The Supreme Court just ended affirmative action in college admissions because, according to one justice, America doesn't decide things based on the color of people's skin. This is news to many of us, but okay. Many, many people on Twitter have pointed out that white women are the ones who gained the most by affirmative action, which is true, and so probably white cis women will be the ones hurt most by overturning the practice. But don't worry! Plenty of other groups will also be hurt. Rich white cis guys have finally been returned to their supremacy.
And don't worry -- affirmative action that favors rich white guys will continue. Legacy admissions are still fine!
