if the africans and mexicans teamed up, we could really shake things up.  the fact is that africans and mexicans and other minorities are marginalized in the US. we have less diversity of thought in our nations capital because of it; it ammounts to a tyranny of the majority.  mexicans and africans should hold a caucus and decide who we are going to vote for and all vote in one huge block...the only way to become less marginalized

Seriously though, if we would stop acting like crabs in a barrel, we could actually get something accomplished that benefits all of us.

I just wanted to point out that I did not start the AA topic on this board.  If you read my first posting I actually pointed out:

Hey everyone.  I've read this whole thread and I found it pretty interesting and helpful. (I see we already got the inevitable AA debate going on - I was wondering how long it would take 

I just saw that it had come up already so I posted on it (which is one of the things you are supposed to do on a discussion board in the first place - reply to current posts.) I actually think its kinda sad that it has to come up just cus we are on the black prelaw students board.  But the reality is, someone will bring it up eventually (as they did like days ago).  And, if you really wanna have a forum called "Black Law Student Discussion Board", that is one issue black students often have to encounter in the world of higher education.

However I agree that other boards specifically about AA might be a better place to post on such topics.  (Just wanted to remind yal that i didnt start it, i was jus replying to earlier stuff i read - plus i was unaware of the fact that there even was an AA board, since i just discovered this site.)  Thanx for the replies...peace.

I agree that AA has been ran in the ground on this boward and we need to move past it because nothing productive is gonna come from discussing it.

Random thought:

Any Chicagoans or political heads out there watching that Senate race? That brother Barack Obama is impressive as all hell! First black president of Harvard Law Review among his other accomplishments. He's speaking at the Democratic Convention this month. Bet he'll be one to watch over the next few years. I can see him running for president in the future.

If we get a black president in my lifetime, I will die a happy woman.
