So people just need to get over it?
Indeed. You either let your life be dictated by the past, or you move on and begin to dictate your future.
What a strange way of seeing things. If I get hit by a car and I sue the driver, am I allowing my life to be dictated by the past or am I moving on and dictating my future? And I am not trying to suggest that this is analogous, so please don't bother arguing that point.
And it's not analogous. You're within your rights to sue the driver, but you shouldn't let the fact you got hit mean that your life is forever altered by it. Even if you get seriously screwed up in said car accident, you take you cane and hobble your way on down the road. That, or you spend your life rolling out of the way anytime a car comes within 15 feet of you.
I already said it wasn't, but I imagine for different reasons.
What if by some strange turn of events, you get hit by cars over and over again?
I was just reinforcing the point.
If you're continually getting hit by cars, that probably has more to do with you than the other cars.
So you think that racism is the fault of people who belong to racial minority groups. Got it.
Way to overextend the car analogy, which was a poor analogy to begin with.
Unless you were saying "aa = a car wreck" from the very start, and even then...
Oh I wasn't saying anything about affirmative action. I'm just pointing out that sometimes you let things go, sometimes you go back and address the problem.
Thus bringing us back to the question of when is enough enough? How long will it take for aa to fix the problems caused by things well beyond its control, or how long until URM culture addresses the problems itself?
Okay so you're conceding at that "getting over it" is not always appropriate, and should only be done when enough has actually been done?
