Abstract This Harvard Law Review article analyzes the background behind Lewis v. Bentley as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals decision. The article compares the Eleventh Circuit court's reasoning on the case to previous Supreme Court cases Village of Arlington Heights v. Metropolitan Housing Development Corp and Shelby County v. Holder. Advocating for a more race-conscious approach to judicial decisions in the Supreme Court, the article supports the Eleventh Circuit court's reflection of the experiences of Black Americans.
