The smallest minority is the individual. This guy is the poster boy for stupidity.

Victim competitions — where the winner is actually the loser. “Affirmative action to begin tomorrow ... women and minorities hardest hit.”

Affirmative Action: Hardworking minorities need not apply.

I agree. And the articles below could apply to Chicago more than anywhere else:

It seems candidate Meeks and I are in partial agreement. I also think Asians, Hispanics and women should be excluded from affirmative action programs.

But why stop there?

That's until the dream act goes through..

a 'minority' is any voter the left can convince is a 'victim' of some hated 'majority'. To the left, 'minority' equates to TOOL.

That’s why our numbers cannot improve, because we use women, Asians and Hispanics, who are not people of color, who are not people who have been discriminated against. We fought for these laws based on discrimination. Now, groups that have not been discriminated against are the chief beneficiaries.

Hmmm...

I think all Americans should claim to be a part of a “protected class.” But then, I’m not content to call, email, fax, rally, etc. against a government out-of-control.

The African American race hustlers (JJ, Al Sharpton, etc) have instilled a racism in the black community that they simply cannot see for themselves.

As you show, the American Indians are the #1 harmed minority in our history. The black community doesn't even acknowledge it.

I think all White people, when asked for racial information for some reason, should claim to be Black. Remember the so called one drop rule? Make them prove that your not Black. All kinds of opportunities could present themselves.

There are SO many opportunities for such civil disobedience, but alas, there is no stomach for it. Americans are busy going to rallies in D.C. & then breaking their arm patting themselves on the back for being patriots. The game changed on 11/4/08, and conservatives just keep playing by the old rules.

Take a peek at a picture of James Meeks. It should answer any question as to where his attitude comes from

Slight similarities (and hilarities) in the WikiLeaks guy’s date rape arraignment. According to Freeper Craum*:

Take 1) Assange, 2) gender feminists and other lefties who are rape apologists for said “crusader” (same ones who gave Clinton one freebie), 3) gender feminists who aren’t.

Throw in bottle and shake up.

Watch them eat themselves.

While Meeks is obnoxious, he’s right. When AA was first proposed, it was ONLY for blacks-as a payback for slavery. It was only expanded to make it palatable to other “groups”.

By and large, I think he’s right. That was the clear intent of the post-civil war amendments. They have been goobered up badly by the Supreme Court in it’s attempt to control almost everything. Limiting those amendments to wiping out slavery and all it’s side effects would actually have prevented much mischief by the Supremes in the last fourty or fifty years.

The AA women are usually the ones that have a job, so the men can just hang out.
Several years ago The Cajuns in LA tried unsuccessfully for minority status due to objection of the AA’s

There's about 20 Chicago mayoral candidates elbowing and insulting each other right now in various campaign venues around the city.

The non-partisan slate is a conglomeration of characters right out of central casting. Weirdos, freakazoids, con artists, ethnic victims, socialists and commies abound.

Think of the loony Rev-rund Meeks, the hard-core lefty Rahm Emanuel and the sticky-fingered, low IQ Carol-Mostly-Fraud squared. Them's yer cherces.

Actually, Rahm is beginning to look like George Washington in comparison to the others in the vaudville show. At least he can speak coherently and apparently knew what he was doing in the White House for two years, however nefarious it was.

The Chicago media has decided Rahm will be the next mayor. They're not vetting or investigating his creds at all. They're absorbed in their own titillation over whether or not he's been a legal Chicago resident this past year as the election law says he must be.

The Chicago media hookers are running with the residency story at the expense of looking for any skeletons in Rahm's closet. They won't even bother looking between now and election because they don't know if he has a legal closet in the city or anywhere else, for that matter. And they don't care.

For the lord god, Emanuel, cometh.....hallelujah!

This contention isn’t new, but has been brought to the forefront by the disturbing (to some) revelation that Hispanics has passed blacks in population by 2000; this wasn’t anticipated for at least another ten years. As their numbers swell, they are displacing blacks in nearly every facet of American life: the workplace, the urban areas, colleges, and prisons. Nobody cares for the black vote anymore; the Hispanic voters (and consumers) are the hot ticket now. As far as white women being included as “minorities”, that is just silly; blacks should be furious about that. Women’s groups are concerned because college classes are approaching the 40:60 male to female ratio (and they fear this will be used as rationale to end their “protected” status); somehow 41:59 is acceptable to them (until they want to take time off work to start a family, and realize they can’t). As long as white males are criminalized, I don’t give a sh!t about what happens to anyone else.

We have scientific evidence to back this up: research confirms the “Out Of Africa” hypothesis that all modern humans stem from a single group of Homo sapiens who emigrated from Africa 2,000 generations ago and spread throughout Eurasia over thousands of years.

IMHO, Richie Daley, Da Mare of Chicago, a city spiralling out of control, is leaving for the following reasons:

***An education system which is one of the worst in the country and which includes an over-50% dropout rate among school age children.

***Decaying neighborhoods and declining property values in numerous areas where the citizens are afraid to go OUT of their homes because of rising street murders.....and, likewise, afraid to stay IN them because of the tremendous rise in the number of home invasions.

***Countless city government scandals with numerous department heads, employees and even elected officials carted off to federal and state prisons during the long Daley tenure.

***Millions of dollars in missing money for contracts.

***A flat-broke city at the moment.....and for years to come. Huge budget deficits with ever-decreasing revenue to meet the city's needs.

***The election of Barack Obama as president. The name "Daley" was Numero Uno in Chicago for half-a century. Now, The Man to See" is Barak Obama, the kid from the 'hood. None of the Daleys have ever, or will ever, countenance someone being equal to or above them....ever.

***His wife's illness.
