    I think we are going backwards

    when it comes to becoming equal. First, we discriminated blacks and any alien in our country, then they became equal. But apparently the racisism wasn't decreasing fast enough so they go on to create even MORE policies that claim to offer equality. It's NOT equality. Why should...
