    The old fools beat their chest like tarzan of the apes, proclaiming that I am powerful because I have money. These dumb, lazy, blacks want affirmative action to take my money.

    Of course they do not want affirmative action because they want to be free to continue to abuse corporate power to harass others. Take this well known example

    "During the course of Defendant BILL O'REILLY'S sexual rant, it became clear that he was using a vibrator upon himself, and that he ejaculated. Plaintiff was repulsed"
    and

    "[D]uring the course of their dinner in early May 2002, Defendant BILL O'REILLY's demeanor abruptly changed. O'REILLY's eyes became glazed and bizarrely strayed in opposite directions. Suddenly, without provocation or warning, Defendant BILL O'REILLY said to Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS: "And just use your vibrator to blow off steam." When Plaintiff reddened, Defendant BILL O'REILLY asked lewdly: "What, you've got a vibrator, don't you? Every girl does." When Plaintiff replied indignantly, "No, and no, they don't. Does your wife?" Defendant replied: "Yes, in fact she does. She'd kill me if she knew I was telling you!" Plaintiff was repulsed."
    Now do you understand why they don't want affirmative action?

    Are Affirmative Action measures racist? No, but the congresspersons who devise the measures are quite possibly haters. And those who implement the measures are truly haters. Or course, they'll say minorities can't be haters...

    Of course they hate black athletes. That's why one of their arguments is that "you don't see quotas for whites in the NBA and NFL."

    BTW, that's another reason why we need to stop putting these athletes and rappers up on a pedestal. It's creating too much unnecessary envy among some white men.

    You've had fifty years of exactly what you describe. When might some gains be expected?

    I'd have to disagree. I don't think most of them even think about you enough to form malicious thoughts. Their focus is business success.

    Dude, quote who and what you are responding to. In a format like this your comments are totally lost as to their context. I've only seen you do it once so far. It's just very helpful.

    Ok then...viewed, assumed or implied superiority is a factor in racism. AA is not racist simply because it does not assume any given race is superior or inferior.
