Look at the President we have, Affirmitive Action doesn't work!!!!Sotomayor is a racist. She tried to disqualify some white guys who scored higher on a test to be lt. of fire dept. Well they sued and won. Miss racist thought we should make the test easier for blks. than the rest. That in itself is racist.

Straight white christian men know they can't compete on a level playing field. Just look at what happened when they made the mistake of letting blacks into baseball & basketball & football. Thankfully blacks don't like the cold, so at least you still have hockey.

Affirmative Action elevates the worst scum of the Black race to supervisory and administrative positions because Blacks given power always turn to fear and cowardice, which is why African countries commonly have serial mass murderers and criminal Leftist thieves leading their nations. At every level in America, this has resulted in inferior leadership, weird and perverse behavior and the waste of good talent in lieu of Black monsters battering, assaulting and lying to put superior Whites into submission.

I'm talking about jobs and colleges not athletics.
The same test should be given to all.

Affirmative Action only encourages mediocrity.

Judge a man by the content of his character not the color of his skin.

The same test IS given to all applicants for jobs and/or college, regardless of race or gender or ethnicity or religion or sexual orientation.

I was saying they can't compete on a level playing field, which is why for decades they had laws specifically barring anyone who wasn't a straight white Christian male from most jobs and colleges and sports teams etc.

Ah, if only white men had done that, then maybe we wouldn't have had all those Jim Crow laws, and all the other laws which gave them preferential treatment over all others for decades.

But NOW all of a sudden you want everything equal?
