Affirmative Action / Re: Affirmative action = bullsh*t
« on: July 19, 2005, 05:23:32 PM »
You are a joke. First of all, you were the one who called me an idiot in the first place, and then proceeded to try and elevate yourself by busting out the latin. You are in no place to be lecturing on acting like an "adult", and "stooping so low".

Second, you said that affirmative action is "not judging an applicant on their race". That has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard in my life. Could you please explain your rationale behind that totally idiotic statement???? ???

You called me an idiot, buddy. And read my post above. If they were judging me based on my race, that's all I'd have to submit, my race.


WTF??? You make an idiotic claim that "law schools do not judge minorities based on their race" and your defence for this remark is that if they were judging you on your race, then that's all you'd have to submit???

So by your logic, law schools do not judge people based on their LSAT either.I will invoke some of your idiotic logic to defend this (also) untrue claim: "if they were judging me on my LSAT, that's all I would have to submit, my LSAT." 

Can you not see how stupid you are??? I cannot believe someone this dumb would even consider a career in law.

Im sure some URM do actually have great stats, but no one gives them credit for it, because they are overshadowed by the VAST majority who do not have great stats, and instead get in based on their skin colour. And we have idiots like you to thank for this.

GREAT majority? Where's your support for that claim?

Idiot?

What's your GPA genius?

Ad hominem is always a great defense when you have nothing useful to say. You've just invalidated your entire argument.

And I'm sorry if you don't know what ad hominem is. Don't mean to use big words.

Wow, you learned a new word. ::)

I don't think anyone disputes for a second that the average grades of URM admitted into Harvard, Yale and the like is MUCH, MUCH lower than the average of all their students. The fact that you are actually dumb enough to dispute this goes a long way in explaining your absurd claim that judging applicants based on their RACE is not racism.

So what? They had tough lives, I don't dispute or doubt that. MANY people had tough lives in the 50s and 60s. My grandfather was blinded in WW2 and had to live the last 50 or so years of his life in that state and just got by. Yet I am not demanding handouts for his hardship, and nor should I.

So what should we do? Dump your blinded grandfather back into society with no assistance, no training, no support and say "Fend for yourself!"?


No, I'm not quite sure what that is supposed to be analogous to though. You are claiming that people should be compensated for their ancestors' plight. But only if they have a certain skin colour. That is racist.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Starting with a 138

Yeah, who cares about this crap?  Ralph Wiggum, I don't think you have a hope in hell of getting 160 on your LSAT. Now put your head back on your desk and go back to sleep - that's where you're a viking. :D

What's with all this affirmative action BS I see on American University's websites? I live in liberal Canada and it is not this bad. How can anyone possibly support judging applicant's based upon their skin tone, and not be a racist? ???

How much do you know about American history? Maybe that might give you some insight into the matter.

What the hell is that supposed to mean? Are people to be rewarded/punished for the fate of their ancestors who have been dead for decades?

Oh Canada! / Re: Cdn. schools = bull sh*t
« on: July 19, 2005, 03:10:45 PM »
bull. U of T ONLY gives out scholarships on the basis of need, as they consider all their applicants "very qualified". And trust me, Notre Dame, U of Texas, Columbia, Berkeley, etc are all what I am aiming at for scholarships, and there is not a single Canadian school that is even in their league.
