    No problem. In the last hour or so....your ability to post without falling prey to the bullshit monster has dramatically improved. Keep up the good work.

    Not bullshit.

    Truth.

    An "inconvenient truth" for race-baiters, no doubt.

    What do you think about the "privilege" of being racially discriminated against in Affirmative Action ? Being denied college asmissions, college financial aid, job hiring, job promotions, business loans ? In case you don't knwo what THIS "privilege" is, it's called BLACK privilege.

    I have no sense that I or my kids have been racially discriminated against by Affirmative Action. I've not been offered every job for which I applied; my three kids didn't gain admittance to every college to which they applied. I'm comfortable accepting that someone better suited got the job offers and school admittances. Also, whereas I've never experienced my race as being a reason why I was denied anything, I know of at least one instance where I observed a minority's being denied equal treatment/consideration because of nothing other than their race.

    Having answered your question, I have one for you. Seeing as you don't think that Affirmative Action programs as they are currently implemented are the means we should use to ensure that minorities are not denied access to opportunities on the basis of their race, what do you propose as an alternative that you think will better ensure that access to opportunities is equitably apportioned to seekers of those opportunities?

    I don't know you so I can't tell whether or not this is sarcasm. What I'm saying is for the exact same crime under very similar circumstances a black man is statistically more likely to be sentenced to more time in prison than a white man. So two guys with no record commit grand theft auto, right? One of those guys was black, the other white. The black guy has a good chance of being sentenced to more time in prison even though it was the same crime.

    Yes, I subscribe to the idea of White Privilege. It exists.

    No., I don't really care. It benefits me.

    Honest enough?

    I'm new here. And this " White privilege " premise is also new to me.

    Without appearing rude, please explain this premise.

    Explain to me the benefits that I have been afforded by this concept.
