    Fresh out of high school on to a college campus with, the same ignorance and poorly formulated ideas and on top of that.... some college professors take an active role in positively reinforcing their stupidity.

    On the flip side, I think it's dismissive to say that the people in Congress are "stupid".

    They are very well educated, and have **** figured out way more than the rest of us do. They are what passes for "royalty" in American society and they know it and generally they are very effective at getting stuff done when they are of a mind to do so. Unfortunately for us, the agenda is being set by lobbyists, so the stuff that gets done doesn't serve the likes of you and I very well.

    The point of doing these kinds of studies is that most people will not admit to being racists. If they did you would just have to do a poll asking, "are you a racist?"

    Why are you arguing that black accountants and black journalists are racists. That doesn't make sense.

    I've avoided being *really* critical so far, but this thread has taken a hard turn towards Stupidville.

    This is really a bull**** thread. The black community has really only had equal rights for less than 50 years. How long do you think it took the immigrant italian, polish, irish, etc..., to create a fully developed community. I have little doubt that minority (except asian ) unemployment will converge with the average 50 years from now. Institutional racism is really just a drag on efficiency.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    It seems to me that the person who is best qualified deserves the promotion, period. It should never be about race, creed, color or sex. Either you earned it or you didn't.

    I am not making any excuses, just pointing out a reality. How can we expect a specific demographic of this country to achieve equal development (on the average) when this very demographic did not have equal rights until about 50 years ago?

    That really sounds eugenics-esque.
