Meh, that's a copout to me, Piglet. A man should be judged on his qualifications for the job - straight up. I think this whole notion of institutional racism is blown out of proportion. I'd bet just about anything blacks are over-represented in government jobs, and public universities. . .
There's a simple fact that black people find it harder to be employed because of the colour of their skin. And in some fields the colour of your skin is a qualification in itself. Policing for example. Even law.
Then why is it that middle and even upper-middle class people benefit from it just as much, if not more than those from disadvantages families, and communities? And what about disadvantged white people - why can't they just base it on socioeconomic factors, rather than immutable characteristics? Woulnd't that make more sense?
Haha yes you appear to keep a calm demeanor, but you work yourself up into a lather at times! why did you dodge my question about affirmative action? How is that not racist? Judging one differently because of the color of their skin - that's pretty much what racism really is (unless you believe the afrocentrist definition).
