    That's not what I said, and I'm offended that you think "welfare" is a bad word To me welfare means giving people the opportunity to rise up and overcome challenges including the circumstances of their birth and starting place and society. The military does that and that's what makes it a welfare/social institution.

    Can't accept reality, can you???
    False move, checkmate. Wingers fall for this one all the time.

    You have no dictatorship over 'reality' my friend. Your reality is subjective.

    It is generally only Blacks and liberals who lump all Whites together... most Whites don't do this...
    I don't even know what to make of the statement or how you can find it to be a fact or representative of any frame of reality except that of the political culture you're acclimated to or your own perception of race relations.

    It's not really Welfare since we work for are pay,promotions, ETC. A welfare program gives help to those in need with nothing required in return for the most part. I just think that Welfare is wrong way to describe the Military. Just better to say the Military is color blind. =)

    That is also one thing I love about sports. Today, that is also color blind. The best athlete wins, regardless of color... When I am on course, it isn't my color, language or creed that is going to get me to the finish line, it is the hard work I have put into it... Military and sports have done more to advance race relations in America than any other institutions in society...

    Four stars, bravo, no ****, citing subjective life experiences and attempting to convey them as discrete fact means nothing. o(~.')b
    I can play the tiniest violin in the world elsewhere. We'll discuss experiences when we want to.

    many White ethnic groups don't either. It is generally only Blacks and liberals who lump all Whites together... most Whites don't do this...
    My personal experience is that whites view themselves mostly as a single race in the US and largely homogenized. 50-60 years ago I'd gamble differently. I'll tell you what IS known though. Whites tend to categorize all blacks together, 'blackness' being an identity created by whites.

    That's erroneous. If you don't cut the mustard in the service, your ass is out. There are no hand-ups, hand-outs, oppurtunities to rise up, or any of that other warm and fuzzy crap. The only oppurtunity you have, is to make the grade, or do the duffle-bag-drag on your way back home.

    To me, getting a job means having the opportunity to rise up and overcome challenges, including the circumstances of birth and starting place in society. That's why the military is a good place to work, and advance.

    Are you kidding? With today's low recruitment rates it's very, very hard to get kicked out for something like incompetence. You'll get punished, sure, but not cut off from the teet of the american taxpayer. My best friend has told me enough stories about incompetence in the Army he's seen over the past 3 years to back this up with lots of examples. Plus the stories I've heard from my two cousins in the Marines and Navy (both career), and another friend in the Airforce.

    A good chunk of those in the military are basically those who can't succeed in the real world, and drag down the service for those who don't join up for self-serving reasons.

    Why no give scholarships to people who are most likely to graduate?

    California is spending billions of dollars each year to run minorities in the front door only to have the go out the back door in the first year. I think that the reason they do it is to keep the schools going and to pat themselves on the back for helping the minorities understand just how dumb they are.

    Barry wants every student to have a seat in college. As if the 50% of minorities that don’t get out of high school should have or would use a seat in college.

    Back to the subject at hand: these guys will be sued by the NAACP, attacked physically by the Black Panthers, maligned by the left wing media and chatted about in derogatory terms on the web. Kids who get the money that they raise will be discriminated against by the teachers and will have hell passing.

    I wouldn’t take their money if I wanted to get out of college alive.
