If you mean Affirmative Action by income based criteria and not race based the answer is yes.I'll wait for you Libbies to agree.
The TP passed a law in Az. " No gov't preferences in hiring based on race , gender , ethnicity etc". Such as minorities getting a 7% cushion on contract bidding ( leveling the field).
I like the way you Lefty-Libs knock any black who wonders off the Plantation (deranged blacks).
You know what I meam...like NPR did to Juan Williams. Plus the past attacks on Clarence Thomas for wondering off the Plantation.
First of all, nutcase, the word you are searching for is wandering, not wondering. Wondering is what I am doing regarding your sanity.
Any special considerations that may be given to Blacks now couldn't begin to make up for the inequities they have had to endure since our country came into being. They are still quite some distance away from that level playing field, just as are other persecuted segments of our society, based on such criteria as ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), sexual orientation,etc.

You like to suggest that Liberals are enslaving Black people and keeping them on the "plantation". The truth however, is that the bigoted right wingnuts are the ones who treat them with uncaring disdain. It is no coincidence that Blacks and other targets of intolerance gravitate toward the Democratic party.

The few Blacks who have joined your side are deranged, not because they are black, but because they have aligned themselves with Republicans and teabaggers, nearly all of whom have wandered off the planet.

I know where Adam comes from. We have talked several times. Not everyone can be bought off. Even Republicans are finding the people elected with the help of the Taxed Enough Already people are different. I live in the 11th. I saw what Debbie did, and did not do. Republicans just took 65 Democrat seats. You have to be pretty angry to completely change partys, so I doubt the Democrats will be calling for anything America wants in 2 years. If Republicans learned anything at all they learned to listen to the people. Or they are gone too.

So your claim of a level playing field is propaganda.

No doubt past abuse has occured but surely an elected black POTUS shows that significant progress is apparent and time to backoff special selection rules.
Where the rules have been repealed the Asian community makes out better than any other in competitive selection and they weren't part of the problem or cause of black history

That leaves the question you raised as to what does meet the criteria of a level playing field . You mentioned it and then ran away from it with selective special protected groups.

I'm for AF by income from ZIP code data , by HS graduation rates per school etc. but not by race. If a low income ZIP code is mixed , black , white or brown so be it. But it's time to move on from race based divisive rhetoric and stick with improving everyones chances not one based on old history or politics.

I'll stick with my claim of plantation politics it as obvious as a full moon. Obama also endorses Barrio politics as his comment to Latinos about voting for the enemy. So Obama declares votes for Sandoval , Martinez and Rubio voting for the enemy. Take your choice Dem. Barrio or Plantation politics ( don't you dare wander off...you're a traitor).

First of all, if you are going to respond to my posts, I would appreciate it if you would allow my entire comment to be seen, and not edit out what you please.

Perhaps the most egregious flaw, among others, in your reasoning, is your apparent obliviousness to the gross inequality in educational opportunities in our country. If a person does not have access to a quality education, chances are that he or she will have a lesser chance of qualifying for a better job.

Returning to your "plantation" fiction, I like to see people as individuals, free to make individual choices. You are suggesting that Blacks are being brainwashed by White Liberals, as though they were not competent to make intelligent choices. In so doing, you are betraying your own disrespectful view of Black people. The truth is that Blacks gravitate toward the left because they are aware that the left is on the side of average people, including so-called minorities, which include those whom you stereotype.

You don't want me to chop your responses but you fail to read all of mine.

I stated AF by ZIP code income and Ed. assistance by H.S. disrict graduation rates. Both address concerns in a race neutral method.

As to my use of the phrase " Planatation Politics " I picked up on it from members of the black community.
Examples:
* Larry Elder a black radio-TV commentator who is from the streets of L.A. His politics in generally libertarian self-responsibily.

*Herman Cain: Former CEO of Godfather's Pizza . Born and raised in Memphis and he went to Morehouse Col in Atlanta.

* Anita MonCrief : She is quite Liberal and held a senior position in ACORN. She used the term " Plantation Politics " to describe the lack of action taken by the ACORN board of directors when it was revealed that Dale Ratke had embezzled somewheres between $1-4 million form ACORN. Dale is the brother of ACORN founder Wade Ratke ( x-SDS'er).

As pertaining to the belief that elitist paternalistic white liberals think minorities cannot govern themselves... yup I do believe that.
Starting with LBJ and continuing on in recent times to Barney Franks setting the bar lower for minority banks to fail than non-minority banks in the recent Financial Reform Law.

One more phrase " Strayed off the reservation ".
That phrase has been recently used on the firing of Ric Sanchez and Juan Williams pertaing to elitie white liberals who felt that both had strayed away from stereo typed minority behavior .

..and you call me disrespectful because I believe racial politics is divisive and wrong.... figures doesn't it ?

How is being race neutral a bias ?

If by "race neutral" you mean race is irrelevant to your judgement of people, that's fine by me. Unfortunately there are large numbers of people in this country who don't see things that way. That results in racial (and other) minorities being treated as less than equal, and as undifferentiated multi-headed units. That is why, in many cases, they are not afforded the opportunities available to others, and that is why steps must be taken to make opportunities truly equal.

He's a tea-bagger???? Wow! He certainly doesn's fit the "profile."

He looks like an opportunist - just like me :)
