DENVER (AP) - The Supreme
Court decision in the Allen Bakke
academic discrimination case lays the
groundwork for another century of
struggle on the issue of racial
discrimination, civil rights leader Jesse
Jackson said yesterday.
Jackson told delegates to the
National Conference of State
Legislatures that the decision, com-
bined with the passage of the property
tax reducing Proposition 13 in Califor-
nia, is producing a crisis in Ameican
AT A MEETING later with members
of the National Conference of Black
Legislators, Jackson described plans
for drafting what he called model anti-
Bakke legislation that the lawmakers
could take to their home states.
If states acknowledge the existence of
past discrimination, he said, courts
would be free to protect quota systems
in academic admissions.
Of Proposition 13, Jackson said it is
"punitive rather than redemptive" and
"divides, rather than unites people."
AT A NEWS conference following his
speech, he said Proposition 13 "ex-
ploited the people's aggressive rage"
and predicted that it will be repealed.
Jackson said the Bakke decision
stemmed from racism that split the
logic of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court ruled last week
that the medical school of the Univer-
sity of California at Davis had
discriminated against Bakke, who is
white, in denying his consideration for
one of a specific number of places held
for minority-group members.
AT THE SAME time, -the court
upheld the constitutionality of less
restrictive affirmative action
programs in higher education.
Jackson said the court engaged in a
"logical contradiction" when it argued
that racial considerations are accep-
table-but not in the form used at the
Legally, the Bakke decision
"represents the end of the period of
the second Reconstruction and lays the
predicate for anothr century of struggle
around the issue of racial
discrimination," Jackson said.
"The court's decision was a
devastating but not a fatal blow
because the court did not leave us un-
protected, but it left us less protected,"
he said. -
