    is it racist to even look at AmRen?

    are those articles now invalid because AmRen compiled them?

    is it hatespeak to notice black incompetence unless it is being used as 'proof' of white racism?

    Sounds like Detroit is headed on the right path.

    Detroit is a national shrine to liberal Democratic policies.

    this reminds me of the 'redlining' case in Boston. banks and credit institutions were sued for having different lending criteria by race. it was considered racist EVEN THOUGH all the groups had the same default rate. lowering standards to allow more loans to minorities was a large factor in the cascade of poor practises that eventually led to the financial meltdown of 2008.

    actually it is fairly simple to show that groups with different average qualities need to be judged with different standards to achieve the same successful candidate selection. unfortunately that means that lower scoring groups like blacks and hispanics need HIGHER qualifications to perform at the same level. not politically correct.
