man, julie can see light shining through from your other ear. no one ever told you?
as far as the poor white man and black man, i didnt mean to use economics...i only used "poor" because the previous poster used it...i mean, if u prefer, take everything i said ver batum and take out "poor" or any economic association...in other words, shouldnt the goal be that the white person be treated like the black person? as far as chris rock...i saw that, i thought about that and i have to say my conclusion, i'd rather be him than the white bus boy...besides, it's comedy and i hardly take it seriously
My question … my real question and the reason for my post is …. How long before we can all just be people and not separated into groups? Yes, for a world to exist there must be differences and groups. By why the HUGE gap? I’m not looking for a way to save the world and make up for a really long run of crappy ways our government has handled differences, I’m looking for a general consents that it needs to change.
If there aren't any arguments against my claims, then I'll depart gracefully. Feel free to continue the concordant attack on my character, it's funny.
Hugs, Look to the f-ing left.
Lsat -- you said "with limited resources" -- do any of us really have limited resources anymore? I think its fair game out there. Ok, yes there are instances of discrimination absolutely. I whole-heartedly agree with that. I’m not making light of anyone’s situation but aren’t we at a point where it should be EXPECTED for people to overcome diversity? I don’t expect nor claim to be in a better position then anyone else in life and it would be great if the majority of everyone else out there to agree. We should be expected as professionals to be able to overcome. I guess in a statement we should stress HOW but sooner or later there has to be a point that it is expected an applicant HAS overcome diversity and it shouldn’t be an issue anymore. There wont be personal statements anymore about how we overcome. It will be able what we see for our future bc the obvious conclusion is we all had overcome. All of us. Why would anyone on this board be trying to pursue a career in law if we hadn’t overcome? It should be expected.
Your right. I certainly will. And I wont teach my children hate. Unfortunately, its what society feeds to be hate. Not me. Sorry for trying to change that.
You dont have any boobs anymore lsat!! But no -- I dig the openness of your posts. I know we aren’t fighting … just sharing ideas. It's all I ever wanted here.
Quote from: Julie Fern on February 20, 2006, 05:29:21 PMso, let's recap.anyone?I have, on occation, been following this thread. The original intent of this post is an interesting look into the mind of a lonely person. Part of me wonders why there is a separate BLSD, but I've posted on it, and I'm obviously white , and no one has ever complained. Then I realize that it is just a jealousy mechanism about the possibility of rejection by a community in which you are not a default member. I get jealous of that sense of community as well, but I realize that we, as social animals, tend to form communities around common interests (LSD, sports, games, etc.) and common attributes (family history, ethnicity, culture, etc.) and hopefully that community accepts new and different members as well as those it was set up to support (the community in question obviously does.)
so, let's recap.anyone?
good post sands ...while i agree with 90% of the point of that post, i do have one thing which may disagree/conflict with this...as the post (article?) mentioned, granted briefly, the whites also tried to keep the asian-americans down as late as 1935, but we have been able to rise above and have been able to establish ourselves in the educational system as well as the social system, yet we probably have one of the lowest representations in the political system...thus we have less people "fighting" for our interests on a political level...i'm not speaking for the south or midwest or whatever, but in california asian-americans make up, by my rough guesstimate, about 25% of the UC system while we make up probably 15% of society while AA representation in the UC system is, i think, well under 10% despite there being far more AAs in CA...this makes me wonder why there is such a discrepancy between the cultures...i personally suspect that the difference is due to the fact that, from what i've seen, asians seem to value education a lot more and tends to put more pressure on the kids to obtain an education and i just dont see other cultures' emphasis on education the way that asians tend to emphasize it...this leads me to wonder why that was? why is it that the other minorities (not just AAs) dont seem to emphasize the importance of an education? i know this sounds ignorant as #(@%, but i dont believe that there's no merit to it...
