true as far as the sentiment goes. reality sees others defining us by race so we have to defend similarly.

I do support affirmative action as I have seen the harm done without it

but to give a german or an indian free college because they are german or indian ys is racism sme with negro tuition because you are negro
i maintain the country will be better off AGAIN when we go back to free college tuition
I know how our economy works. Are you suggesting that freebies for "special people" is how it works?

Affirmative action may well work for the chosen group involved. Depressed blacks needed a temporary boost is one thing. Reparations for slavery, a common worldwide economic norm for thousands of years, is entirely something else.

Slavery ended 150 years ago here in the USA, how do we repay the "debt" to the Dead? And a good many non negroes died in the struggle to free the slaves. How do we pay that debt?

One has to be pretty loose with other people's money to encompass all of that debt into an fair program of "Reparations"

How do we determine worth value and whom is entitled. By pedigree? By Family tree history? By skin color? Oh wait, isn't that racist?

And don't scold me about Affirmative action. At my companies, we practiced it for 40 years. With OUR money.
