First of all, I never said anything about unqualified minorities, I made it clear that I was talking about minorities with equal grades.PattyG said:Really? The universities of America are being flooded with unqualified minorities and whites are being pushed out? That's not what any statistics show.
Look, it's totally naive to think that because the culture of the past was more overtly racist than it is now that we should all pretend like race isn't a factor. The famous metaphor for this is a footrace where one of the participants falls way behind because he's been running with shackles on his feet for the first half. Then the shackles come off and the other guy who gained a big lead is saying "Hey, it's a fair race now, it's a totally unfair double standard to let him catch up." Poor white people, let's all shed a tear.
Second of all, you spend a week on the University of Texas campus and tell me there are more Whites there than Asians, or Indians.
I'm not a racist, but I see what I see. That analogy of yours is laughable and doesn't speak for the whole picture. There's a civil rights act. If there's any discrimination in the workplace, said person is sued. I'm not going to tolerate double standards, regardless of history. I made that clear. I'm not going to be made to feel like I have to tolerate another race, or help them play catch up, that's just silly. I see every person, as a person. There is no race, we're all humans, there's so little difference between us genetically, and I'm choosing not to recognize it.
Just because shit happened in the past, doesn't mean I need to feel guilty or responsible for my great great grandfather's actions. And neither should a black man feel he deserves an apology for something that didn't happen actually happen to him personally, we're passed that already.
But you can bet your ass, if there was any real racial discrimination going on today, I'd be on the front line against it.
I've already spoken more on the subject than I ever want to, good day.
