Never heard him say that, source?
Sowell is so right that the other unfair part of affirmative action is that any time a minority excels many will believe it’s because of his race.
Being that it’s a New York Times interview, hopefully “consider the source” applies. But, it seems to be his own words:
“I am conservative. No doubt about it. But when you go back to what it means to be a conservative, I also think, as conservatives, we should believe in universal health care coverage.”
Yeah I definitely think a consider the source applies here, he was just on laura ingraham talking against this same sort of thing...
When someone is promoted based upon anything but merit, the entire system of trust breaks down.
Unfortunately, we have to wonder whether Obammie the Commie has truly earned each step along the way to this final achievement, and, thus, this achievement itself.
I was really hoping that, if we had to worry about such things as, “the first black president,” that it would be a Republican, who would have the MSM and all the celebutards against him, who won the election fair and square. That way we'd know that “the first” truly earned it and we could not only lay that milestone aside, but everyone who claimed a victim status could look to him/her as a role model that this is still the land of opportunity and we don't need the free-pass of affirmative action.
Jindal just became governor of Louisiana. No doubt he’s part of the future of the GOP, but he wanted to change his state first.
