    So the government should hire the best lawyers for black people? Because that's the only way to do what you are talking about.

    Black people get the same government appointed lawyers as everyone else. As it should be.

    Government appointed lawyers are generally of poor quality and you cannot get equal treatment under that law as a rich person with such lawyers.

    Everyone is the same under the law. If you have money and can afford your own lawyers good on you. It is not the government job to balance the income difference between rich and non-rich. Also their are rich non whites are you assuming that only white people are rich?

    But practically speaking everyone is not the same under the law. People with money can afford better lawyers and can influence people in the judicial system directly and/or through contacts. It simply is not true that everyone is the same before the law.

    They will always be corruption. AA does not fix that problem. All it does is say " the government view minorities as inferior to whites and if we don't give them a leg up they will never make it in the world without our help." That is Government sponsored racism.

    If you the world to be a better then promote equality not government programs that are race based. All those do is promote inequality.

    You say "it's the 21st Century", stand up and be counted for who you are, not what you are.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You misunderstand, your ignorant interpretation of AA is racist.

    AA exists for two reasons primarily:

    1. Diversity improves a university and the product offered.
    2. It helps to counter systemic racism that exists today.
