Abstract

This article shows how race impacts the concept of Liberty in Supreme Court Jurisprudence over four periods of US History to reinforce a dominant political economy. It shows how the Court's present political economy blinds us to the real judicial context of Brown v. Board of Ed. thereby reinforcing anti affirmative action ideas and racial segregation.
