    They do this every year, and it never really works out the way they intend since they really don't understand how AA works, and never seem terribly interested in learning.

    That's why we love you guys. You take a serious, complex issue and dumb it down into something simplistic and stupid. How cute.

    I think 25 cent brownies is a good start for the reconciliation of polio filled blankets handed out to their grandfathers.

    That's why the whites hate Affirmative Action, too many rich blacks and Hispanics rigging the system. :grin:

    Odd, given that the opposition to it is primarily not by those groups. Weird that you think you're qualified to tell those groups what is insulting to them.

    You don't think the "white man's pity" is insulting to them? Not only is it insulting to blacks and hispanics, but it's flat out racist to whites and asians.

    I feel sorry for you if that's the best post that your abilities allow for.

    Or maybe they don't view it as white man's pity. Again, ask yourself why those groups don't oppose those programs. Quite presumptuous of you to speak for all these groups.

    because they're getting free schit! duh. It's still insulting to them, and many free thinking blacks and hispanics see it as such.

    The problem with it, is that due to AA, many people look down upon the blacks and hispanics who do get into the school, since many assume that they had "a helping hand" and aren't qualified.

    And then Asians who prioritize education get the shaft big time.

    If I were a native American, I'd be all over that.

    I have seen many instances of this, personally, at Columbia.

    Post of the day.

    Can we consolidate all the "poor white folx" threads. This forum is starting to resemble an AM radio enthusiast meet up

    Campus recruiting and managerial succession plans tend to be a little more "insulting" and last for a lot longer than 12th grade. And black and hispanic high school students self-select themselves away from competitive college programs, just like white kids.
