Summer Lee Statement on Supreme Court Decision Ending Affirmative Action 

(Braddock, PA) – Today Congresswoman Summer Lee (PA-12), the first Black woman to represent PA in Congress, released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to end affirmative action:

“As a Black woman who had the audacity to attend college, I am disgusted that our country just enshrined racial inequity in higher education and economic immobility into law.

“Make no mistake — this decision by this corrupt and illegitimate Supreme Court was *designed* to keep a generation of brilliant Black young people out of higher education and positions of power. 

“The people whose great grandparents were enslaved are the young people who will be shackled by this decision. The cruelty is the point.

“And let’s not forget – The Supreme Court Justices who sold us today are unelected, shamelessly corrupt, and hold lifetime appointments with no code of ethics. We must hold them accountable.”
