    true, but for the great majority of its application and history black/hispanic=disadvantaged and needing of help while white/Asian=advantaged and subject to discrimination

    telling black students that being black gives them a 130 points on the LSAT (when it was on the 800 scale) and a .5 boost of their GPA (a black with a 3.2 is seen the same as a white with a 3.7) is clearly telling blacks they don't have the ability to compete with white or asian students

    I agree, that a highly biased, willfully-ignorant & agenda-driven interpretation of this practise would see it as merely racist.

    mend it by taking race/identity entirely out of the equation...


    ... but by doing that, it would end it. <shrug>

    I already noted how I thought affirmative action should work and how I used it as a coach recruiting college athletes. sadly that takes too much work for most people so they use race rather than environment

    Ask the Republicans in Arizona - especially the crazy Sheriff down there. Or the lunatics in Alabama. They'll fill you in.

    You must mean the war that illegal immigrants wage upon our national sovereignty and the sanctity of our borders as well as the millions upon millions of dollars us tax payers must fork over to apprehend, prosecute and jail all the illegals who have committed serious felony offenses against our fellow citizens

    That sheriff and Alabama appear to be fighting back on behalf of us US citizens

    As an outsider looking in I thought the position of President was one that was respected by all Americans no matter their political opinion and then I moved here 2 years ago.....
