    I originally posted this in This Thread, but I think it speaks to a broader issue worth discussing beyond just the firefighter case.

    Are black people actually victimized (i.e. held back) by affirmative action because over time it has conditioned them to believe they don't really have to compete with whites in the workplace? :eusa_think:

    Of course they are. If I did everything for my kids, they would never learn anything and become spoiled brats.

    One thing I've noticed in Little Rock is that there are so few black fathers present with their kids. Where are they? I once heard that they aren't needed because the government has taken their place. Hmmmm.

    Actually it was NPR. They were discussing a book allegedly written by your hero Hillary Clinton. It really surprises me that you don't own a gold embossed, autographed copy of it.
