    Affirmative Action.

    I know I will somehow end up getting crap for this..Anyhow..I do think Affirmative Action is racist.What it's saying is that people of minority groups are all underprivileged and need to be handed advantages.How is that not racist?

    Fighting over race is like fighting over your favorite m&m. They're all made out of the same thing, and thinking they're not makes you look really stupid.

    Say as you do and do as you say. Bottom line. Actions mean more then words sometimes. Granted words are nice but deserve action behind them.
