    What's Jim Crow?

    A law in Michigan banning affirmative action.

    Not much need be said here, except to point out that "civil rights" never was about racial equality. If you once thought it was, you now have no excuse.

    Check out the video George Will links to, by the way. Blacks, liberals and friends have license to commit violence against whites. What do you have, white folks?

    You should have seen BAMN last year. Scary stuff, honestly. Since I go to U of M, there are lots of MCRI / anti-MCRI groups floating around, and I expect it to get even more extravagant in November. There will be more rallies, of that I'm sure.

    *Is starting to wonder if 'white liberal' is thought of as an outlier nowadays*

    Bamn is a front for a much scarier, Detroit-based movement. :) You grow to get used to them, though.

    I just tell them I'm late for class (which is usually true) and walk off.

    And I was thinking of having Jimmy John's today, but I decided to brave the Union instead. :p:

    I support affirmative action, but it has flaws. Affirmative action helps middle class blacks more than anything. We need a program that can help the prospects of the large percentage of blacks living below the poverty line...that is the only way the cycle of black poverty can be stopped.

    The thought may seem extreme, but you are not too far off. I wrote a 20 page thesis last year on the potential of race riots in the U.S. I mostly researched the riots in France and U.S. riots of the 60's.

    In the status quo, America is vulnerable to riots. If we did away with quotas and affirmative action, the racial disparities in America would spiral out of control and we would most certainly have racial violence.

    A word of warning 1549, there ARE thorns on those roses.

    Wake up.............:fifty:

    Remember New Orleans, the "Bridge people", the anger toward rescuers, the demand for help.

    Help is only appreciated by those willing to help themselves.

    Katrina showed us the offspring of hundreds of years of racial tension.

    I realize that the government can not just offer a helping program and expect immediate success. However, withdrawing programs like affirmative action and refusing to lend a helping hand is even worse. Turning a blind eye can have very serious consequences.

    There is not an easy answer, but the issue has to be dealt with.
