The next time you complain, think about the tens of thousands of Asians and Jews in the 60s and even the 70s who even after succeeding academically and professionally at the zenith of achievement were denied admissions/promotions,etc because of their race and ethnicity. And try and think about the millions of black and hispanic kids who grow up in precarious homes, attend shoddy schools in rough neighborhoods and still make a 1200 on their SATs. I hope that the kids on the original posting of this thread who wanted to go to U of Michigan gets in, and if his/her achievements are of a high caliber, I'm sure that will happen. If it doesn't, try not to blame some kid who didnt have the same access that you had, but who still succeeded as much as he/she could. I wonder why we never see the blame game being directed to the jocks, the kids of alumni, those with connections, etc. Its because it is so much easier to identify the easy targets.
So youre basically saying that colleges should punish us as whites now, because something happened 30-40 years before I applied to school. Congratulations to those kids that get 1200s and live in crappy neighborhoods, but if they are getting 1200s, why do they belong at Michigan? How does that happen? There are excellent schools that would die for kids with 1200s. I dont see how a poor kid with a 1200 is the same as rich kid with a 1500...dont give me that, "Oh, they were poorly raised," "Oh, they couldnt attend SAT class"....Common cries of the Liberal...Trust me, if they want to go to an SAT class they can go to one. Very few kids actually get private tutors for the SATs, and those that do often are the ones that struggle. Lets cry for a minute for the kid that got a 1200 and was raised in a poor neighborhood...Oh, never mind that kid somehow gets into Michigan because of his race and economic status and not his acheivements, it is the liberal hand-out mentality (hey, his parents probably voted for the democrats!)
I vote for equality and there is no equality created in AA, people get shafted, in favor of someone inferior.
Those yellow dog racist Democrats of the past who resisted every attempt at integration are the Conservative southern republicans of today, and frankly, they have barely changed.
Are you joking? If anything black dem politicians (Jacko, Wrangell, MCKINNEY, Mosley-Braun) are far more racist today than any white "southern" republican. A southern republican gets called "racist" if he insinuates anything that has to do with Af-American responsibility...A black politician is called noble and just if he makes a general statement where the "whites are keeping the blacks down" You and many people on a.net live in a false reality, where whites and the rich are always to blame for everything, when in fact people create and live their own lives. I'm just so tired of hearing this crap.
America's chickens are coming home to rooooost!
