More like a 'landmark cop-out'. Imagine the furor if the Boy Scouts were to announce that they would leave it to each chapter to decide whether Jewish kids will be accepted into the BS ... or Black kids ...!

Such a scenario puts their contemplated half-assed decision into proper perspective. While some might see it as progress, I think their bigotry is so ingrained that they cannot even think straight. They should be forced to loose more major sponsors until they accept FULL equality nationwide.
