Disagreed about Bakke for the same reason. Quotas don't really serve any purpose and set asides (as some the more liberals put it) only create more problems than they serve.


Quotas definitely serve a purpose, as a cap for entry for those quota'd. Ask any Jewish person with a career in academia from the late 1800s-1960s.

Or ask my father who got told "we already have a black" when applying to pre-med at Ohio State in the late 50s.

The hilarity on conservative whites is as if quotas have ever affected conservative whites.

Ask any of them right now, and they will tell you they, personally, are victims of affirmative action quotas. Or at least somebody they know. Like, some son or daughter of a friend of theirs or something or they heard about some kid down the street somewhere didn't get into Harvard becuz some black kid did becuz quotas. :problem:

They actually believe their own lies.

In certain Cities across the U.S. "Covenants" were used to block Jews, African-Americans and other Minorities from buy homes in certain communities..

Yup... those restrictive covenants led to the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

The UN has got its problems, especially around its freakouts about Israel and other issues. But as we know, the UN is a non-starter and immediate writeoff with conservative whites anyway, so the ones in this thread can simply scroll past this post.

United Nations panel says U.S. owes reparations for slavery, mass incarceration - Bezos Post

Quote:
Mireille Fanon-Mendes-France, chairwoman of a United Nations working group for people of African descent, reads findings about institutionalized racism after an official visit to the U.S.


The issue is disproportionate effects of these public policy and private sector crimes on African Americans and others of African descent.

People don't get that segregation was violent state-forced (and vigilante-forced) restriction on free movement and mobility, and thus the class mobility that comprises this myth of "the American Dream" for everyone else. And it was operational at the federal, state, and municipal/local levels in all sectors of society, for generations.

Our taxes paid for this state of affairs, so my relatives' taxes were taken out to fund their own oppression by the government (and conservative whites want to crow about "government dependence"...their whole way of life and expectations of what is coming to them from simply living has been bankrolled by nonwhite taxes.) Where are the blathertarians when they could actually be of some use. :problem:
