The problem is that socioeconomic factors is just a liberal 'house of cards' used to explain West Africans strange behavior.<quoted text>
Several black folks I'm friendly with told me they were insulted that AA policies are still in place which would imply they can't compete on their intellect alone.
I agree that AA and quota's based on the pigment of one's skin should be eliminated. Merit not race based quota's should be the criteria for college admissions and employment. I believe AA has hurt America to some degree.
However, I am open to a policy that would help students who work hard and get good grades, but come from a low socio-economic background. This way race is not a factor. This would help good students who are from poor families be able to get into a decent university.
West Virginia proves without a doubt that being destitute doesn't make you run out, get an AK-47 and start killing people nor does it make folks rape every woman in sight....
Culture and IQ are the real factors here..
