    You said everyone should be equal before the law. That's not the case. It has to do with your economic standing.

    Equal standing in the eyes of the law was nothing to do with economic standing in society. Those are two different things. If you are wanting to help the poor I understand but you don't do it with a law that is race base.

    I disagree, people decide how justice is administered and people with money and can afford the best legal representation and that have contacts that are able to influence people with judicial power are treated differently. That's the truth.

    And making a race base law fixes this how?

    You said people should have equal standing in the eyes of the law. I'm saying they don't, because the system treats people with money differently.

    No, you are trying to make in this into an income inequality thread. That is not the topic here. The Topic is AA racist. If you make a thread about the pro/cons about economic standing I will gladly debate you about it their.

    People do have equal standing in the law via the Constitution. Just because someone can pay for a "better" lawyer does not change this.

    /Shrug. Your anecdotal means nothing.
    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.

    This is exactly what the military does with officer promotions.

    You brought it up. In post #169

    Government corrects this by giving the same standing in the eyes of the laws not by giving special treatment.
    The Constitution and all laws are ultimately interpreted and put into effect by people. People are the eyes of the law in practical terms.

    It's the truth. It's not a meritocracy. I have seen what vicious white people will do to other white people simply because they don't like them.
