Affirmative action is reverse racism. Simple as that.
Sorry. But ANY job given to someone based on race is racism. In fact, I'm not sure "reverse racism" should even be a term allowed. It's all racism. If AA has helped white women, that's an issue too. It's not fair IMO. Jobs should be given based on qualification only. Not gender or race. Complete bull to do it any other way.
How about those firefighters in the Sotomayor case? Care to explain how her verdict was fair to them?
And to those of you taking issue with my NAACP comment: that's fine. You're entitled to your opinion. Just like I'm entitled to mine. It is a race based organization and, therefore, in my mind, I can't support it. That's all. Just like I wouldn't dream of supporting the KKK.
I can't deny racism is still out there. It's on both sides, though. Not acknowledging that is ignorance.
You automatically assume every white guy has it easy? WRONG. Not every whtie person is America is doing alright, thank you very much. EVERY issue that African Americans struggle with are experienced by whites, too. Believe me. Just because I'm white doesn't make my life any easier than an African Americans life.
You think white people can't be poor or have to live in the ghetto? You think white people have it all? I'm apparently not the only person that needs to check their facts.
What a complete load of crap.
The rest of your post alludes to the struggles of blacks during the civil rights era. And you are absolutely correct. We didn't have to deal with any of that. But guess what? It's 2009. Not 1969. We ALL have the same rights now, correct? So maybe we should be solving the issues together instead of assuming whites have it so easy.
