    Because there were no black applicants because they would not have been accepted and/or because they didn't receive a good education in segregated schools.

    This is ****ing retarded. How can you possibly say that being black helped Obama get into law school in the 1980s while denying that being white helped Ike get into West Point in the 1910s? I think you know damn well this isn't true, and you're just in a trolling mood tonight.

    If you saddle your competition with DISADVANTAGES, then that IS an advantage. Don't be ridiculous.

    whites are the vast majority

    you still don't understand that point

    Ike got no advantage over the vast majority of applicants to WP by being white

    Obama got a big advantage over the vast majority of people applying to law school

    are you being dense?

    Because...Affirmative Action and similar racist programs didn't get Ike into West Point. He got in because he was QUALIFIED, and yes, he was white and that was also a "qualification" of sorts; it doesn't not however mean he was lacking in the other merits/qualifications for entrance to West Point.

    If I may summarize what you're saying here: "Racial advantages are bad only if the race in question is a minority race."
    Please, just stop digging yourself in deeper.

    True or false: NOT A SINGLE ONE of the 42 guys preceding Obama would have been president if they were black.
