Abstract:     
Where race is not used as a factor, then the means used does not classify according to a suspect trait - and judicial review is relatively undemanding: the end sought to be achieved may be merely a "legitimate governmental objective" which is reasonably likely to be achieved by the race-neutral means involved. Moreover, there is a presumption that the governmental conduct is proper, thus casting a substantial burden on the challenger to demonstrate invalidity.
