    The fact that I'm a professional who came from a working class single mother is why I blame the parents. The parents, if they are unhappy with being working class, should raise their children with the message "I want you to do better than me." The academic resources provided for their children are sufficient for them to move up a class from the previous generation of their family. This is, of course, under the assumption of effort on both parts (parent and child).

    whether it be by quotas, education, recruitment, test-preparation, or extra points on tests, this historical evil must be undone.

    however, I believe a judge should determine how long such affirmative action should take place and at what point it is no longer needed.

    but as far as "punishing" a whole race for the crimes of their ancestors, sometimes justice is a bitter pill. such is the price we must pay for allowing such a situation to exist for soo long.

    I agree with you...look my father who I loved more than anything couldnt write...he was a disabled ww2 vet who still went to work everyday in pain...he told me from when I was young...get a good job with benefits take care of the job and it will take care of you....thankfully he doesnt know how wrong he turned out to be with the greedy mutts of my generation...anyway the reason I told you this is....my father didnt know enough to push me to become a professional...I agree it starts with the parents...

    but I should say that as far as affirmative action goes, I would have prefered we insured a free college tuition to all African-Americans to any state school, who graduate from high school. i think that would have been a great thing.

    Your view of justice is disgusting. Is it just to punish me, a while male, because other whites were racist in the past? What crime did I commit? Does my genetic code merit punishing me? It's unjust to have race based scholarships and racially motivated job/school opportunities.

    like I said, sometimes justice is a bitter pill.

    affirmative action is not perfect, but it is there to correct a centuries old crime.

    That is not true we are all different not only physically but mentally emotionally and intellectually, no one can run a mile faster then it's possible for them to run it and no one can reach an intellectual capacity that is past their potential. Genetics play a role both physically and intellectually

    This is a statement of no validity and does not debate my point logically.

    Please review my previous post and explain to me how that is justice.

    It's seems obvious to me that you think you know it all, I know I don't. I never made it pass the 9th grade but ended up in management in a large international company. Knowing that I lacked the ability to recall information I found a way to work around it, I never had a listening problem, If I wanted to be a chess master I would find the best players to learn from, Those who worked with "me" whether at a higher level of management or at a job that I supervised liked working "with" me" .

    You don't impress me, you seem to be one of those "me me me" people you have no idea that it takes all of us working towards a common goal for the common good to achieve the best possible outcome for "all". You appear to think that your blood is a different color and more valuable then mine or some other non Ivy League individual.

    The way that President Obama has attempted to work across the aisle, takes his time to collect the best information that he can before making a decision indicates to me that he is intelligent, that he is not intimidated by others that may have more knowledge then he has. President Obama has to learn when and where to draw the line, he needs to become tougher less willing to compromise his visions maybe by 2012 when the dems take the majority back in both houses and he is re-elected to a second term

    A smart person recognizes their weakness and knows how to turn that weakness into strength. Listening to you leads me to believe that you already know every thing there is to know, I know a man with an IQ in the 140's he has spent the last ten years in his basement he knows every thing just ask him
    you are right on some things and wrong on others. You are right in noting some people with high IQs are failures and some people with limited education are successful No doubt about that at all.

    Your claim that Obumble is trying to work across the aisle and get good ideas from everyone though is dubious. I think his biggest problem is he believes the fawning BS the press has lathered upon him and thus thinks he is the new Messiah
