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.

No argument from me. This is what I presumed you had meant in your post #6 to the other poster. And I've seen many of the same social pathologies you describe. I do not have any idea why Della Street chose to address me when her question should have been directed to you.

However, should Della Street be lurking, perhaps yours to me will suffice in responding to her upsettedness.

From my corner of the world, when LBJ enacted his War on Poverty, it came included with preferential quotas for females, not blacks. And liberal social feminists entered and indoctrinated areas of the country with higher black density. And dumbed down their schools, encouraged abortion and libertine philosophies.

And racialists jumped on the bandwagon, joining hands with the libertine feminists to assert, perpetually "discrimination" against blacks continues! The dumbing down of education, and the tearing apart of the once VERY strong black family was the blight visited upon all of us by liberals. The repeated demands for "quotas" is just another call to bury the black family even more. And, this agenda has been supported by Democrats for a long time.

Me too since it only serves as an extremely bitter experienent by the socialists. AA is serving as a depilitating barrier to farther social maturity. I can attest to the uselessness of this program being that I'm black and I never needed this shameful device. I realize that it is there just to prepetutate the idea of an imagined equality without anything real development.

I will fight AA every chance I get because it only makes blacks look really, really stupid when you have Asians doing pretty well in the midst of the sea of "white prevailage". If you notice many real winners that are of African decent like Condi Rice, Collin Powell and so many others you see they are discounted as not being "black" enough.

This is their problem, being "black" many times mines being loud, irrational and simple. I hate that because so called "Uncle Toms" are the people that need to be emulated not some thug(2Pac), or some singer(James Brown), or some athelite(fill in the blank).

How this level of ignorance is allowed to waterdown the school system I don't know but I hope we can slap the victim mentality out of the "hood".
