Wow, just wow. Amazing the hatred that is spewed in the name of "equality" and religion.

The laws of nature, which for those of you god-FEARING folks ARE the laws of your "God", display an amazingly stronger sense of tolerance and equality than man ever seems to. How incredibly sad that is.

I can only hope the human race evolves beyond its current level.

The state where I presently live and my home state both have huge African American populations and the African Americans who want to work are working and those who don't are not. I am surrounded by 5 African American families. One family works and the other 4 hang around working on vehicles, racing them up and down the street, drinking beer, smoking dope and generally partying. And that is a fair evaluation of the general African American population of this state. There will never be equality in the minds of the African Americans because it is ingrained in their mindset. The people of Hispanic and Far Eastern ancestry are far more motivated than African Americans. Have a good day.

Because they refuse to work hard in school or stop being criminals. If they do well in school they get abused by OTHER blacks for being "too white". They also seem to enjoy and celebrate criminals in Afrocentric culture and music. Slavery has nothing to do with the statistical poverty of their group.

Billy Joe, I am sure living in Mississippi there are more "African Americans" by far than there is in Arizona. This bill is to end all discrimination no matter what skin color you may be.

I voted in the poll wrongly; I thought no was to say no to affirmative action, but it was to say no to 107. So the numbers on the poll are skewed.

I say no to affirmative action, because I've lost 3 goverment jobs because of it--on as a fireman, one as a garbageman, and one as an office employee.

As a result, I have slaved my life away, and ain't got dittle to show for it--so the "slaves" issue is a no-gamer as we are all slaves, now.--except the rich people.

Moreover, when I needed help from any social services, I couldn't get it because I am white, law-abiding, and unaddicted. Not even emergency food stamps--"you're a white man, you can get a job," they said.

A black man walked in while I was wondering what to do; they not only filled out all the proper applications for him, but had 3 people helping him find a HOUSE to live in. By the end of the day he was approved for all welfare benefits, received emergency food stamps, and was transported to the food bank to fill up--at the end of the week I happened to be walking past the house he was put in: all utilities paid, no leaks, good paint and plaster. He offered to rent me a room for $100 a month.

I am not against equal opportunity, and anti discrimination, but affirmative action is illegal and should have never been allowed due to it being discriminatory.

Sure wish I'd known President
Reagan had made it legal to sue the government if you could prove you lost a job due to affirmative action.

It is something that happens all the time here. Not just to me.

That's not the point. The point is to end affirmative action, and give a equal playing ground for all, regardless of whether you are a man, woman, or skin tone.

Equal playing ground for all? Does that mean that there were just as many white slaves as there were black?

unemployment is 20 percent circumstance and 80 per cent choice. Illegals overcome these by getting out early in the morning and staying at it till the early afternoon, seeking, seeking, seeking till they find.

Most americans of all races that want something for nothing will either get on the dole, sell drugs or other things that would keep them on the unemployment roster.

No, just as there were an unequal amount of Black slave owners, and there were Black slave owners.

Unemployment is covered by workman's comp--for a short while, unless you have strong unions. Disemployment or lack of finding employment is a whole different story.

You obviouly don't know illegals, if you did you'd know those that work had the job before coming here--others are criminals (of course now, in Arizona, they are all felons). Which makes associating with them a criminal offense.

If you want to work for food, without healthcare, abiding by goverment standards etc, etc--then anyone can find a job that will pay enough to live like a slave or refugee. Real refugees get help.

If you think we live in a social society where people can get on the dole because they want to--you are quite mistaken. The dole does not pay enough to cover cost of living, and moreover, to get on it you muist prove three ways to hell that you are more disabled than retarded. They want you institutionalized first, before they will even give out medical care. In other words, there is no help in america AND ESPECIALLY ARIZONA to keep people who are struggling from becoming dependent on the system--usually people turn to crime before it gets that far, and thereby become a burden when caught.

Think about it, by IQ alone 1/4 of all people are mentally retarded, by statistics 1/5 are mentally ill, and 1/7 are physically disabled (more now with the soldiers surviving war) YET even in inner city manhattan (projects area) ONLY 185 OF THE POPULATION IS ON WELFARE.

Go volunteer in a soup kitchen, if you are still capable of learning. Your statistics are highly skewed.

Oh, and to pull you back on topic. White people make up 78% of the impoverished people in America, but only 10 - 15 % of the people on welfare. Arizona is even worse.

I lost 3 jobs due to affirmative action in Tucson, and when I was first homeless at the age of 17 des told me I was a white man i can get a job.

All of the times I've been unemployed I did not qualify for any kind of help, even when homeless--while minorities (especially blacks) were catered to adn didn't even have to prove need or disability to get it.

You want to see how hard it is to find work that is completely legal and above board in Arizona that will pay the rent and food--try doing it without an address, phone, transportation, or bank account.

I am currently a couch-crasher (homeless). How did I get that way--I graduated from college without a job, or a place to live. How did I stay that way, isn't it obvious from what I've said.

About college and affirmative action. There are all kinds of scholarships for minorities but ones for poor whites or males are illegal for accredited institutions to accept.

I had to pay for mine with loans--loans taxpayers are now paying for because I can't.
Not really
