    Maybe, maybe not, but it doesn't relegate them to the welfare roles, either. I went to a sub par school that's literally in the middle of the Louisiana piney woods. Today, I own five businesses. Nothing stopped me from doing what I wanted to do.

    No, it's not. I read that as tongue in cheek. Even literally, she would have been making the point that they aren't good enough, not that they are kept out based on the color of their skin.

    You forgot music.

    Seriously, who is indoctrinating kids this way? The liberal teachers?

    The liberal teachers that voted for the biracial President? Please.

    I imagine Thurgood Marshall gets covered more in history classes than Run DMC, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Larry Allen do.

    Doesn't this mean that indoctrination would prevent someone from achieving this?

    I knew you meant Brad, though, but I had to mention that the statistical comparisons actually favor McNabb.

    If we think about what Limbaugh said, I believe he wanted to make it seem like he knew more about football than he really did, but to do it in a controversial way.

    If anything, McNabb has totally proven Limbaugh wrong. McNabb's stats this year are almost gaudy now that he apparently has 3 legit weapons to throw to (Brent Celek, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.) He's going to eclipse 30,000 total yards within two weeks barring injury, which is no small feat. He's currently 33rd all-time in passing yards.
    For being an injury prone QB, McNabb's stats are off the chart.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Of course you read it that way. However, replace, "white boys", with, "black boys", and you're going to read it as racist. I'm already aware of the Liberal hypocrisy.

    happens all the time. Saw it all my life. Anyone that doesn't believe it is in denial of what goes on in the real world.

    Yes, it does.

    Black boys need to step up their hockey game.

    Just think of what Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas, Colin Powell, Condi Rice, and Barak Obama could have become if this weren't the case.

    I believe I misspoke there.

    So you don't own 5 businesses because you indoctrinated to welfare, rap, and sports?

    Oh, so since they didn't fall into the same trap, the trap doesn't exist? Are you real?

    I wasn't raised to believe that the only options that I had were, welfare, dealing drugs, or professional sports. Please keep it straight. Also, I wasn't raised to believe that, "whitey", owed me something. If you think that culture doesn't exist, then you're certainly naive as to what's going on in the world.

    well if you want the level of the sport to drop this is an excellent idea.
