The problem is that was one of the College Republicans [Leigh Dukatt] saying it. How about basing it on grades and talent.
"They're [the club] trying to say affirmative action is based on race, but it's not," said Juan Fortenberry, a kinesiology freshman.
Keep talking that way Juan, and a Florida judge is going to order your feeding tube removed.
We've been dealing with this problem for decades. Maybe they need a new organization: College RINOs.
Hmm, had to look that one up in the ASU online catalog, and found the following:
"Kinesiology Major [Formally known as Exercise Science/Physical Education Major]"
So, its fine with Juan for the taxpayers to pay for him to study "recess". I say that he already HAS a feeding tube worth pulling!
Another student protesting the sale was Dan Martinez, a biology and society senior. He said affirmative action was a good program that benefited many people.
"After so many years of oppression, we have to level the playing field somehow," he said.
Again, from the ASU website:
"The Center for Biology and Society explores conceptual foundations of the biosciences and their diverse interactions with society through Bioethics, Policy, and Law. By bringing together dispersed activities, the Center expands opportunities for intellectual ferment and increased impact by creating synergistic collaborations and communication."
After stripping out the gobbledegook, you have a program whose stated purpose is to examine issues that related to biology (race comes to mind) and society (AA also comes to mind). You'd think that Danny would have appreciated the chance to study the interactions, rather than just blowing his piehole about it. Oops, missed a shot at a nice extra credit paper there, Dan!
Natalya Kuskin, a political science and English literature freshman, also handed out fliers. There is no equality in this country and affirmative action is needed, she said.
"So much racism is still in this country, and the government still has a responsibility to do something," she said.
Elsewhere in the Web Devil, in response to the question: "Do you think Terri Shiavo's feeding tube should be replaced?" she states the following:
"She shouldn't have to die ... She's still bringing happiness to her parents." --Natalya Kuskin, political science and English literature freshman
Maybe Natalya is capable of being saved, if we can get this immigrant away from left-wing influences. Good thing for her and her family, if they came over, too, that there is enough equality to let them over here, and at least partially pay for her "education".
