Even if one were to view AA as a unearned "hook up," I know more white people who benefit from the unearned "hook ups" American life has to offer than I do black.

You're being an idiot again. Go away.

Make me.Seriously, what do you expect to gain here? Coming to this forum to fire vacuous barbs that claim "libs" are (for some reason) disingenuous and inconsistent in their views and actions is simple trollish behavior. And yet you act annoyed when everyone ignores you - or worse, doesn't take you seriously. There is plenty of good literature out there for you to consume - both for and against - if you want to learn something about AA. If you're looking to have an honest discussion here, to perhaps learn something (if not that, then I guess I just don't understand your motivations), perhaps you should (at least attempt to) check your clumsy rhetoric at the door. Otherwise...
Honestly, if you care, read this thread: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,64541.0.htmlRead it all of the way through, and give an honest effort to understand what she's talking about. Also, like piggy and H4CS have commented, it does get a little boring whenever someone comes in here guns-a-blazing. Like the Captain said, "I mean, you bluster in here like you have something interesting to say as though this debate hasn't been hashed out a million times and you don't realize when people are calling you out...beautiful snowflake, and all."
