Americans by a two-to-one margin (63% to 30%) say affirmative action programs designed to increase the number of black and minority students on college campuses are a “good thing,” according to a new Pew Research poll. Blacks and Hispanics overwhelmingly support affirmative action and a majority of whites do, too.(Sample size for Asians is too small to be statistically significant.) Overall, support is nearly unchanged from 2003.

not what you expected i imagine. but you'd be hard pressed to find any issue that polls the way conservatives would like.
LOL

So people who qualify for affirmative action approve of it,why wouldn't they?

Because there are more woman in college then men should we give greater consideration to men when reviewing applications?

Maybe we should go to Japan or China to combat Asian privilege?LOL

Too late. Moses holding the Ten Commandments is sculpted on the east side of the Supreme Court building representing one of two other great lawgivers.
Then there's the etching of the Ten Commandments in wood on a wall inside the Supreme Court building.
Not to mention the many other Christian references in art and plaques located all around D.C.
A lot of people must have once thought we were, in fact, a Christian nation.
All presidents, including this one, end every major speech with "God bless the United States of America". Don't think they're referring to Buddha, Mohammed or Krishna.
Progressive communistic liberals just hate what they can't control.
People like you used to believe the earth was flat too, but progressives led them out of the darkness.

While a majority (55%) of whites support affirmative action programs on campus, that compares with 84% of blacks who believe they are a good thing and 80% of Hispanics. Nearly eight-in-ten (78%) Democrats back the programs as a good thing, as do 62% of independents; Republicans are mixed, with 50% seeing the racial preferences as a bad thing and 43% viewing them as a good thing.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Tea party PACs reap money for midterms, but spend little on candidates

When the Tea Party Patriots threw its support last month behind Matt Bevin, the underdog conservative challenger trying to unseat top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell, President Jenny Beth Martin vowed the group would be “putting our money where our mouth is.”

So far, its super PAC has mustered just $56,000 worth of mailers in Kentucky on Bevin’s behalf — less than half the amount it has paid Martin in consulting fees since July.

The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, which blew through nearly $2 million on expenses such as fundraising, polling and consultants in the first three months of this year, is not alone in its meager spending on candidates.

A Washington Post analysis found that some of the top national tea party groups engaged in this year’s midterm elections have put just a tiny fraction of their money directly into boosting the candidates they’ve endorsed.

The practice is not unusual in the freewheeling world of big-money political groups, but it runs counter to the ethos of the tea party movement, which sprouted five years ago amid anger on the right over wasteful government spending. And it contrasts with the urgent appeals tea party groups have made to their base of small donors, many of whom repeatedly contribute after being promised that their money will help elect conservative politicians.

Out of the $37.5 million spent so far by the PACs of six major tea party organizations, less than $7 million has been devoted to directly helping candidates, according to the analysis, which was based on campaign finance data provided by the Sunlight Foundation.

The dearth of election spending has left many favored tea party candidates exposed before a series of pivotal GOP primaries next month in North Carolina, Nebraska, Idaho and Kentucky.

Roughly half of the money — nearly $18 million — has gone to pay for fundraising and direct mail, largely provided by Washington-area firms. Meanwhile, tea party leaders and their family members have been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in consulting fees, while their groups have doled out large sums for airfare, a retirement plan and even interior decorating.

The lavish spending underscores how the protest movement has gone professional, with national groups transforming themselves into multimillion-dollar organizations run by activists collecting six-figure salaries.

so who here has given money to the Tea Party? you got taken.

I don't use that term either nor have I used your words below.

You have had your fair share of Uncle Toms, "faux" blacks and hate whitey posts.

You are attempting to promote that racism is a one way street. It isn't, it flows both way.
