I think minorities should be required to utilize those doctors, lawyers, contractors... as a stipulation of Affirmative Action. I think We The Sheeple should for sure.

<quoted text>FYI there are more Caucasian people on welfare, food stamps, and section 8 housing in this country. There is nothing wrong with these aspects of the social safety net. Most are elderly or physically\mentally unable to work. I don't want them to starve in the streets no matter what their ethnic background.

Your sense of entitlement never fails to amaze me. You cry and whine about paying the small amount of taxes that you do. You reap the benefits of being a United States citizen, but don't want to give back. Pathetic.
FYI, there SHOULD be more whites on those programs, considering they comprise 72% of this country!

They want to blame Republicans on one hand and then take credit when Republicans were forced to put the breaks on the maniac's driving!

You are incorrect.
Welfare:
Blacks = 39.8%
Whites = 38.8%
Hispanics = 15.7%
Asians = 2.4%
Other = 3.3%
Food Stamps have nearly 19% of its recipients that do not reveal their race. Any stats there are unreliable at best.
Go to the Govt Food Stamp websites. Massively increasing the number of people who operate under the premise....
Ask not what you can do for your Country..Ask how must the Govt can force your neighbors to sacrifice for You.....is the new paradime in Obama's Amerika.

Lmao! You tell part of the story. Answer the rest of the story. If those minorities were equally qualified, why did Affirmative Action also grade their college entrance exams with a more favorable formula?
You have yet to offer any evidence that occurred.

Once you provide proof of that which can be independently verified, then we can continue the discussion.

Otherwise it's just another of you many claims of "fact".

Except of course you didn't.

Show me the different scoring formula for SAT or ACT which gives minorities a higher score for the same answers as you claimed.

Until you can do that, it's just another of your many lies.

I don't use incompetent people regardless of their race.

My current primary care physician is an Indian-American. The first 3 doctors I was referred to were all white and all incompetent; they seemed more interested in my level of insurance coverage than my health.

Obviously you still don't understand the link between poverty and qualifying for those programs.

If a greater percentage of minorities live in poverty, then a greater percentage of minorities will qualify for those programs.

Racism, generational wealth theft, institutionalized discrimination, and biased educational funding are all responsible for the continuing racial inequities in income.

Who stole your money? If you don't like the way your tax money is spent talk to those responsible.
Maybe your father is not an example of white privilege. If he were African American and in his circumstances do you think that he would have faired better?

What is your point? No one disputes that ratcheting up Racial hatred and the whole Class Warfare thing hasn't benefited the Administration.
You are fighting a fight you already WON.

OK. So why do you want to cut those programs? Why do you insinuate that only minorities use them?

Lol! We have already established that you will accept nothing short of people posting their personal information on the Internet as proof. That is not going to happen. Not because it is not true, but because people are not stupid enough to post their personal info online.

No, you claim there is a separate grading formula for the SAT or ACT based on your race.

You should easily be able to provide that formula without having to post any personal information of anyone taking the exam.

I've looked at everything I can find about the ACT & SAT testing and I've never seen ANYTHING which references a different scoring formula based on the race of the individual taking the test as you keep claiming.

So? Where is this magic "formula"?

But wait, all the minorities are the best qualified according to you. You should have no problem utilizing them for all your medical, legal, and building needs!

Sure I do. But you fail to explain why blacks are over represented in those programs despite all the special treatment they receive. Not to mention, most on those programs are living better than the average working stiff.
It's all excuses!

I have NEVER insinuated that only minorities use those programs! Please give a post number where I did!
You liberals can not debate without putting words in your opponent's mouth.

I want to end those programs because the simply enable those who would defraud the system. Regardless of race! People who utilize those programs live as well if not better than the average working person. Why would they be motivated to go work for the same or lesser lifestyle?

It is always hilarious to see die hard fanatics who know they are supposed to hate Obama, but can't seem to figure out why.
Here you are, after bush drives the economy off a cliff, and the nation's economy is sitting in a heap at the bottom of a ditch; trying to claim Obama was a maniac driver and bragging that the GOP has refused to allow the tow truck to be called. You must be very proud of all the money you have stolen.
Everyone knows oscumma has tanked this nation.....except maybe the stupid and the mooches. They will continue holding their hands out while the nation tumbles into the abyss.
