(CAMPUS REFORM) -- A law professor and scholar at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin co-wrote an article on Tuesday insisting that then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - now Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh - should not be confirmed due to his opposition to affirmative action.
UT law lecturer Shavonne Henderson and UT Juris Doctorate postgraduate fellow Martin Kamp penned the op-ed, titled "Kavanaugh Could Undermine Diversity on College Campuses” and published the piece on the University of Texas at Austin’s official news site.

“The Supreme Court’s longstanding position has been that colleges and universities have a compelling interest in diversity and may consider race among many factors when assessing qualified students for admission,” the professor and postgraduate fellow write. “But if Brett Kavanaugh is appointed, that position could change and would probably signal a return to pre-Civil Rights era race-neutral admissions policies.”
