Companies are already hiring criminals, they just are careful to only hire white criminals. Whites with criminal records get jobs before blacks with no criminal record and some college level education. Mr. Clegg should try researching why his statement makes a fool out of himself. Police and firefighter testing should be proctored by third party educators, not senior individuals in either institution who plays 'favors' based on race. The testing should be completely free from any form of bias that slants the test in favor of any racial demographic. The rest of what he said is hogwash, air pollution is monitored by the EPA equally, and the most credit worthy, richest businessmen in this country were financially bailed out!

It is impossible to dumb sh!t down enough so that blacks can compete with Whites. These scumbags need to stop prattling on about "level playing fields", as blacks and non-White latrinos can't compete with Whites on level playing fields. That's why they require lowered, pretty much non-existent "standards" for them and hefty doses of affirmatove action handouts and handups.

AA is needed because of racist whites from back in the day. Until whites stop being hateful and racist AA must remain in place.

Although liberals were the architects of most affirmative action policies, they seem unwilling to mount a spirited defense of it in the face of the right's multi-pronged attack. The right's use of the "color blind" standard to attack affirmative action has not been adequately challenged, and liberals have not argued the existence of institutional racism to explain the need for affirmative action. Liberal Democratic Party officeholders, who have access to the resources and media exposure necessary to conduct effective public education, have, for the most part, been unwilling to expend political capital in defense of affirmative action.

AA is needed until all white folks in power stop being racist and hating. When this happens then AA can go away. Sooooo with that being said AA is here to STAY because whitey can never stop being hateful and racist enough to be fair to everyone that is not white.
