    Affermative action has outlived it's usefullness.

    Yes, there was a time when people were denied entry into jobs and schools because of color or sex. But, the schools should never had lowered there accademic expectations in order to admit people. That's where they went wrong. They should have put everyone on equal footing and that's it, no special treatment, no doctored tests.

    There are always going to be jobs where some groups are under represented for whatever reason. If there arn't a lot of women in high positions in corporate america it's not necessarily because there's a problem, it's also a choice of some women not to work 80 hour weeks, some of us want to raise our children instead of the nanny.

    If femamists are discusted because some women choose to work parttime and raise good kids that's their problem.

    This is absolutely correct. This is essentially the white position on minorities: they pity them, and at the same time, call them equals. But they are not equals, as proven by the pity.

    Larry Summers got into big trouble because he broached the most taboo topic in our society: the possibility that races and sexes are different not because of "oppression," "economic conditions" or "cultural constructs," but because they are inherently, biologically different. He gets a bye because "sex" is not as controversial as "race," and, he's the Jewish president of Harvard and will have defense from the Jewish publication "Commentary." If he'd been a white gentile making the statement about race, he wouldn't be apologizing right now, he'd be on the welfare line.
