Double standard about racism in schools

When it comes to fairness, the suit filed by the Liberty Justice Center against the Loudoun County Public Schools in Alexandria, Virginia is long overdue (“Woke K-12 Education Goes to Court,” The Wall Street Journal, June 10).  That’s because the school district’s Student Equity Ambassador Network restricts membership to students of color. 

The court will have to decide if this violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.  I’m not a lawyer, but it seems quite evident that if the same network restricted membership to whites, there would be no question.  It seems anything at all that favors students of color is considered fair compensation for past discrimination.
