Affirmative Action / Re: This is why affirmative should remain in tact
« on: August 14, 2007, 12:36:57 AM »


i am.  you're a male and white.

You're one for two.

i don't care.  i say i'm two for two and since this is the internet, there's no way to prove otherwise.

whatever.  damned message boards.

Well given that I am the only one with access to the truth of the matter, my judgment trumps yours. 1 for 2.

This is why affirmative action should remain in tact (sic)!

Selfpwnage. I guess AA is good for getting illiterates like the OP into college.

And I guess male and white supremecy are good for getting illiterates like you into college.

Link?

Honestly, you'll get in everywhere you apply.

And who's to say I'm a male.. or white for that matter?

sc3pt0r is the voice of reason in this thread, and I admire his story and viewpoints.

Saradsun, I don't think you understood cjrosina's point on the previous page.

Why must the racial cross-section of top-tier law schools match that of the population? What are you a Marxist? What about individuals and individual achievements? Isn't that what the civil rights movement is all about? Seeing people as individuals and not as merely the member of some ethnic group?

The one drop rule was a joke, but derived from the fact that if you were "one drop" black during slavery, you would be considered black and consequently, a slave.  It has nothing to do with righting wrongs done in a foreign country, it has to do with the fact that they aren't "White".

By the way, I have no idea what exactly "White" means.  It appears as if the United States census considers Middle Easterners "White".  Those damn White Muslim terrorists!!!
We may see eye to eye on this issue (ultimately) but let me continue my method of questioning... Why does AA rely on skin color alone? Are there not other easily identifiable traits? What about asians? They aren't white.

Jews are easily identifiable by their big noses and curly hair, and they must overcome prejudices ("greedy jew", hate jews because "they killed jesus," no Jews allowed at Yale for the longest time, "money-grubber," etc.) I think they deserve a leg up, surely!


lol. I do have a sense of humor so i guess i will take the above comment as sarcasm. i mean you cant really believe that this is the type of discrimination i was talking about.
Actually I'm dead serious d00d.

Why do Mexicans get special treatment?  They are White and Indian...Same as how someone who is White and Black would get considered URM.  The one drop rule.
Mexicans' Indian blood comes from Indians south of the border. What does that have to do with us? Why are we obligated to remedy wrongs done by the Spanish centuries ago? By that same logic Jews should benefit because they were persecuted in a foreign land.

Affirmative Action / Re: In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants
« on: July 20, 2007, 10:53:51 PM »
Maybe it is the same reasoning used for D.C. residents, since you aren't a member of ANY state, they will grant you in-state tuition in EVERY state.

It's still BS...they should pay the International Student Rate. (The illegal immigrants, not the D.C. kids.)

Exactly. They're foreign nationals--documented to be here or not--so should pay the same as any other international student.
And they should have to apply for student visas... from their home country.. like every other foreign student.
