    That democrats have changed from hating blacks, to hating whites, is not progress nor an improvement.

    Let me tell you a story that illustrates my point. I have posted this before on this board but long before you got here and why I believe this

    In the Fall of 1980, my college nominated about 12-15 students for the Rhodes Scholarship. I was fortunate enough to be one of them. IT was suggested we attend a meeting with 4 graduate students who were former Rhodes Scholars to learn about the procedure. The four included three white men (2 at the medical school and one at the Law school) and a black man who was a 2nd year medical student. The black guy was the quietest of the four and didn't say much. One guy I knew-who ended up being a finalist for the scholarship and graduated #1 in his class at Duke Law a few years later noted to me that the "black guy probably was an affirmative action poster child" based on what I had seen at yale for almost 4 years, I figured there was much truth to that.

    As the meeting broke up, the Black Rhodes Scholar came over to me and mentioned he had seen me playing table tennis at the gym (I was first singles on the club varsity team). he said he heard that the US Open was going to be at his alma mater (Princeton) later in the spring. SO I started talking to this guy. He was PHI BETA KAPPA at Princeton. He was an all-american in track, and he worked-as a volunteer-at a local hospital. he was the most qualified guy in the room. his credentials were Far Far more impressive than the three white Rhodes Scholars.

    And the stigma of affirmative action hurt guys like him because unless people took the time to look into his background as I did, they are often going to assume he was a recipient of some benefits due to his race.

    and another example. A guy on one of the school teams with me was a black guy who went to Exeter Academy. HIs father was a professor at a good NY Law school. He got into Yale because he was black-his middle of the class standing at Exeter was not sufficient for white applicants unless they were really good athletes (he never advanced past middle of the JV Squash team) or had massive legacy connections. He was an OK student at Yale-he graduated with about a 3.2. He told everyone he was going to get into Yale Law and he did. with a GPA about .6 of a point lower than any white guy or woman I knew who got into Yale. He got through Yale and was hired by a top top NYC law firm

    he lasted about a year. One of my best friends from Law school is now a partner there. He said the black guy I knew at Yale tried his best at this $$$$ law firm but he just couldn't hang with kids who had made 4.0 grades since middle school.

    Its sort of like a guy who runs 5 miles a week for 15 years trying to hang with marathoners who run 100 miles a week for 15 years. At age 25, you just cannot make up for 15 years of not working nearly as hard as people who have more talent than you have

    So affirmative action got this guy two golden degrees-Yale BA and Yale JD and he ended up being a failure professionally.

    That's interesting considering there's an entire thread on DP about conservatives trying to hijack JFK.

    And why do you think MLK was a conservative? He certainly wasn't a Republican, or a Democrat.

    “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.”

    True, some proponents think they are actually helping blacks with that idiocy.

    but I think those who actually run the Dem party are far more sinister. Its like claiming pushers are helping those they sell smack to

    Id call out any conservative trying to hijack jfk. Jfk was a liberal democrat. But he wasnt the flaming tin hat space cadet liberal we see today.

    Are you going to deny that the Southern Democrats largely left the Democratic Party after the Civil Rights Act was instituted? That support for the CRA was based on geographic lines, not party lines? That the political identity of the parties 100-150 years ago is virtually irrelevant to today? All in your futile, intellectually dishonest attempt to prove that racism is the sole province of the Democratic Party, and thus "the left"?
