    Yes, people who tell you racism still exists in the US are lying. It's a ruse.




    Granted, I probably had a huge advantage over my peers by not going to college and going straight into a career because I didn't need college. I was already smarter than the vast majority of college professors anyways. But getting into the right college can mean a lot to the average Joe.

    You are living WHAT "narrative"?

    Is this going to be more personal anecdotal bs?

    Go on, tell us about the poor repressed white person that represents a large percentage of the US white population.

    What could be more racist than going through life convinced that people of your own race are deserving of special privilege because the majority race is made up of evil oppressors? That the majority race has better jobs, better opportunities, more money, etc. only because they are evil, because they cheat you and other minorities. It's a belief in the inherent moral inferiority of a race of human beings and the moral superiority of your own race -- the textbook definition of "racism".

    There is no institutionalized anti-black racism in the US. That's the fact of the matter. In fact, there is institutionalized government enforced anti-white racism. It is official government policy.

    And it is immoral IMO.

    Do you advocate racism?

    Stop with the semantic games, many govts in the US had acts specifically allowing slavery.

    Good grief!
    Good grief indeed. Reading comprehension issues? Point to the post where I said that the US government didn't allow slavery. I'll wait for you to link it.

    1.) good thats the right pick
    2.) you are free to believe as you wish but that is factually what they do, this wont change. THey have a definition and rules and laws and rights to guide it all.
    3.) Their beliefs are meaningless and so is the believes of thier uneducated colleagues to reality and facts. ANd the BEST fact us is we all benefit form AA/EEO no matter the race. And id said individual was given or denied something based on race that factually WAS NOT AA/EEO.

    THese are the facts people have to educated themselves with and if they cant thier opinion dont matter anyway. People are free to THINK whatever they want if its not true why does it matter? it doesnt

    4.) quotas are ILLEGAL and definitely not part of AA/EEO.

    the problem with those people or the idiotic thoughts of thier colleagues that they worry about is that none of them understand what AA/EEO is.

    If a minority believes they got somewhere because of a quota then they have to realize that that was factually not AA/EEO no matter what people call it and that illegal activity needs reported.
    If thier non minority colleagues think they got there because of a quota then they have to realize that that was factually not AA/EEO no matter what people call it and that illegal activity needs reported.
    I a minority is worried that thier colleagues think they got thier because of a quota it shouldnt matter one bit what dumb people think and they should simply do thier job proving others wrong.

    Edit:

    And why do you think that your personal anecdotes have any validity?
    How do I know they didn't need AA to succeed? Because they were smart and worked hard.

    Wait, so now you're claiming that no black people are successful on their own merits, but instead are there because of AA? Do Barack & Michelle Obama know this? Interesting, I always thought it was the consensus that he did NOT get into Harvard, Occidental & Columbia because of AA. It appears that you're saying otherwise.

    Interesting. Now we have Libs saying the Obamas were products of Affirmative Action.
