Interesting California referendum on race
    #1807558 - 08/12/03 11:27 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

California will be having a referendum to decide if race can be used by employers, schools, doctors etc. A so called "colorblind" society would exist if passed. I was trying to find a link for this but couldn't... I saw it on the news though. What do you think of this or any other aspect of race relations in the USA? I think it is a step in the right direction of ending many forms of discrimination.

It's the way it should be.

Race, pro OR con, has no place as a consideration for anything.

Among other things it creates bitterness in those not "special" enough to be favored, and it treats those who are favored as incompetent buffoons who couldn't succeed without special treatment.

btw, it also means no more affirmative action if passed.

"Affirmative" Action was always a bad idea.

you are all closet racists.

you acknowledge white privilege, yet oppose the only proposed
correction to white privilege, and it's not because you have a better alternative, it's because you want to retain racial supremacy.

I don't believe even you hillybilly neo con's are slow enough to think
that things will just "work out" by themselves... so there has to be malicious intent, like LDS voiced --

"all the minorities I've known who support AA are lazy niggers 'n spics" (paraphrased..)

racists!

as malachi voiced:

"whites are the devil and should be killed off for the betterment of everyone else on earth! they are a greedy, warmongering bunch who are no good for anything. there's no good white but a dead white, and every last one of those dirty, filthy whities should be taken out and shot~!" (paraphrased).

yeah right, all I've ever espoused was that white people don't know shit about living. this is grounded in the fact that our cities are built more with our cars in mind than us.

you people are the racists, as you are keen on holding up white privilege.

what else to expect from a buch of cheap-labor conservatives?

why don't you people go burn some witches?

Anybody who doesn't support affirmative action is a racist?

More like anybody who does support affirmative action is racist because it supports racism against whites, asains, and indians (from India)

He called us racists first. I was just returning the favor, and stating the obvious.
