Basically, the students are somewhat protesting a new practice that may be put into effect in California (and possibly branch off into other parts as well) that will give ethnic students an advantage over white students, for the simple want of the college to be "diverse."

Now I'm all for racial equality, and I'm not a racist or anything, but I agree with the message the students are trying to give off. I have no problem with racial equality, but I want it to be just that; racial equality.

What are the opinions of the other OT goers?

Alright, so I've started experimenting with alcohol (only 20 so I can't go out to bars yet) and last weekend my brother and I were chillin out, watching netflix, and I started drinking at around 10 in the morning. I get tipsy and keep around that level till about 6 PM, then after the buzz wore off I felt like shit. It wasn't necisarily a headache, the best I can describe it is how you feel when you are really fucking tired but not sleepy. Anyway I tried to get feeling better by drinking water but I didn't feel any better until I woke up the next morning.

It's not that interesting, but at least it's not some faggot thread about people talking about how "alpha" they are, and how much better they are than everyone else.

and @ Breadsticks:

Were you meaning that the student's views are correct in that it is stupid that they are giving other ethnicities an advantage, or that the other ethnicities SHOULD get an advantage?

i meant it's dumb to give anyone any kind of advantage based on race, that's obviously inherently racist and is the exact opposite of what we should be doing

so yes, i agree with the students

If our society had racial equality, then things like this would never be suggested. I'm not a huge fan of affirmative action for a number of reasons, mostly due to problems of effectiveness and poor implementation, but calling affirmative action categorically racist requires blinders of the sort that only privilege can provide.

Personally, I find that racial equality actually is present in our society. It's not perfect, but it may never be, or at least will take many more years. However, this is NOT a step in the right direction. Where is racial equality when one race goes from being treated worse, to being treated better than others? Each should be treated the same, and this (what the admissions office is suggesting) is basically having one treated better than the other. What part of this will actually encourage racial equality? It will only further cause those that are racist to have even more hate towards other races because they will be treated better. Having just gotten into college I don't have to worry as much about this in regards to college admissions, but what's to stop the "diversity" card from branching off into other things such as the work force, or graduate schools? It is racism, but just reversed from the usual case. I have no problem losing out on a job opportunity, or a spot at a college to a person of another race IF said person deserved it more than I. However, if said person simply gets it because of his/her race (or gender too, but that's a whole other argument,) I will have a problem with that. The best man (or woman) should get the job, not the most "needed" race.
