    Sharpton was on O'Reilly last night talking about this article. It's a good read; thought many of you would appreciate it:

    This is a long article to read, but worth it. Here is another paragraph that I thought was interresting enough to pull out.

    Everytime the black leadership cries racism because black students aren't doing as well on tests they're hurting there own future generations.


    Only their weakness justifies the racial preferences they receive decades after any trace of anti-black racism in college admissions. The young man must not show faith in the power of his people to overcome against any odds; he must show faith in their inability to overcome without help. As Mr. Connerly points to far less racism and far more freedom and opportunity for blacks, the young man must find a way, against all the mounting facts, to argue that black Americans simply cannot compete without preferences. If his own forebears seized freedom in a long and arduous struggle for civil rights, he must argue that his own generation is unable to compete on paper-and-pencil standardized tests.
