Equal law today: divided

Equal Law today: Divided The law of any court is supposed to hold equal order for everyone. The law is not supposed to consider any racial or sexist difference; every citizen has a blind belief on their law of the supreme court that they will get equal rights and justice but according to the reading this is not always the scenario because injustices and unequal rights has been experienced by people of different races. Racial differences are not only viewed in society or other public sectors but even the courts give biased judgments. The browns always seem to suffer and the whites always seem to get away with ease.
The reading is about the deep study of equality law. It tells about how the court can play different roles in equality conflicts. The reading talks deeply about the fact that how a single court offers different procedures and decisions for different races, in order to prove this fact true, the writer has given different references from the past i. e the brown and white racial differences.
The reflection that one gets out of the reading is that the equal law today is divided. For different races and minorities, the law of court changes. When minorities challenges the law and order and dispute that the government has segregated or unequal on the racial basis the plaintiffs must consider its duty to declare that the government acted for a discriminatory purpose.
This foreword elaborates that how a body of constitutional law which was started as the motivation to protect minorities was later transformed to the conflict which was invoking provokes for the minorities and was termed as unequal.
The writes seems to give few views on the transformation of the law of court, he says that some justices appear to hold the view that the change in law of the court is appropriate because racial minorities are the favorites of the law and discrimination among the races is no longer an uncommon thing for them.
Justice Kennedy seems to approve this view, he says that the government is enjoying these racial differences and is no more interested in resolving it. A part from the inequality, the writer talks about empathy, the writer says that very different kinds of empathy guide the Courts interpretation of equal protection. This equal protection is defined in the sexual orientation of the term.
Windsor radiate that whatever decisions the law makes, radiates a different meaning, Windsor seems to suggest that courts considers how minorities understand and experience the law when they decide how the law would consider their arguments. The writer at the end compels the reader to imagine, he asks to imagine a specific court that produced a majority of injustices and other practices of suspect apprehensions that brings differences in the race or imagine a court that suggests constitutionality of the law etc.
Thus to conclude it can be said that the foreword talks about the unequal law that brings discrimination in the races. The reading gives a view that every organization is been based on partiality and subjectivity, the courts which are supposed to be considered unbiased also turns in favor of specific races.
