    This is a pretty big racist action.,they are supporting rules and laws that are by nature racist. If they claim to not be a racist then how can they support racism in our laws,hiring practices and other such things? If those 4 justices are not racist they are hypocrites. It can not be denied that what the fire department did was racist and it can not be denied that what judges did by ruling in favor of racist policies is indeed support of racist practices. This is not any different than a judge who supported segregation and jim crow laws.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Funny how I said the same thing.
    "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.

    You are philosophically correct and one can follow suit and say that there is no such thing as reverse racism or reverse sexism, and on and on.

    Using that definition of afirmatve is racism since to grant some group precedence over another group based upon race alone is racist by that definition. Racial descrimination is against the law. Having said that then afirmative action is against the law. So to correct the sins of past racism and descrimination "we ' allowed descrimination and racism to be used to do that. Is that fighting fire with fire ? Or can someone say fighting stupidity with stupidity ?

    Affirmative Action has always been racist.

    Enough said.
    I agree. Sotomayor is a pathetic choice for a Supreme Court Justice. Her only qualification is her latina vagina.

    You mean, my assessment of the known and published facts about the Latina Vagina doesn't cut it for you.

    What would that broad have to do for you to see her racism, rule against a bunch of white men that studied for and took a test honestly and passed who were idscriinated against by a city that refused to certify their own test because not one black man studied well enough to pass?

    Sotomayor agreed with the presumption that a test is racist because blacks wouldn't pass it.

    Yes, Sotomayor agreed with the assumption by the EEOC that the givers of tests with disparate racial impact are guilty of racism, instead of asserting the old fashioned white-guys idea that men are innocent until proven guilty.

    It's her job to annul laws that do not conform to such basic constitutional standards, and her racism prevented her from doing that.

    This was Dinkins.
    A decade or so ago Los Angeles had an open test for new fireman positions.

    Whites were told to not bother taking the test.
