The Temptation of Opacity : The American Judge

In the United States, positive discrimination (affirmative action) refers
to a set of measures that grant preferential treatment in the allocation
of jobs, public contracts and enrolment in selective universities to
members of groups having been submitted to a system of legal discrimination
in the past (Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians,
Women). As regards higher education, in a paradoxical way, the
constitutionality of the measures depends today on their implicit
nature. Indeed, a survey of the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court
indicates an attempt to dissimulate the degree to which the racial factor
is taken into account in order to guarantee the judicial validity of affirmative
action.
