    sorry to disappoint you another GGgrandfather was Major Anderson-the "hero" of Fort Sumpter who was on the cutting edge of freeing your ancestors (albeit a hundred thousand years removed) from those evil Democrat rebels!!!

    You ever check out the demographics of the US Naval Academy or West Point?

    man. I've worked with the recruiters. I've seen the calls come in: we need a black female don't care what MOS, and we need her to ship by next month. etc. so on and so forth.

    and you think they don't exist?


    tell that to West Point, where numeric targets by race are set at 10-12 percent black and 25 percent minority.

    and who was only free to do so because my ancestor was Captain Parker who commanded the militia at Lexington and started the Revolutionary War. And your ancestor lost, so I would say on top of remittances for the rest of the suffering that me and the African race have gone through, you should probably feel a little bit embarrassed.

    targets =/= quotas

    a boy I coached was recruited to Annapolis to play that sport. He was a solid B+ student at an elite prep school and was ranked in the top 50 of his sport among graduating seniors when he was in HS. yet, without the athletics he would not have gotten in even though his numbers and SAT/ACT scores were far higher than average. Why, because minorities are accepted under far lower standards-something he noted to me after a few months there. The white kids who get in there without a sport are about the same level as white kids getting into places Like Hamilton or Georgetown and close to those going to Cornell or Dartmouth. The black kids who aren't athletes-not even close

    Just like how my father has a large nose. I'm thinking when everything falls apart here, that makes me a shoo-in for free immigration to Israel.

    Hey. I recommend you to be in charge of all of Harvard !! I'm serious. At least you would kick some liberal ass. And its would be a target-rich environment.

    He actually didn't lose. he and his best friend from West Point (Beauregard sp) had a gentlemen's agreement. The rebels wouldn't shell the unfinished arsenal in the fort and perhaps blow it up but the Union wouldn't deploy its heavier guns on the top of the ramparts which could have hit the confederate artillery. I believe the only casualties involve a couple killed or injured during a firing of a salute!!

    it was a big sham. The rebel general was a hero for taking the fort without any real loss of life, Major Anderson was a hero for "forcing terms" that allowed him to march out with the colors intact (and in the first year of the war, the Union needed heroes!!)
