Plus is it wrong to be against AA, especially when somebody with a better resume gets past over. Where I come from people earn their keep. I hate when people expect handouts and don't work for what they have.
When they don't work? I'd like to remind you that this country was built upon the hard WORK of black men and women slaves. America originated in racism and it remains today. Slavery ripped apart black families, created an "inferior" race leading to hundreds of years of discrimination, violence, and countless other obstacles which have made it more challenging for a black man or woman to go to college, get a well paying job, or--you guessed it-- make it to law school. Our country created these disadvantages-- and hopefully one day they will no longer be present. But for now, who cares if a few URMs have a better chance at law school. It is not a matter of not working for what you have, and if this is what you think--you are seriously ignorant. if you can't see the connection between the history of INSTITUTIONALIZED racism in this country and the purpose of AA, you need to grow up and get some perspective.
At the risk of being reported to the MOD's,
mods? what f-ing mods?
did you know more minorities aren't graduating from high school because of testing. geewiz...i wonder why is that!
enlighten us. what's wrong with having standards?
perversely name 3 things in the next 5 minutes that the No Child Left Behind law does and why they are bad policy prescriptions. Don't go look up moveon.orgs talking points either. Give me stuff fast. I doubt you even know much about NCLB, I did my thesis on it and will destroy you if you try to debate me. But to quote GW, Bring em on.
it says we need to:
2) not be held accountable for not testing
3) not change how all public schools learn
First of all as for the last 2, they are double negatives and i can hardly see how a positivist piece of legislation can include as policy perscriptions qua policy double negatives. and yes NCLB mandates testing. andy why shouldnt it mandate that we test. the public (you know the first word in the clause public school) in poll after poll supports using tests to gauge performance. would you then suggest that the public, the very public who funds these schools not be entitled to see what its tax dollars is generating in terms of accomplishments via accountability. lemme guess you would prefer more holistic arts and crafts style evaluative sh*t to determine performance. tests are a part of life. ever heard of the LSAT. It's a small test you might have heard of.
Mustbeme, I doubt you ever served, even if you did I doubt you fought. So shutthefuckup!
Alright man, since you can't play nice and debate like a normal human being, you have been reported. Have a nice day
Wow you really are a tough guy. I've been reported, wow.
You're a moron and we are all dumber for having to listen to your ignorant rantings. You make everyone who agrees with your viewpoint look stupid and I would put money that they would have nothing to do with you.
