Can't have those colored folks getting free education while the whites have to pay for it.

can't have public institutions racially discriminating, even if it is mostly against asians.

if you really want to lift up black people institute class-based assistance from pre-k, don't embrace the racism of lowered expectations by relaxing college admission standards.

edit: also, affirmative action has little to do with the (largely private) scholarships which are available to people of color, but not poor whites and asians. it's about admission standards, which should be applied equally and not based on race.

I don't think that anyone is going to cut off the free flowing supply of indentured servants until athletics and institutions separate or create some kind of division in which athletes are paid/allowed to accept endorsements and are characterized as employees rather than students.

As for the academic side of it. I don't see why someone coming from a district that has no financial resources, low quality teachers, and is more jail than educational facility shouldn't have the curve bent a bit when up against student(s) coming from a charter school where answers were handed to the kids to incentivize whomever is funding the "school". Let them in and let the grades and work load settle things. When one of the two drops out a slot opens for another one to "achieve" anyways.

i agree. the ncaa can fuck itself for the way it profits off the backs of unpaid athletes. players should at least be allowed to profit off their personality (jersey sales, video game representations, etc) rather than their old white overlords.

this seems to argue against affirmative action, and that assistance should be based on coming from one of those districts, not on race.

I didn't think that was aimed at you. I thanked it because it applies to so many Trumpsters. I think you're cool. Just so you know.

I just want to live in a world where people do cool shit and are good to one another. If giving one person a leg up to add a different voice to the conversation is how it needs to happen than cool. If you can figure out ways to get rid of it (like my state has by outlawing AfirmAct) and still promote diversity than that is cool as well. The problem with anything vetted and promoted by Trump is that it likely has some nefarious catch to it, rendering it decent crap instead of cool shit. Now if Trump can erase 30-40 years of making decent crap by doing a bunch of cool shit cool. However based on the crew of lost boys he hangs out with cool shit will never be in reach because one of the guiding principles of cool shit is it needs soul and man...

Word. I was just shitposting. No offense taken.

... but, if you think white people are being unfairly disadvantaged by affirmative action programs, then you might be a dumbass and I would invite you to hit the CAPS LOCK key and disable spellcheck.

Black people make up 5% of the student population at institutions of higher learning. Compare that to their representative percent of population. The minority group that has benefitted most from affirmative action programs? White women. These are facts, dawg.

Besides, there are wayyy more important civil rights problems this country needs to deal with (voting rights, LGBTQ to name a few). What a coincidence the racist-in-chief would advance THIS issue before all others!

On npr this morning they said that the secret service was moving it's base out of Trump tower in NYC to a nearby location because the government couldn't reach a deal with the Trump organization on rent. So Trump was trying to charge the government too much for his tax payer funded security.

So Trump says North Korea "best not" make any more threats against us or they will face "fire and fury"

North Korea threatens to bomb Guam.

My asshole is clenched.

So there's this anime called Death Note. The premise is that there's a notebook where if you write someones name in it they die.

The whole time watching it, and ever since, alli could think about is how id just write in the entirety of congress on the first hour.

Would probably plunge the world into chaos, but i dont think id be able to resist.
