So?

It's funny.  Fifty years ago, whenever the issue of segregation reached the ballots in the south, people supported it.


I wasn't trying to prove that affirmative action is right or wrong based on the % of people that support/oppose it. I was merely trying to dispel the myth on this board that affirmative action programs are popular in the United States. They are mostly popular among groups that benefit from them.

And their absence is popular among those groups that benefit from their absence, no?  :)

Which is why I told you to read.  This is not at all the prevalent view on this board.
Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.
