Dear Mr. Olson:

The Bush administration should oppose racism in all of its forms. That is why we are urging you to file a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court against the University of Michigan “affirmative action” policies that amount to reverse racism against whites. We understand that the first set of briefs is due by the end of January and that oral arguments will be held at the end of March. There is some fear among conservatives that the administration may intervene on behalf of the university in order to appease the liberal lobbies and avoid being accused of “racism” by these special interests. Can you assure me that is not the case? Will you re-commit the administration to the color-blind society envisioned by Martin Luther King Jr.?
