Affirmative Action / Re: In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants

Also, please change the word "undocumented" in all of your lengthy screeds to "illegal." Don't try to put lipstick on a pig.

Illegal is a pretty broad brush.  If you drive with one headlight out, you are driving "illegally."
You know, you're right. And you get pulled over for that. And you will keep getting pulled over until you you fix your headlight, and are operating the vehicle in accordance with the law. Don't make me draw the obvious analogy.

And tell me why this means that the driver with the broken headlight's kids shouldn't be allowed to drive or buy a car with two working headlights?

He should be able to. He must remedy the illegality. Likewise, those who come here illegally can remedy their offense by leaving. If they can get into the country by legal means, hurrah!
Thanks for the soft ball, champ!

"To be sure, even urm's that attend affluent high schools must often overcome racial prejudices and discriminations unlike their white counterparts."


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!

OP

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,27879.0.html


im cursed- i have european american blood through and through, greek, and even though i am first generation here i get no special treatment like a black kid whose family has been here for 4 generations. pretty shitttty if you ask me. it all comes down to skin color i dont care what anyone else says. and its all total bull shite, racist and bigotry.

You are Greek-American. Greek is a national, not racial, category. Greeks are Caucasian/White. Your racial group, Caucasian/White, is over-represented in law school.

Cursed? Please explain why you are entitled to special treatment when your race dominates the law school population and the legal profession?

Please explain why Mexicans are entitled to special treatment. PLEASE EXPLAIN IT TO ME.

A 1st grader does not wake up in the morning thinking: "I'm going to go to a foreign country to steal and identification and to live off of the tax payers there while living under the radar.".
LOL Ignorance of the law =/= innocence.

Even with the U.S. "screwing" around with other countries, there is SO MUCH corruption south of the border.  Such corruption (created for and by those governments) is destroying economies and keeping foreign companies from investing in their country. 

Not to mention that those same governments WANT illegal immigration to continue.  They get rid of the poorest, most uneducated, the unemployed, and the indigenous.  In return they gain billions of dollars in remitances.  This is just another example of the U.S. being blamed for the problems of other countries. 
Very true. Also, consider that the world's richest person lives in Mexico. Carlos Slim.
And yes, the Mexican govt. has more or less explicity endorsed illegally emigrating to the US.

Its not just corruption. The US has deliberately created harder economic situations in many countries. Much of the current immigration is linked to NAFTA, a US sponsored treaty.  Maybe instead of persecuting people, we should stop screwing around with other countries and then complaining about the results
LOL @ econ-n00b

Discrediting an arguably racist tract in no way justifies AA. Off-topic flame wars detract from the real issue.
