But Madness, don't you agree that minorities are not the only ones who have experience setbacks in their lives? What about LGBT people? What about women? Athiests? The poor? The disabled? None of these people get a checkbox and are only left with the option of discussing it in a PS.
Agreed. I agree with getting rid of the checkboxes. Its a dumb idea (aside from institutional reporting). Still, I'm not sure eliminating the boxes in favor of PS will change the system. I'm not sure pre-1Ls understand (and many law students) how affirmative action works.

None of these people get a checkbox and are only left with the option of discussing it in a PS.LGBT ppl get a box.In addition, LGBT ppl have their own thread, Non trads have their own board, as do minorites, and Canadians...yet I don't see you bitching about that
I'm a racist black guy who is also a jack ass that likes to start sh*t. As for my argument, do you think OP came here looking to logically discuss issues?Who you choose to confront in this thread, and who you've let slide in this thread, and your comments towards both, speaks volumes about you as well. No wondering with me. I already have you figured out - since passing judgement is apparently what we are doing here.
Wow. One day and all this. Do any of you "race blind" people realized that:(1) the NAACP was co-founded by white folk, whom have never been excluded from membership.(2) White Entertainment Television (W.E.T. - HAHA! ) is every other station on television. [Where is the outcry against Telemundo?](3) There have been no "Black" organizations that exclude white people. (Even the Black Panther Party had the White Panther Party.)(4) That B.E.T. (post-Tavis Smiley/Teen Summit) is not a black enterntainment network. It is a "what white people think black people are" entertainment network. Additionally, if there were a network that seriously catered to the distinct culture of Black People, why would anyone have a problem? I imagine that you aren't up in arms over Telemundo because of the language barrier. (5) [img width= height=]http://www.unc.edu/~jreich/Puppy.jpg[/img]
