SeanM BS: Devil Racism Scores Big (63* d) RE: BS: Devil Racism Scores Big 23 Jun 03


The problem is that there's plenty of room for debate on what exactly SHOULD be the "cure".

It's a fact that for some considerable time in the US, if one is of non-Caucasian appearance, one faced considerable difficulty doing the basic tasks that a Caucasian would be able to accomplish - going to school, buying a home, finding employment, that sort of thing.

The debate comes in whether this is still necessary, and if so how to address the issue.

I'll make the assumption (given the post's lean) that Mr. Hardy is of the opinion it's either no longer necessary, or drastically overcompensating.

Me? I'm of the opinion that there's too much in the way of politics to see through to the truth. I *know* there is still discrimination out there, as related by friends. But then again, I *know* from personal experience that there's also discrimination from the other side as well.

I suspect that, as with most harshly debated and divided issues, that the truth (and solution) lies somewhere between the poles.
