Affirmative Action Voted Illegal
« on: June 29, 2009, 10:41:42 PM »
I know that in Michigan(and I believe California too) that affirmative action was voted illegal. I remember a bunch of overweight black woman on the news protesting but the court of appeals denied it. They then tried to allow the schools themselves to on an indivigual basis allow white and male discrimination but were denied. Everytime the news asked a in shape black male or a woman in general they were either ok with the idea or at least not insane. I know that not all overweight black woman are crazy but why does the news and the movies (every movie with a large black woman ever made for example) make them out to be insane? Mabey I've just been in the woods too long but its hard to think of an entire group of people being that nuts.

Sorry got off topic there, anways has anyone heard of other states leaning towards the making it illegal too? Michigan has a lot of URM downstate and even they for the most part voted against it. Its time to move on, if you score a D grade you dont deserve an A just becuase you have a different sex organ and a natural tan. At least according to the voting polls.

Affirmative action as a whole was not held to be unconstitutional- only specific affirmative action programs by certain government entities were held to be unconstitutional.

You also need to distinguish between public and private affirmative action. If you own a business and want to do quota based affirmative action, you are free to do it. It's only the government that can't do it.

I believe the OP is referring to Prop 209 (California), the so-called Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, and Initiative 200 (Washington State).  I'm going to stay out of the rest.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

To challenge your denial of admissions, you must reference The proposal that was brought forward within the state of Texas that the DOJ now has - DJ 169-73-0  (dated: April 5th 2005)

If you truely beleive that you have been discriminated against, you can now challenge your claim

what makes it the worst post? Is it how I expressed my being offended of media bias? Was it how I stated facts on votes that were made and laws passed(God forbid) was it how I expressed my personal opinion that even though my daughter has colored skin and is a girl she should have to actually score an A to get an A? Which part offends you the most, or do you just like to pull the race card when it isn't justfied? Crying Wolf brings down the value of a true wolf attack you know.

poor grammer, half the guys posting on this site use ain't or refer to themselves in third person. Its a forum not a textbook its fine.

What makes it "self rightous"? You may hold your family to a lower standard but that just is being a bad dad to oppress your kids by setting the bar low.

Poor grammar/punctuation, ham-fisted analysis, and obnoxious self-righteousness.
