"Affirmative Action is not about preferential treatment for blacks; it is about removing preferential treatment whites have `received through centuries giving equal treatment to people who were denied equality in the past"
My problem with this statement is this.
Because this thing is so wrong and been going on for hundreds of years. We are going to do it again.
This is what aggravates me. I believe you do something wrong you should be punished. This is like the bibles "original sin" concept.
I want to be judged on my actions not on the actions of people i have never met and the only even close to connection i have to them is that they had sex hundreds of years ago.
So if Affirmative action is around for a couple hundred years the cosmic pendulum will swing back?
And it will just stop at an even mark?
No because then "whites will complain about the past couple hundred years"
You punish people who are doing wrong. Not those who look like them. Because that would be profiling and wrong.
