Stole Your Nose I appreciate your response, although I was not shocked that racist black people attacked me for my expressing my views on affirmative action. As you correctly pointed out, AA discriminates against one race (or sex) at the expense of another. Whether or not the race happens to be a minority or majority is completely irrelevant to the obvious fact that all forms of discrimination are wrong. AA is also somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy. If minorities continue to advocate special treatment and privileges for themselves, how will they ever view themselves or be viewed by society as whole as equal to the majority? AA also reflects poorly on schools who sacrifice better qualified students on the altar of political correctness. As far as the "systematic discrimination by large corporations" suffered by blacks that AgreetoDisagree alludes to, I would be interested to know which corporations he/she is referring to. Slavery is over, the civil rights movement was successful, and there isn't a country anywhere in the world where blacks have a better overall quality of life they have here in the USA. The notion of perpetual persecution is a tired one, it's time to move forward and identify yourself not as a member of a specific race, but as an American.
