Things Aren't Very Different, After All...

Preferences Forever?

The University of Michigan's president does her best George Wallace impersonation.

From the outraged cries of affirmative action diehards, you would think the dark night of fascism was descending with the passage of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative. Mary Sue Coleman is president of the University of Michigan, which has already spent millions of taxpayers' dollars defending its racial preferences in courts. She addressed what Tom Bray of the Detroit News called "a howling mob of hundreds of student and faculty protestors" last week.

"Diversity matters at Michigan," she declared. "It matters today, and it will matter tomorrow." Echoes of George Wallace, who in 1963 declared from the steps of Alabama's Capitol: "I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."

Set asides and slide-bys for blacks doesn't look very different to me. If diversity were truly important to them, they'd include more Asians...

It's a more subtle form of racism, and it's still aimed at blacks, especially! How arrogant to say that blacks are to stupid to make it on their own!
The only preference G*D has, is wheither you belong to HIM or not!

And many black people do not even have the sense to understand that AA is an insult!
