Why I don't agree with AA

If both of these girls grow up exactly the same way and have exactly the same grades and LSAT than one will have a huge advantage over the other in terms of UG/Grad admissions and job prospects

I don't like discussing AA that much on the forums because it usually starts a flame and people aren't going to be persuaded from what they initially believe... but just had to post this after I stumbled on the article

The problem with you libs is that you are always mocking instead of taking on the argument itself.

I thought the problem with us/them/you libs was that we/they/you are always wrong about everything?  ???

Only when it involves facts and truth.

You just suggested that we/they/you libs might occasionally be right about something.  Which makes you a America-hating Communazi.

TERRORIST!

The biggest irony is that after your post none of them took on the argument like you criticized.

The bolded is false. My stance on AA has been shifted 180 degrees based on discussion of the issue on these very forums.

And yes, they can both check the same box on any form, if they choose to disclose their race.

So what were you before and what was it that changed your mind?
