Honey let me school you on something you should know by now: only a few people give a crap about poor people and much less poor non-white people.
If people REALLY cared? There would be no hungry kids in our country. There would be no reason for AA or anything else if the majority gave a **** but guess what? They do NOT!
We wanna act as if we can save the goddamn world while kids sitting up here in the U.S.A. are going to bed with no food to eat. We spend billions of helping other kids but we got people bitching about helping kids here at home? We really gonnna get all MAD about A.A.? REALLY????? How about direct your anger and outrage over something that matters. You know like taking care of people and the kids at home first!
But people wanna be all pissed cause we give someone an education, job, etc. to because they do deserve it?
What the hell is wrong with this picture? I will tell you what: it is all kinds of wrong to think people can simply rise out of the hood, it is simply wrong to suggest that because a "few" have done it that there is nothing stopping it.
The fact of the matter at hand is that racism and sexism is real and still here. All the while people that do not bitch about helping others outside our country are sitting here running off at the damn mouth about **** they know nothing about. Like Racism and Sexism.

When you are not the most qualified for a position, you are not qualified for that position, period.
This I can help you with...
Racist - noun
1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. <----- Hmmm Sounds like Affirmative Action. The dictionary must be racist!.
3.hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
No mention of not understanding a problem making you racist.
You cannot hope to understand a problem when you don't even understand the words involved.
