How many here believe that Mrs Calderon and Mrs Obama heard a planted question in a school?

true equality....appears to be further and further away these days.

I agree. It will never be achieved with affirmative action. Didn't "separate but equal" become illegal with Brown v Board of Education anyway?

@electronicmail,
Should I mention that Brown v. Board of Education had nothing to do with affirmative action? Or, should I just let this silly dogmatic rant go on since someone seems to be enjoying it.

@ebrown p,
Are you trying to prove you're just ignorant and no liar? You're doing a good job of it if you support "separate but equal". Illegal since Brown.

Here's the question to you again from the previous page:

You're dissembling. Obviously, because you can't claim to be ignorant. Why are you peddling propaganda when you know you will get caught?

@hawkeye10,
I agree with you, schools catering to a particular race should be declared illegal, that's the essence of Brown v Board of Education:
Quote:
We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment.

That was 56 years ago. Why the delay?

When you're done with the nervous chuckling try answering the question, if you can.

The kid clearly says "my mom doesn't have papers".
My bad, missed it, and the game is now changed. Kid is easily the most likely choice then, because every alternative party stands more to lose than gain.

Somehow, I do not think that most blacks and brown skin people would not trade places with you in one heartbeat or maybe two.



Your reflexive retort has revealed your own brand 0f Liberal racisim.

You are assuming that "most blacks and brown skin people" lead lives that are significantly less fullfilling than a white man's, and would transform themselves into whites if they could (and rather quickly at that).

If I were one of those "blacks" or "brown skin people," I would certainly be offended.
Indeed.

That argument works much better when reversed by Chris Rock, "Aint a white man in this room that would trade places with me... and I'm rich!"

@OCCOM BILL,
Well, yeah, but what does "papers" mean? If someone asked to see my papers, they'd probably get a blank look. Ask for a drivers license or SS card and I'll know what you are asking.

Maybe you don't know what "papers" mean but rest assured, those who need them knows what it means.

I was going to mention this infamous Chris Rock line. Glad you did. And you're right. I'm quite happy in the skin I'm in and find it ridiculous for anyone to assume that I would trade places with someone based on their skin color. This isn't 1955, although it's becoming clearly obvious, since a man of color took over the throne in the Oval Office, how many people long for those good ol' days.

Yup. Rock's statement hit home, while BillRM's demonstrated racist ignorance exactly as Finn described. Of course, the idea that more than half of any ethnic group is unhappy in their own skin is so staggeringly stupid; the sheer ignorance may overshadow the racism.

I guess Brown will never get around to answering that one. Squaring the circle is easier.

How many times have you been asked to "show ID"? For illegal aliens "papers" is probably the generic of ID, so the kid used that. I still think the whole thing was scripted.

No. But ONLY because he's rich. Your average, every day, working-class black man could say that and I'd agree with him 100%.

@eoe,
That's very interesting. My guess is we'll never know the truth there since most of us can't change colors. But money makes a difference, I'm thinking of the autopsy results for Michael Jackson: some of the drugs he was using to lighten his skin were pretty deadly. Or maybe it was just the chemicals to straighten his hair. Either way the coroner reported those chemicals were toxic.

Do you think it's any different for women?

what are we talking about here? Black people trading places with whites or whites trading places with blacks?
