Just what we need, more forced 'diversity.' How about we judge people by the merits, not their diverseness?

I didn't do drama in school, but we did do opera naked. The good thing about singing opera in the nude, when you hit the high notes, you really see it in the genitals.

If you want to close the achievement gap something must be done about the perception in the American-Afrikan community about education. It is not valued to the degree it should be. Blacks trying to do well for themselves are labeled as "trying to be white".
