    Re: Is racism wrong?

    Now that I give this some thought---I may feel racism is wrong, --but to be perfectly Honest, if other people feel differently than I do about the subject, I really can't say they are wrong in doing so. Who am I to judge??

    Policies based on race are racist?
    That's a misconception, you'd need to look at the particulars to establish if a policy is racist or not.
    Both quotas and AA are policies based on race.
    Quotas are illegal in the US, because someone who does not meet specified qualifications may be preferred to someone who does solely based on 'race' - this is not so with AA.

    There are no "common" dreams or goals for the future. Never have been; never will be. This is utopianist, anti-intellectual pap.

    You proceed from an extremely flawed concept of human nature.

    One of the biggest objections I have with my School education, is they taught us "Utopia" is impossible. They are wrong. It just takes better People to pull it off.

    Because it's open to the public and someone was probably messing round. It's a problem that occurs with the "polls" section from time to time.

    Yes, of course. Anything the socialist promote is always wrong.
