    in voting I don't think it comes into play as much since there is no real objective standards. what makes someone objectively qualified or more qualified to be elected? the one who gets the most votes

    The standard is not lowered, it is met. And there will always be acceptances at the lower end of those standards. Claiming that people let in at the lower end of standards are lowering those standards is dishonest.

    saying letting someone jump past people with higher credentials does not lower standards is a flat out lie

    there is no other way to put it

    This does not surprise, sadly. The NAACP is just a outbranch of this country's major socialist party.

    Now why would they? Love and Scott are Republicans. The NAACP is a black Democratic Organization. It was not always that way, not under its original leadership, but it has become just another Democratic Party Organization much like NOW has.

    I do not blame them, but I am more curious if the Congressional Black Caucus will allow Love and Scott to join. The CBC told J.C. Watts when he won, he could join but not attend their meetings. The CBC is another Democratic Party Organization.

    Now there is nothing wrong with being a Democratic Party Organization, both parties have them. But I think the three I mention should own up to it. But that is me.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    yeah. that's why they support school choice, eh? Blacks overwhelmingly want it and so obviously the NAACP is all about it, right?

    Democrat presumption of ownership is sad, but not nearly so sad as their enablers

    Tim Scott and Mia Love were elected by whites to represent their values....not blacks or the NAACPs.


    So why aren't Scott and Love supporting the NAACP?

    So what are "White Values" and what are "black values"? Can one be a black person and not support the NAACP or is that taboo?

    But they have higher credentials, because universities value diversity and addressing systemic privilege to provide opportunity to those deserving but held back by systemic privilege.

    Let's face it, you're just trying to claim blacks harm the university system. And you do so very dishonestly. Let's look at some of the obvious ways that your claim of blacks harming society are false:


    1. The standards are met, not lowered.
    2. Whites make up the majority of the bottom 20%, but you only claim the blacks are lowering standards.
    3. Diversity is valuable to a university, it increases the quality of the product.
    4. Addressing systemic privilege is valuable to a university, it provides opportunities for those held back by systemic privilege.
    5. Things other than gpa and sat establish the creds of an applicant.


    So, let's stop singling out blacks from among the bottom 20% and let's stop pretending that meeting the standards is lowering the standards.

    There is a vast difference between opposing everything that we stand for and not supporting a desired agenda (checklist of desired legislative changes).

    "I think only a couple of times maybe one or two, he voted with what the organization perceived as in line with the organization's agenda," said Darby.
    It seems to me that being a demorat is somewhat of a requirement for passing that NAACP "agenda" test. In other words, if you are not for our agenda then you are against us.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
