Following Justice Scalia's Plessey Redux question, this:

As former U.S. Solicitor General Gregory Garre, the lawyer for the university, explained how low minority enrollment led to "glaring racial isolation" for students of color, Roberts questioned whether increasing their numbers was a valid educational objective.
