    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?

    keeping things in balance is something very common in eastern philosophy. something sadly rarely seen in western thinking and actions. however i would still prefer to live here.
