i think there probably should be an economic component to AA, at least to a certain extent. the white kids at my inner city middle school with a collapsed roof certainly didn't have the same opportunities as the white kids at my suburban top 200 public high school in the neighboring town. but you can change your economic status. you can't change your race. which is why at a certain point, race based AA is more suitable to correcting some equalities than sheer socioeconomic policies would be. there should be room in the discourse to discuss how much of each is neccessary. to say that neither is is to be as dumb a fucker as William Graham Sumner.
i'm a straight white male, and you better believe i won God's lottery when i was born. i'm just not a whiney prick who can't do things on my own.
