    Dems go racial

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19487919/

    What say you?

    Is this responsible leadership? Is it healthy to tell the black electorate that they are being discriminated against (from the government's response to Katrina to AIDS research)? Does this help race relations or hurt them?

    Maybe you can explain this to me - but just how does this "roll back a half-century of desegregation laws"???

    I don't know, it is just the kind of stuff Dems like to say because it makes a good soundbite.

    This is pure race baiting and it hurts race relations. Gee... what did Slick and Hillary do with their 8 years in office to help the race cause? ZERO....NADA
    Actually, I still don't know what Slick did during his 8 years that helped this country period. I still can't name one thing. Not one peice of legislature.

    Re: Dems go racial

    I'm hearing it from everywhere though... not just dems/libs...

    I think Roberts said it right - "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."

    So why is this a problem??? I don't see it as ignoring racism...

    The thing I would say to that is all the legislature you would normally remember, is stuff that are "hot button" issues or that have been bad in the short term or long run. Most of the good stuff, you usually don't remember. At least, that is what I have observed.

    I agree with the decision. I'm all for equal opportunity, not special opportunity.

    It's must have been a great 8 years because Slick is riding high in approval ratings. Of course, anything before the GWB disaster probably boosts people's memory of how great Slick is.

    Re: Dems go racial

    I don't remember Slick doing anything particularly remarkable - he just didn't screw everything up like GWB. I would prefer our president to fool around with White House interns in the oval office instead of dreaming up the next international conflict.

    Doing nothing (except raising taxes) is the legacy of the Klinton administration.

    I personally think it's left-handed people who are the most discriminated against

    Re: Dems go racial

    You yougsters and liberal idiots keep believing that conservatives sit around and "dream up international conflicts"...at least we don't "kill" asprin factories to remove the "stain" from blue dresses!

    BTW, they came here first in 1993...they were here on 09/11...they're still here. Its not our fault that they are here. They are here because they loathe us.
    I'm an asshole! What's your excuse?

    It's quite simple really...going all the way back to one of the most historical Supreme Court cases ever in "Brown vs. Board of Education" (1954), where everyone (or should I say almost everyone) knows that the court ruled that the government's segregation of schoolchildren by race violated the Constitution's equal protection law...

    But what a lot of people don't realize is that the cases following "Brown" were interpreted by the court requiring only minimum standards in order to comply with the court's original ruling...for the most part, the court wanted to leave it up to the local communities to decide what measures should be taken in order to integrate their schools...and they did, and they have ever since to continue their integration efforts...

    In this particular case, Seattle and Louisville were the cities in question, and both communities have made several efforts to modify its integration standards to resist the threat of resegregation

    All of this, of course, is now completely ruined...over half a century of cases regarding race in schools are now crap because of these justices...Justice Bryor said it best when he said "never have so few people done so much in so little time"

    Sure, in a perfect world it would be great for everyone to be colorblind and not have race be an issue at all when it comes to matters like this, but unfortunately this isn't a perfect world and this court had no right to to make this ruling...if the local community has a problem with its integration standards, then they should change them themselves, not the Supreme Court...

    Tisk tisk, all of this over a stupid "tiebreaker" rule for racial classifications
