Just my two cents.


God these AA threads are so predictable

Probably because it's a legitimate argument. Shall I now be called a racist?

Not a legitimate argument when you consider that AA's earn 65 cents on the dollar compared to whites. (Source: Carmen DeNavas-Walt, Bernadette D. Proctor, Cheryl Hill Lee (August 2005) (PDF). Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2004. United States Census Bureau. pp. 60–229.) Or when you consider American history. Socio-economic status cannot be separated from race. Maybe one day. Not today though.

One of the best white conservative mantras.

My cousin ranted to me a few weeks ago about how there's a black history month but not a white one, and we should just have an American history month. Lulzzzzzz

Yeah because the effects of over 200 years of oppression, racism, and slavery are only felt by the poor.

I believe racism should be a factor so that minorities can make in-roads into traditionally white, male professions. Shocker, white kid who can see past the end of her own fucking nose.

I think we should only admit white students, and then give a set amount of URM candidates a roster and they get to choose whose spot they take.

Bradford Covington IV gets booted in favor of a black dude from NYC? I LOVE IT.

Since OP was an anon-abusing, already-warned, non-contributing zero, I'm just gonna skip straight to the Big Red Button™:
