I still haven't really thought about the recent Supreme Court rulings on Affirmative Action. But J. at Silver Rights pretty much sums up my thoughts on the entire issue:
I don't believe really significant change in race relations, particularly in regard to African-Americans and Indians, can occur without confronting the vestiges of slavery and genocide. Limited reforms can be achieved by focusing on diversity in education and employment. However, half and sometimes more of those populations are not even in a position to take advantage of admission to a good college or to apply for a job that requires competitive skills. By looking away from the realities of race and American history, the courts, and society, look away from remedying the contemporary effects of that history.
And as far as the Texas Sodomy ruling, I'm still collecting my thoughts on those Black idiots perpretrating the ex-gay ideology.
