    I think it's better if all of us just acknowledge reality and stop pretending that things aren't there.

In this particular case, it was a Republican who transmitted the email, but such dispicable acts aren't anything new. Depicting Blacks as monkeys has gone on since WWI both domestically and abroad.


    i think quotas and affirmative action are just as racist. "oh don't worry black, we dumbed down teh standards for you"... If I was black I'd be highly offended of being viewed that way.

    Which implicates both parties. Republicans under Nixon had actually heavily developed the quota enforcement during the 1970s.

    Why does it matter who I "give attention" to?

    Umm...affirmative action doesn't "dumb down" the standards. Affirmative action takes two equally qualified people and chooses the minority over the white person....

    I'm sick of hearing about people's "racial identity" We are Americans.
    I didn't say he called anyone whitey or cracker. He called his grandmother a "typical white person" You might not find that insulting or racist, but I do. I also found his comment about the cops acting stupidly, as racist, since he admitted he didn't have the facts. He has done more to divide the races than any other president with his comments.

    What happened to the thread in breaking news? Where's my post saying Obama deserved it? I was like the 3rd post.

    It doesn't ahve to od that either. The law actually requires that the hiring institution show NO favortism based on race, religion or gender. Only a court can order a business take a minortity, if they were too greivious in their prejudicial hiring practices.

    The courts did allow a small point award to a minority, but recent rulings ahve lower if not eliminated even that. Which is why there have not been any major gains for minorties or major loses for white males. It is largely a perception thing, often a misperception.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And anyone who supports that is racist.
