    especially in elite universities, and other school that practise AA, blacks are admitted with markedly lower qualifications, receive lower grades and pass independent qualification exams at a lower rate than other groups. is it reasonable to give them the same credit for a diploma when the chances are that they will underperform? would you chose a black doctor or lawyer knowing that they were close to the bottom of their class?

    Do you have any proof that these people will underperform?

    I have observed from your posts you are a racist. One post, two maybe, but you spend all your time stirring up racial arguments. I simply do not have the patience or the time to listen to worthless bullshit. I am putting you on ignore as that is the biggest insult I can give you on a message board, to show you that I simply don't care what you have to say. Worthless words come from worthless humans.

    they underperform at school and qualification exams. why do you think they would improve once they got a job?

    although I don't like anecdotes, the Bakke story is informative. after being denied a med school spot he managed to find a spot elsewhere the next year. he has had a long and successful career. the minority who took his spot had a short and disasterous career including numerous malpractise suits, some involved with patient death, and finally he was stripped of his medical license.

    that is your perogative. I have noticed that you have never been able to refute any of my ideas except to cry 'racist'!!!!!!

    can someone develop a reasonable argument against my OP? would anyone prefer the NFL to be racially proportional just to be politically correct? would the players still be as good overall or would the teams be at least somewhat worse?

    and I worry about the quality of my doctor much more than the quality of my favourite football team.

    They still have to make the grade. Just because they were offered a placement, does not guarantee their diploma.

    However, I do question the standards at some of the traditional "black colleges". Delaware State has a minimum SAT score of 800 for admission. They also accept students with GED's. My guess is just about anyone can get in.

    do you think there is a difference in quality between doctors who finish top 10% and those in the bottom 10%? if you choose a black doctor you are statistically likely to get a bottom rather than a top performer. do you think it is reasonable to make a choice for your personal well being based on knowledge that is 'hatefact'? are you willing to put your health at some (presumably small) risk to benefit affirmative action?

    I do have concerns over degrees supposedly earned by racists. How can they actually have done the work for a college degree and still graduate as racist assholes? Do racists get special treatment from racist professors? Does a degree awarded to a racist actually count?
    Why should I get the same diploma as some asshole racist? Doesn't that degrade the integrity of my degree?

    you bring up a good point. would you rather have someone who is more than just competent, someone who is exceptional to be your lawyer or doctor or tax accountant even though you didn't agree with their politics?
