    It is what Affirmative Action has always stated.

    So you're saying Affirmative Action is racist.

    How does one end racist by implementing racist policies?

    Affirmative Action is racist, and I'm not going to apologize for something I didn't do (slavery).

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    Again, I don't agree with AA being done now, but at a time, there was a definite need for it.
    Tell that to overqualified whites who didn't get a job or promotion because a quota had to be met.

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    We are ALL harmed by this apology.

    We are harmed by Congress wasting time on stupid **** that they could have been spending on something MUCH MUCH more important to our country in this time.

    As for the "African American" stupidity. Again it is nothing but more salt and causes even more of a divide. We are "Americans" it's not like we had any choice in our heritage. I am not African and don't really care about Africa, so why the hell should I put up with being called African American? I am an American with a dark skin color woohoo!

    This whole slavery thing is for the birds.

    Now that I think about it all liberals have given the black man is a welfare state and affirmative action. Well thanks, we appreciate the fact you don't think we can make it on an even playing field.
    I love this post, and I think im going to link back to it from time to time.

    Not even a little bit. Unless you believe that one wingnut Black man speaks for the entire population of African-Americans... which you probably do.

    When you can't win an election outside of the south or mountain west, the answer to your problems is NOT "more of the same, but LOUDER!!!"
