The high court gave a little to both supporters and opponents of affirmative action in two decisions today.
In the first case, the Supreme Court ruled that colleges and universities are allowed to use race as a factor in selecting students.
But it also said race cannot be the overwhelming factor in admissions. Today's rulings are already making a buzz at Virginia Tech.
