    Didn't call you one simply asked. Touchy?

    You can't legislate the mind, it doesn't exist because it is impossible to quantify. If anything, we have minority privilege because of affirmative action. AA is racism because its favoring one race over another for no reason other than past "sins" that barely if at all affect the benefactors.

    I'm not endorsing or condemning AA. But I have a couple or so questions.

    In your opinion...

    Say if AA didn't exist...that would be the end of racism? Or should I say...would any or all racial related inequities disappear in schools, the work place, etc?

    Do you believe that there is any form of incentive possible to encourage people not be a racist... or that could be done in a more equitable for all races involved?

    I think that AA has good intentions, but in reality it just continues the hate even if it has served its purpose in many cases. There are many people who just feel that they are being told that they should get to the back of the line because of their skin color on all sides of AA. IMO it would be better to just enforce anti-discriminatory laws rather than also enforce AA. A token minority in the workplace etc is still being racist. Personally I would be insulted if the only reason that I was hired was to meet a racial ratio quota. All that creates is animosity by people who perceive that they were judged by the color of their skin.

    Seriously, a point system based on race alone is racist. It cant be anything but racist.

    Real are fancied, there is in fact no privileged white person because they are white. However, the white race of people is on the decline and slated for annihilation, mostly from suicide of their once white country.

    Certainly prejudice, bigotry, racism is almost impossible to regulate or deal with legislatively as it is a state of mind...just as "CalvinCoolidge stated in his post. Discrimination laws can be tough to enforce because of the complexities of exposing racial motives that are created inside prejudice minds. Yes, there are some levels of evidence in certain settings that can bring out discrimination...but the problem is...unlike criminals who are guaranteed legal counsel at no cost... same doesn't apply to people who must attempt to prove that they've been discriminated against.

    Justice doesn't come cheap.

    True justice doesnt come cheap, but if a law or policy employs the same problem that it is trying to fix then its just as bad. Or actually it is worse since it would be government backed.

    The individual racist can be dealt with by employing ant-discriminatory laws (not claiming magic success here). But when the government engages in discriminatory policy and law there is no one thats going to even attempt to deal with those discriminations.

    We can teach that racism is wrong. And some people will listen to that wisdom. We can outlaw people from engaging in racism in specific situations as we should be obligated to do IMO. But we cannot become the thought police and force people to not be racist. Freedom of speech says that we cannot control the thoughts of the people. In the protection of liberty and freedom we unfortunately have to accept that some people will act like idiots and be racist.

    A) No. But it would be the end of government sponsored racism, and employers/ college boards / etc could do what they want to.

    B) No, because people will think what they think usually. Such policies like and including AA intensify racism IMO.
