutions and prevent them from uh Doing their the practices as they see Fit right they should be able to engage In I mean I'm just using their own Argument against them but this is like a Freedom of contract or freedom of you Know corporate decision-making argument That you can make against them but well That's the thing is that you would think

That they are they're required to say That what they're doing is a violation Of the 14th Amendment but they're not Making the argument on those grounds Um but I guess we'll we'll see what the Decision is we will we will we will have A legal expert on to talk about this More I think probably Uh maybe between now and June when they Come out with this decision uh but um at Least once Uh you know the the It is increasingly as as much as I am Interested in the in in the sort of the Legal arguments and the breakdowns of This increasingly Um It is uh it's harder to retain my Interest in it Um because it is So over but I do think that there is Value in laying it out and showing how Much they are avoiding what they what What these five or six Uh five or six depending on the case Contend is their Judicial approach their philosophy in Terms of the way that they resolve these Cases and and because I think like Showing you know It's clear they have no clothes but Examining some of the birthmarks on Their body and liver spots and their Liver spots and uh their pubes on a Coke
