Biden said Thursday he is "disappointed" with the Supreme Court.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware, said Thursday he is "extremely disappointed" with the latest Supreme Court ruling that calls for limiting the use of race when assigning students to public schools.
The Democratic presidential hopeful and senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement, "The decision turns the clock back on the achievements the country has made in advancing racial diversity in our public schools. It is a major blow to the promise of equality that began 53 years ago with the Court’s landmark decision of Brown v. Board of Education."
“This decision, and other recent decisions affecting individual rights, is the reason I fought so hard to keep Justices Alito and Roberts off the Court," he added. "The personal liberties of every American would be threatened even more if another conservative is allowed to serve on the Roberts’ Court."
