    You seem to think that economics equals the only opportunity's. If this were the case, I know allot of successful blacks that are in for a surprise.
    not only, but it's certainly important.

    As I said it has long outlived it's usefulness.

    PS I do agree it did not end a damn thing or do anything about racism.
    Racism will exist eternally.. as long as fear / jealousy / anger exists.

    It's a human condition... if it's not white on black, black on white, brown on white, etc... it will be some other reason.... left handed people on right handed people.

    It's unfortunate, that's the way humans are.

    Actually if this was a third world country I would agree, but it's not. Anyone can go to school here, period. Anyone can get an education no matter the background.

    Affirmative action and programs like it need to die.

    You do realize I mean in his career, right? I mean, it's not like he's remotely close to hitting 30K this season.


    And actually, his actions today don't really prove Limbaugh wrong for at the time. I ran the stats for the 2003 season.

    Completion percentage, TD's, QB rating, yards....McNabb was around 14th-19th in the league in all those stats. Hardly the place for an "elite" QB without any history of being continually elite (ala the current Brady. He may be having a slightly down year, but its hard to discount the guy with 3 rings)
    While you were doing your research, did you happen to take a glance at his top receivers from that season? Todd Pinkston and James Thrash (and I know you know exactly how much he sucks) were the top two receivers each with about 570 total yards.

    When you take that into account, I'd say his numbers were very impressive and idicative of an elite QB.

    The thing is, Rush was making claims about McNabb without considering the severe suckage that McNabb had to deal with at his WR positions.

    Sure in some form it probably will, but long gone in our country are the days of slavery, weekend lynchings, and institutional racism.

    It would be outright silly to say laws and programs like AA didn't help greatly.

    Whether it's time to end these programs can be debated honestly, but I still know of places here in the south where a black person stands little chance of getting hired at.

    Racism isn't "slavery, weekend lynchings"... sorry, but that's a whole 'nother topic.. and if you wanna go there, maybe you should start with the African slave traders who made it possible for Slaves to be sold in the first place... Maybe you should take a peek at the STILL EXISTING slave trade in Africa.

    I don't buy the whole big bad white man bull****.

    I think that we should stop indoctrinating black kids into thinking they have three options, welfare, drug dealing, or professional sports. That's just me.
