    Well rappers and young people who call females "bitches and "Ho's" set such a good example for our young black men. And you then mention sexism?

    Re: Affirmative Action

    Rap is just like the hippies that did rock n roll back in the day. Haters gonna hate no matter what. Don't hate and appreciate the artform that is rap.

    ETA: I hardly think someone that calls women the c word has any right to judge anything much less call out rappers.

    If you want to call some guy with his pants hanging down to his ass crack and a wall clock on his chest an artist, you are free to. If you want to call some guy talking about "busting a cap in a nigga's ass" art, you are free to.

    I will stick to old Motown. When the music still had some soul and the artists were just that.

    And no they are nothing like the "hippies" back in the day. They had talent. They sang a song without all the swearing and violence in the lyrics.

    I don't do it in front of thousands of young people.

    And again with the personal attacks.

    Re: Affirmative Action

    Getting back to the issue of A.A. I simply cannot wrap my head around the "why" have an issue with it. Lots of people in this thread have made good points and ones I have heard before but it does not change the reality that AA is needed.

    Why can't people understand it is needed? I think think this is the main reason WHY it is still needed is because people do not understand we still have racism.

    Re: Affirmative Action

    AA is not needed because it is causing the racial divide to widen. It is saying blacks, hispanics and women cannot compete on an equal playing field.

    No one is saying no racism exist, we ARE saying it is no longer an obstical.

    That is unless you want to sit on your lazy ass and not go out and work hard for what you want. No reason in this country exist anymore. Not even racism or sexism can stop you if you really want it. I and thousands, no millions of successful Hispanics, blacks and women etc. prove this every single day.
