    RACIAL LIES AND RACISM
    The real beneficiaries of ending affirmative action practices won't be white students.
    August 29, 2017

    ...

    The experience of California, where racially discriminatory admissions policy has been reduced, suggests that if Ivy League universities were prohibited from using race as a factor in admissions, the Asian-American admissions rate would rise while the percentages of white, black and Hispanic students would fall. Diversity-crazed college administrators would throw a hissy fit. By the way, diversity-crazed administrators are willing accomplices in the nearly total lack of racial diversity on their basketball teams. It's not unusual to watch games in which there's not a single white, Hispanic or Asian player.

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says, "The idea of discriminating against Asians in order to make room for other minorities doesn't seem right as a matter of principle." Dershowitz is absolutely right, but he goes astray when he argues that investigating discrimination against whites raises a different set of questions. He says, "Generically, whites have not been the subject of historic discrimination." Dershowitz's vision fails to see people as humans, because what human is deserving of racial discrimination?

    ‘Affirmative action’ is the hobgoblin of little conservative minds.

    Until someone comes up with a way to change the genes of blacks to make them more intelligent, Affirmative Action will still be needed to compensate for their congenitally lower IQ.

    If they weren't born that way, we'd demand they step up, rather than demand that society lowers standards for them.

    Apparently you were the lone white person in your group that was stupid enough to believe the nonsense that you typed.
    Affirmative action has never been used as any gateway to opportunities for minorities based on I.Q. and it's apparent that you will not be able to produce any legal or scientific link to support your ignorant lie.
    Black people and other minority groups, mainly white women have enjoyed access to higher education, careers, unions, etc because the privileged lower hanging undeserving whites such as yourself are being removed from the equation. So now we have trump and you believe that your undeserved place at the trough is coming back...lol.
    Guy, your time has passed, get up off your lazy fat ass and get an education; then maybe you can compete and stop blaming affirmative action for your own intellectual and educational shortcomings...

    "Your ignorant lie" is right. I speak the educated truth. Affirmative Action is nothing but compensation for lower performance. And, the performance gap can't be closed no matter how much money and preferences we throw blacks. But, Jews, Asians, Indians, etc. don't need AA because they preform up to par.

    You believe blacks are the dumbest people on the planet, and that's why you don't expect more from them. Instead, you demand that we lower our requirements for them.

    Here's the thing. Indians, Jews, Asians were never slaves. Yes, they've all suffered various levels of discrimination, but nothing like the 400 years of stupidity black people have had to endure.

    A study was done in 2005, where mock resumes with identical qualifications were sent out. Half of them had typical white names like "Greg" and "Emily", and half had black names like "Jamal" and "Lakeisha". To no one's surprise, the white names got 50% more callbacks from employers.

    Now, that said, i think there are some problems with affirmative action. The black kid from the middle class family doesn't really need it, but he's more likely to be the beneficiary of it. The poor kid (of whatever race) is put at a disadvantage in that he gets hobbled from childhood with poor education.

    One's ancestors several generations removed has no impact on our lives. Even our own parents disadvantages shouldn't have much impact on us if we're fed and educated.

    Other ethnic groups have had great hardship. Many of them very recently. Yet, they have no trouble in America, even immigrants who have to learn the language and the culture.

    1. I don't trust libtard researchers trying to prove racism (it's easy to bias studies).
    2. Racial preferences devalue black resumes (e.g. college admission requirements are different).
    3 Radical black names suggest the person will cause trouble (how can someone named Lakeisha not have been raised with a racial attitude).

    Companies care about money, not race.

    Poor whites are the most screwed in this society. But, how is a poor black at a disadvantage? The poor black gets three times as much spent his education than the poor white, plus racial preferences everywhere he turns.

    Nah, Jews never spent 400 Years as slaves in Egypt, nor were they ever Slaves in Babylon. You are going on IGNORE because you are too fucking stupid and dishonest to talk to. And Indians (Native Americans or over in Actual India) Both were Slaves and Slave Masters. And there is a long, long history of Slavery in Asia.

    You are one dumb IGNORANT RACIST SON OF A BITCH!

    History of slavery in Asia - Wikipedia
    Slavery in India - Wikipedia
    Slavery among Native Americans in the United States - Wikipedia
    Babylonian captivity - Wikipedia
    The Egyptian Holocaust
    The Holocaust - Wikipedia

    Do you know who is the Single Largest Culture which promotes Slavery Throughout The World, and even has adopted it as a Religious Right?

    ISLAM.


    Islam also started the African Slave Trade.

    Here is a snippet regarding their Asian Slave Trade from WIKI:


    The early Arab invaders of Sind in the 8th century, the armies of the Umayyad commander Muhammad bin Qasim, are reported to have enslaved tens of thousands of Indian prisoners, including both soldiers and civilians.[2][3] In the early 11th century Tarikh al-Yamini, the Arab historian Al-Utbi recorded that in 1001 the armies of Mahmud of Ghazna conquered Peshawar and Waihand (capital of Gandhara) after Battle of Peshawar (1001), "in the midst of the land of Hindustan", and captured some 100,000 youths.[4][5] Later, following his twelfth expedition into India in 1018–19, Mahmud is reported to have returned with such a large number of slaves that their value was reduced to only two to ten dirhams each. This unusually low price made, according to Al-Utbi, "merchants [come] from distant cities to purchase them, so that the countries of Central Asia, Iraq and Khurasan were swelled with them, and the fair and the dark, the rich and the poor, mingled in one common slavery". Elliot and Dowson refers to "five hundred thousand slaves, beautiful men and women.".[6][7][8]
