    Your son being denied a single school is in no way whatsoever similar to dealing with racism every day of ones life.

    real diversity is different strengths

    not different skin colors when half of those involved are second rate

    You're complaining about being turned down maybe one time ever and comparing it with being oppressed all of ones life. It's BS.

    It is government instituted and socially accepted "racism"!

    Which is the absolute most offensive and oppressive kind!

    When a crime is rewarded ~ it becomes epidemic:

    Real diversity is different cultures, economic backgrounds, experiences (including with racism, sexism and homophobia), and other macro factors. Not minor differences in a narrow pool.

    sorry but you cannot prove that the lazy kids who get AA were oppressed but we can prove those passed over were racially discriminated against. You engage in the racist stereotype that "black=oppressed" and white mean "beneficiary of oppression"

    group rights is a belief held by the weak minded who don't have the intellectual rigor to examine people individually

    Do you think it is a coincidence that the dropping of our test scores directly coincides with when diversity began and has steadily dropped as diversity has increased?

    Not racist, just true.

    I blame black kids who didn't have the academic talent to meet the proper standards being able to get into that school. less intelligent or ambitious students decreased the school
