Let's get to the real issue at hand. The original poster is a self-admitted African-American, and obviously an intelligent person judging by his acceptances and the way he "speaks". He obviously didn't need AA and since he's from "New Jeruz" and made it without AA then a middle class black DEFINITELY doesn't need it.

Let's give the OP a cookie, no matter fact some biscotti and tea, becuase he's from the 'Hood and didn't need AA.

It's so interesting when I see the African-Americans that are fortunate enough to attain a high level of education automatically assume that becuase they did it that there are no problems, obstacles, or barriers for the rest of their representative race.

Hey buddy I'm genuinely happy about your academic fortunes, but that does not automatically qualify you to make such statements. Just consider yourself fortunate and keep it moving.

Perhaps you feel a little insecure that once you start LS that people will think you benefitted from AA and not becuase of your merit, and this post is a result of the underlying insecurities. I don't know, I never was good at playing Dr. Phil. lol

I'm not sure how we deviated to this topic (which is incidentally about my character).In any case, I never assumed that there were no problems, obstacles, or barriers for the rest of African Americans. That's certainly not true. However, we must have an honest discussion on whether these "obstacles" are severe enough to deter blacks from becoming lawyers. More importantly, we must discuss whether these "obstacles" are detrimental to the point where AA is justified (like the 60s). That is why I propounded these questions.

It would be preposterous to assert that AA is wrong in all cases. However, we must access whether current AA programs are consistent with the actions of today's society. I suppose that they are not. Hence the title of the thread.

My reasoning ability increased greatly with each Philosophy class I took, but this brutha obviously experienced the converse.

WHAT HAPPENED TO COMMON SENSE?

I know.

I just had to throw in my 1 cent.

And, for the record, I believe AA is a legitimate AND necessary institution.

Now I've gotta study so I can matriculate at NYU Law in '09 (Well, I hope I do  ;)).

No.


3.  Do you think the fact you're applying soon may affect your perceptions of what's "legitimate and necessary?"

Fair enough -- maybe only whites are motivated by self-interest.

Not even close. There are millions of underrepresented minorities behind me. They need it, too.
