Tests are bad. We just need to determine demographic percentages of government jobs, and put appropriate racial/ethnic applicants in those postitions. Do we do DNA test to determine appropriate miority status?

Facetiousness will get you nowhere.

tests are great at seeing what you know. What they aren't too great at is determining what you're good at

Im against that too. Objective scores on tests are stubborn facts. The rigor of science is hard to be biased about.

Okay mister scientific objective not-a-raaciist-b0ne-in-my-body, answer me this:

How do you feel about the fact that the proven wealthy mentalmidg.ets are given the chance for higher education over exponentially smarter lower-income kids? How do you feel knowing that you may be getting the smartest of the wealthy white people for a doctor, but one who is still immensely inferi0r to the poor min0rity kid who couldn't find the money for college?

My kids' school district has both very poor and very wealthy - it spans from 1st ring suburb to 3rd ring and the kids in the Minneapolis district have open choice as a result of an ACLU win.

They adopted the Naglieri Non-Verbal test for GATE. http://thinkingtolearn.com/nnat.htm It may not have been perfect, but I think it identified a lot more kids that would have been missed with some of the other tests.
12:02 AM on 06/30/2009
Study, pass the test, work, there are billions of dollars in grants, loans for qualified people. Overcoming adversity makes victory that much sweeter--not by ushering in people who are not qualified. Still would not take my child to a doctor if there is the remotest possibility that he or she is a product of Affirmative Action when there are so many more who clearly are not.

You are full of shiit. When your ne0c0n gods pillaged that money and gave it to their wealthy buddies, it all but ended the chances for lower-income kids to succeed. Win-win for the wealthy power-hungry thei.ves---education and "status" for them, more staff for their wa.lma.rts and sweattsh0ps.

Hard to study when your stomach is growling from hunger some nights. Can't keep the grades up so easy when you're working a parttime job to help your family make ends meet while the well-to-do kid takes tennis or golf lessons. Easier to get in medical school when your daddy is a member of the same country club as the dean of the medical school.
The minds may be equal, but situations are never exactly the same.
If you're not qualified, you wouldn't make it even if you are given the chance. The problem is getting the chance.
Imagine a 100 yard dash. Two runners have the same speed, but one has a 20 yard head start simply because of advantages in life. Affirmative action is about evening the playing field for everyone, not giving someone a chance who doesn't deserve it. The Hannitys of the world refuse to believe we're not all starting at the same point.

Compassionate Conservatism at it's finest. It starts here... Then it tortures:

Then is comes after Americans:

I know your are a half wit, but the clue is that "morality" is based on a set of rules. Are you defining those rules? Based on what? Don't bother to respond, you don't think.

People with those type morals, don't recognize rules.

On December 1, 2005, Yoo appeared in a debate in Chicago with University of Notre Dame professor Doug Cassel. During the debate Cassel asked Yoo, "If the president deems that he's got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person's child, there is no law that can stop him?", to which Yoo replied "No treaty." Cassel followed up with "Also no law by Congress -- that is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo...", to which Yoo replied "I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do that." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Yoo

They think rules apply to others, but to themselves.

Society determines its mores, also known as morality. What's hard to understand about that?
