Affirmative Action / Re: The smart minorities get it....Class based AA.
« on: September 04, 2007, 08:19:38 AM »
The title of this thread is rather condescending.  I find it amusing actually, because it was probably unintentional yet it says a lot about the OP.  :D

Yep. It's very condescending.  She might as well call me a N****R!

You're right about it being unintentional.  BlondnGreen strikes me as....umm....young.

I've never used the 'n' word.  To me the connotations are horrible.  As always you try to divert my attention by calling me a racist.  You're a silly little man. 

Now you're trying to divert his attention by calling him short.  :D

Do you realize that there are negative connotations to calling people "smart minorities?"  How do you think one of the two men you mention would react if you went up them and said: "Mr. Such-and-such, I think you're a smart minority!  I'm glad that there are some smart minorities around!"  I mean really.  :D

You sound so angry and bitter.  Do you support AA because you're stupid?  Are you delusional?  Is it enlightened self-interest that drives you?  Are you acting in myopic selfishness? -  I jest -   The title was merely an attention getter.  It's deliberately misleading.  I know you can be smart and support race based AA, you just don't care about those severely disadvantaged whites.  We have a white president, etc, etc, so even though your Daddy was a coal miner and you grew up in the Appalachians, and you struggled, etc, etc, who cares?  Wait a minute, ignore the 'I jest' part.

Girl, chill the f*** out.  AA is educational welfare - do you really think that their going to give up their benefits without a fight?  They'll put forth more energy defending their entitlement to AA than they will for the LSAT.

Still debating AA?  I guess you crazy kids are just practising for law school.  AA's going to be gone soon, then what will y'all get your knickers in a twist about?

Affirmative Action / Re: What irks me about AA

This thread is getting as old and tired as AA itself.  Look through my posts to get a clear picture of why AA is unconstitutional, and why this new SC will strike it down.  Yes, the defenders of AA will call you racist, but who cares what they think?  They see something that benefits them, and they don't want that benefit taken away.  The word 'entitlement' is used so often because AA feeds into a sense of entitlement.   My skin is a certain color, so even though I may not be as smart as that white person, I'm entitled to their space at that prestigious law school.  AA is ALL about a sense of entitlement.   It's either about reparations, or it's about how even though I'm middle class and received the same education as you, institutional racism entitles me to your spot.

Whatever happened to the Constitution and the Fourteenth amendment?  The writing is on the wall for AA.  It will be tested, it will be struck down.

Being in-state doesn't offset poor LSAT scores the way AA does.

I think I'll probably end up going to UT in '08.  I'm very interested in U.T's exchange programs and would love to study in Britain.  My dad's a Brit, and I have lots of family still over there.  I'm assuming it's super competitive.  Do you know the criteria for acceptance into the program?
