What's funny to me is that we're TYPING.  You can self edit before hitting post!  To have a gaff on a forum is almost impossible, unless you are just that bad with words.
If looks could kill, you would be an uzi.

LOLZ! 

This is fascinating stuff.  If I'm as bored tomorrow as I was today, I'll waste my time pwning you.  Then you can come back with your asinine rebuttals, and we can do this ageless LSD AA Board dance like so many before us.

I was tempted to respond, but I'll let you do the honors tomorrow.

I hope I have time.  If not, PLEASE fill in for me.

But if you don't much care, it's pretty easy to have a few mistypes. I mean, nothing on here should be taken too seriously, posting included.

Dear angry white people:

Mind your business. Perhaps the reason you can't succeed on your own is because you're too busy looking at what other people have and whining about how desperately unfair it all is.

Dear angry black people:

Mind your own business. The back of the bus is better anyway. All the cool kids hand out back there. Maybe you should just chill and calm down on this "civil rights" nonsense. Yeah, you can't eat in some restaurants or have decent jobs, but aren't those overrated anyway?
:o



At least if you argue that it should be income/poverty based or something,

God the last thing we need in law school is more poor people, they are so damn needy, can I have some food so I don't starve? Can I have a roof over my head? Can I have some medical attention for this arm that got cut off? NO get away from my car window, you smell. I don't want these pople taking classes with me they would just ask me for spare change during a lecture.

At least the poverty ridden have some kind of excuse. I was raised just as poor as the black kids around me, but for some reason, I needed to get 10 points better on my LSAT and 1.0 better on my GPA (ballpark) better to stand about the same chance as a URM. We all had the same shot, bad as it may have been, so why should the rules of the game change all of the sudden based on skin color?

There it is! The "I was raised a poor white boy in a black neighborhod, where's my AA" argument! Oh, I've been waiting soooooooo long for this!
"I'd call him a sadistic, hippophilic necrophile, but that would be beating a dead horse."

Comes up a lot, actually.

Not often enough. But kick away, big boy. I know you've got it in you. And make it f-ing burn!

Race-blind or not, I would have gotten into top schools...for the record.

How about America gives back the land it took, pays for the labor it was unjustly enriched by, gets rid of legacy admits, criminalizes all intoxicants instead of just the ones minorities use, abolishes the distinction between white collar crime and other crime and then strictly prohibits racial profiling?  What is it about that that really bothers you?
