Studying for the LSAT / Re: middle eastern URM?
« on: October 25, 2006, 03:15:30 PM »
Do we really need Mama Moni to step in and clarify?  They put African American because that's is what BLACK people in this country call themselves.  A generation (or two) ago it might have been colored and before that it was negro.  Most check boxes say Black/African American because of this.  If you're not racially/ethnically black (and I'm sure that we're all intelligent enough to know what that means) then you should not check it.  End of story.  That includes all North Africans of Arab/Middle Eastern descent in the 'non-AfricanAmerican' category.

Hispanic is different because it relates to ethnicity/national origin, not race.  You can be black or white and be Hispanic.

Any questions?

For a potential future lawyer you missed one clear thing...no matter what is implied...it is written as "AFRICAN AMERICAN" and hmmm...last time I checked Egypt was in Africa.  I don't care why it was written or how it's a PC term.  As for "African - black" that was the original point I was arguing against.  If you go to Tunisia...there are Arab and African looking people..but what if a person is mixed?  What if a person tans better?  Is there going to be the PC police to see where they fall?  If you have the term African American and a few unintended people fall under that blanket than too bad change the term. NUFF SAID ;)

There should be a URM for beautiful people...there aren't enough beautful lawyers (and trust me I'm beautiful).  This argument is so gray, I mean there are all kinds of shades of "black" in America.  There are darker and more light skinned Hispanics.  I'm Hispanic, but my friends call me a coconut b/c I'm brown on the outside and white on the inside.  Are they gonna make a special test to see how "Hispanic" I am?  The same logic goes for the argument that you should specify with African American-black and African American.  African American is African American period.  I'm sure some of you that loveee to argue will be dying to disgree ;)

Jesus, please don't let jealous, evil little people (aka Maradona) upset you.  We need more good people like you as lawyers in the future.  There will be plenty of coke sniffing Maradona's around trust me :)

Quick question regarding the RC section...does the Wallstreet Journal have similar games that help?  I don't quite understand.

That scares me...I'm about to start studying for the LSAT so I can take it in Feb or June.  Is this test really that hard?  Is studying for it that intense?  It seems like it becomes a huge weight that drives people crazy.  Months from now am I gonna being pulling my hair out wondering what my score is?
