    So then, you admit that quotas are indeed utilized by employers (perhaps even by your own employer, perhaps even by your own self considering your stated position in the company of which you are employed) in order to avoid potential discrimination lawsuits, even if they are not officially utilized because it would be in violation of AA/EO law?

    1.) yes some employers break the law and they have unfair hiring practices which is NOT AA/EO
    2.) no my employer has ZERO qoutas
    3.) no its not to avoid lawsuits because having an unfair practice would increase successful lawsuits, any company doing this is retarded
    4.) yes if qouats are used it is in fact a violation of AA/EO law and not AA/EO.

    Do you mean to say that your employer has never taken any sort of account in regards to the number of "minority" employees it has on its payroll?

    Well, your employer has no quotas that they're telling you about at least...
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    please stay on topic to what was ACTUALLY being discussed

    Your mistake.
    Ignoring your childish ad hominem defense mechanisms, I'll point out that you fail to even understand this topic in it's entirety. Though the topic is institutional racism, a sub argument has spawned about education and how music / media influence one's attitude towards being an intellectual and seeing value in education. If you do not believe people are influenced by such outlets, you are deluding yourself.

    If you agree that negative messages regarding education and civil behavior are prevalent in rap music, and that in turn, that music influences people's behavior... What are you arguing?

    No. That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read.

    Also, I would highly doubt that subjective qualifications differ much between races. But I would be happy for you to prove me wrong. Either way, why don't we just solve the issue and forbid colleges from taking race into consideration. If they aren't hold races to different standards, then whats the purpose of race on an application?
    It doesn't really matter what you doubt. The fact is that you are making assumptions and treating them as facts. Like I said, medical schools have cutoffs for GPA and MCAT scores. Then, the applications that make the cutoff are considered on their individual merits. If the cutoff is a 3.5 GPA and there are two candidates - one with a 3.6 and the other with a 3.8 - and the 3.6 gets in, the deciding factor could have been recommendations, life story, research experience or something else. You've decided that it's race. That's your problem - not black medical student's or admissions office's.
