    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    That doesn't make a lick of sense to me. It's racist, b/c they are rotating the positions on an annual basis? So in other words, they are including everybody, so that makes it racist every other year???

    Wouldn't racism be, never allowing 1 group or the other to be in a position ever through school policy? I see affirmative action being implimented, but I don't see where its racist. Convaluted yes, but not racist, as every other year the other race gets all the accolades.

    Look, I could really care less about this, its stupid to begin with, b/c its school positions, that really don't mean squat or have any real significant importance in life to begin with. It is dumb to me, that this policy has been around for 30 years, just as its dumb to me, that people are calling it racist in nature.

    Welcome to the public school system.

    Just another reason why I homeschool my kids.

    What a stupid policy. I would have run and if I was elected President resigned making the Vice-President the new President.

    People should be hired based on their skills. The best should get chosen for the position they are hoping to get. Though I do think that minorities should be protected from discrimination. If Affirmative action an affective program to do that, I don't know. To be honest I haven't really looked into the situation.

    It's racist because your denying a race something one year, while allowing it the next. There taking race into consideration, which is the definition of racism.

    By giving the minorities protection, isn't that basically discriminating against the majorities? Why should minorities get special protection, while the others don't?

    Because throughout history the majority has overwhelmingly discriminated against the minority.

    I understand where your coming from, but it's based on a 2 year cycle. If you look at it from an annual perspective, it may look racist, but when you take the 2 year cycle into account, it includes everybody.

    Again, I say it, its stupid. But what in public school isn't?

    You got to have a "B" average to even apply, so that probably rules out 90% of the school....haha.
