I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The competent pay a very heavy price as they are forced to wear the cloak of AA stigma.
This outcome is probably best, but it won't be cost free. On the positive side, the economic efficiency of the US would jump radically higher for all of the race-norming procedures we force onto society lower our economic efficiency and actually cost us money. Secondly, the spirit of advancement by merit is more inspiring to people than the spirit of advancement by who one knows or advancement by quota. However, the downside is that the incidence of racial stratification will increase over time and the feeling of victimhood and denied entitlement will increase in those segments of society that can't advance strictly on merit.Let's just have a level playing field and let the chips fall where they may. I'd love absolutely color blind, merit based progress of individuals. It's best for everyone, for society as a whole. That would be a great gift, a great example for the world to see and follow.
These downsides are built right into the very fabric of multiculturalism. If you set out to create a multiculturalist society then you can't escape differential achievement metrics.
If he were running for president and had a pacifist stance I'd oppose him vociferously too.
Tell me, what is wrong with living free lives?
People treated equally under the eyes of the law?
We could twist numbers about wealth all year long. What is the solution? Freedom. Equal rights under the law.
King died in 68. If you were born in 1955 you might have a recollection of a few events. That makes those people... 13 at the time... 54 today. It is a different world today. We don't need these wedges anymore. It is a detriment to society but good for the libs. They have no shame pulling out the race card.
You know, I clearly remember Obama saying "There is not a black American and white American and Latino America and Asian American--there is the United States of America."
Seems these were "words... just words." Otherwise Holder, Attorney General of the United States of America wouldn't have uttered his divisive tripe.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
I think that it's all about spin.
It's like a magician, he wants you to watch him, and not his hands.
As long as we bicker about B.S. like race,the politicians will keep taking our rights away.And not doing the job we elected them to do,while we bicker about B.S.It's all about power and money,and we are not included.
One of these days someone will come knocking on your door with guns and a uniform and tell you what you need to do.
White people are second class citizens,how come we are just Americans and not European-Americans,that's just plain discrimination.

Of course, you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt, as they don't take into account what type of degrees these are.Median for Whites:
Median for Blacks:
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I think it is slightly more than that. It is not just multi-cultural it is the multi-tone skin color.Originally Posted by river

pound cake bit? Self-serving race-baiting bigots like Sharpton and Jackson are the ones who would want the officer lynched and the criminal enshrined in eternal victimhood. Obama and Holder are more the types to steal the pound cake for the entire black community while assuring those who follow the rules and work for a living that they're being "patriotic" for surrendering everything they've earned.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).
