    Well, of course that's not a detailed accounting, but it's a good summary. Not true in every case, but true most of the time.

    I didn't think much of the one we just got rid of, so what's different? No need to wonder, it's right there in front of you.

    Here is a great article by a victim of affirmative action

    No, I'm trying to suggest that the test might have very little to do with actually doing the job.

    But being black does? How else do you decide who to promote?

    Why would a written test be the best indicator of who to promote?

    Re: Are You OK With A Racist President, Republicans?

    Just wondering who the racist potus is, the last one or this one?

    so today I read Romans 15:1-13
    Think about it.

    what would be better? written tests are what most places use for such promotions.

    Of course, being a racist was one of Obama's failings. That's one of the reasons I didn't like the guy.
    Not to mention being a child murdering war monger... so yeah. So much for making the first black presidency a good one.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    There is obviously a difference in the dictionary meaning, but not much in real life I don't think - the Venn diagram of racists, white supremacists, racial or ethnic bigots and white nationalists wouldn't be overlapping but close enough such that the distinction won't be very informative.
    Give it up. He's a nationalist who just so happens to be white.

    That does not make him a white nationalist. No matter how hard you try to claim him to be one. It's not going to come true.
