Quote of The Last 146 Years: SCOTUS Justice Scalia on Upholding Mich. Ban on Affirmative Action University Admissions

For those who don't know what this SCOTUS decision is about:

And the SCOTUS release:

pg 27:

JUSTICE SCALIA, with whom JUSTICE THOMAS joins, concurring in the judgment. 
"It has come to this. Called upon to explore the jurisprudential twilight zone between two errant lines of precedent, we confront a frighteningly bizarre question: Does the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment forbid what its text plainly requires? Needless to say (except that this case obliges us to say it), the question answers itself."

Thank You Justices Scalia and Thomas.
