...nal basis in order to be discriminated against. An example of how this classification would be how the Supreme Court “deemed a Missouri law constitutional that required public officials to retire at age 70.” (Cengage Slide 9) Personally I find that this classification system is fine the way it is in the present day. Things such as religion and race should never be discriminated against in court unless it has potential for national harm, gender shouldn’t be discriminated against, however I personally do not view it to be as important as race or religion. And finally I believe that nonsuspect classifications should be the easiest to discriminate against due to the inherent possibility that it does not affect a specific gender, race, or religious preference directly, and in all likelihood would deal with people from all of those categories instead of one specific group.
