No, just testing you.
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.
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?
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.
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.
