Comment: Regardless of my personal views,

(See in situ)


Regardless of my personal views,

I am not politically opposed to any kind of "affirmative action" which does not involve coercion. As an example, I have given money to United Negro College Fund. However, you are correct that any kind of preference given anyone because of their race by the government is absolutely, positively immoral, because of its zero-sum nature, and its use of resources stolen from the populace.

It is really odd how MLK's vision of a "colorblind society" has been corrupted by liberals into a "color hyperaware" society. Just as conservative's "support for American liberty" has been corrupted into legal prohibitions against flag desecration. Symbolism winning out over substance.
