Supreme Inconsistency

The US Supreme Court recently ruled that Texas prosecutors wrongfully excluded African Americans from a jury that convicted Thomas Joe Miller-El of murder and sentenced him to death. John at Discriminations asks:
Why is non-discriminatory race neutrality required for jury selection but not for the selection of college students or employees?
A good question.

Posting about this reminded me of a Wall Street Journal article from a few months back noting several other recent examples of Supreme Court inconsistency.
