J. Scalia's concurrence is scathing and puts Sotomayor and affirmative action in the clear light of logic and reason.  His opening statement is one of the best I've heard regarding affirmative action:

we confront a frighteningly bizarre question: Does the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment  forbid what its text plainly requires?

It cannot be put any plainer than that.
