Its a nicely laid out article, which when taken as a whole admits that blacks cannot compete intellectually on an equal basis with whites, and in order to place blacks into colleges and jobs where tests are given,blacks must be given preferences.
We already knew that. Nothing has changed in the 30 or 40 years that blacks have been given these preferences, they are no more nearer to being able to compete on an equal footing today than they were 40 years ago.
Of course ,according to this writer I am sure that is also the fault of the evil White man.

Take your post and argument to Sgtbono and ask him what he means.
I believe it states pretty clearly exactly what I mean.
Now please tell me why ,if blacks can compete intellectually with whites, why affirmative action is needed. If two people write the same test score why should anyone look at the race of the writer? If one writes a higher test score that is the person who should get the seat or the job, or whatever the test was taken for.
When you establish a quota you are not being fair to the person who wrote the best score by favoring the person needed to fill that quota.
It is not I who say that blacks have lower test scores. It is the proven fact. It is the basis for lowering standards to fullfill quota's.
Many blacks have a very high intellect, perhaps it is their background or parentage,or environment which gave them this knowledge and intellect,however it is not up to me to to determine what gave them this superiority over others, I can just state the fact that we have had affirmative action for at least 40 years and still the majority of blacks need it to find spots they cannot meet the regular standard to fill.
Why havent they reached the same level? I am sure we could argue that for months and still not solve the problem.
However we must ask how much longer must we turn over slots to people who are less capable, how much longer will we need affirmative action, when does it end,or does it go on forever. Will affirmative action be needed for another 40 years ? A hundred years? Much like the liberals want an exit strategy in Iraq, we want an exit strategy from affirmative action.
I'm glad you read through the thread and caught the post I had also directed to you; but hadn't really been careful in noticing the "2002" at end of your monicker. Apologies.
