For it or against it?

Why?

I feel the best path is that of no discrimination.

Positive discrimination is however a natural backlash to the massive discrimination that has happened during history. It is one of the oscillations of the energy path.

The context may be extremely complex. Perhaps context is an important consideration...

I think marijuana was associated with the blacks back before it was banned which is why the government made it illegal.

I have a question for whoever wants to answer.

A person's sex is determined by genetics. A man is generally physically stronger than a woman. Is it possible that other things are determined by genetics, for example intelligence? Is it possible that certain races due to genetics are predisposed to be more intelligent than other races. I'm not saying everyone of a certain race is more intelligent than another race just as not all men are stronger than all women. I'm just asking as an overall trend is it possible than people of a certain race are generally more intelligent than people of another race?

Positive discrimination sounds like an oxymoron to me

Even if you discriminate against a million Arabs in the airports, and 10 of them turn out to be terrorists, 999,990 innocent Arabs were therefore wrongly accused.

I have the same problem with "positive discrimination" as I do with drug tests. It says that you are guilty until proven innocent. We assume you are guilty, if you say you aren't then prove it! Show us your urine sample, do a background check!

It goes against everything the legal system should stand for, but unfortunately, as time goes on, stands for less and less


--------------------
So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

I think it was the mexican soilders as they smoked it to relieve stress. Don't remember at the moment. Others say its because the paper and timber industries weren't doing well in competition with the hemp. Someone might be able to clear this up but I know it was a closeminded reason.

Yes one race is more intelligent than another, if you use the true definition of race. For instance Homo neanderthalensis was probably not as smart as Homo sapiens.

But all the different skin colors of people dont make them really different "races" more like different "strains". Its actually comparable to mushrooms i think. You have cyans which are more potent than cubies, but if you compare different strains of cubies you find not much difference. Right now my race is the smartest race on the planet, the human race.

Your question is good however, because the "races" of people developed at different times. From what i have read and learned...the smartest people in the world have always been the ones that are the least xenophobic, and the ones who carry on the tradition of the greek classics. The ancient greeks were the first to toy with the idea of using empirical evidence. These ideas bounced around the Mediterranean for many years, and every civilization that adopted it prospered. So I think a group of peoples intelligence is not based on genetics, but on culture and geography.
