    no, they're not.....but poor often means minority. and poor and minority together are clearly 2 strikes.

    if we were to discuss poverty, the same people who are calling me stupid here would continue in the same vein.

    So what about poor white and asain children? It's bull**** racism no matter how you try and justify it, can't you see that?

    So you are saying blacks are to stupid or weak to make it on our own? Are you saying because we are poor we can't make it like a poor white person???

    It's racist bull****.

    I'm not saying there isn't a problem with the education system. I'm saying you're approaching it in the wrong manner. The problem is public education and its failure especially in the more heavily urban areas. That needs to be fixed. That's the root problem. Solve that, you don't need to rig it so that some scrawny kid with asthma is playing QB for the Steelers.

    Absolutly.

    Each person should be judged on their own merit. Not an arbitrary system by race.

    Getting away from this is the only way to let blacks rise up for ourselves.

    I guess you can tell I am pretty sick of the excuses. Don't take it personal, just a hot subject for me.

    of course people should be judged on their merit, and i'm not taking it personally, my family is very much "integrated".

    but how can you deny children the opportunity for an equal education? because right now, it's not happening. hence, the opportunity to attend top notch colleges is denied, at least more remote.

    i don't belive equal opportunity = equal outcome, but i want the OPPORTUNITY to be there.
    as i mentioned before, economics plays a big role.

    Yes. They do. I know, I grew up black.

    Ridicules fallacy.

    My contention is that there is. Coming from people like yourself who think blacks can't make it without some kind of advantage.
