    Simply put, black failure is tantamount to white privilege. Neither would, or could, exist without the other.

    Lol, really, Mexicans may have some resentment towards America thanks to the 19th Century land grabs. Go look up "los ninos heroes" of all cognate phrases.

    And not ONLY Canada Canadians get white privilege in America if I must be more clear.

    We can find common ground.

    You seem to agree racist pigs did and still do give preferential treatment to white applicants.

    I agree the government steps in with a not so gentle hand and tries to balance it.

    Unlike you, I have actually been to Mexico. On average, about 3-4 days per month for the past 15 years. I've seen on resentment even though I'm sure you could find it if you looked hard enough. All societies, regardless of race, nationality, religion, culture or any other human difference have their fair share of complete assholes. It's up to each of us to decide if we choose to focus upon those few negative examples or the majority of positive examples.

    Yeah, time working for the railroad gave me a real negative view and set me on picking Alaskan vacations.

    So you'd say in Mexico proper off the resorts there is a little anti U.S. sentiment but really not noticeable?

    Here is the problem: In the 1950s Blacks had to be better qualified than Whites to get the same job (if at all). Fifty years later, Blacks need not as qualified as Whites to get the same job. (This is demonstrated by the Disparate Impact laws created by the Courts.)

    This has resulted in de facto segregation in the workplace and education, where Blacks are hired and admitted without the skills necessary to compete on an equal basis with Whites. This causes resentment on both sides, which is tearing our society apart.

    Do we really want to institutionalize a caste system in our country, where each group is assigned a separate piece of the pie? Are we willing to sacrifice opportunity for equal results? Isn't that what communism was all about?

    These "temporary" measures have been with us half a century, yet the underlying cultural disparities in our society are greater than ever. How long can we continue down this path, and to what end?
