    So much illegal ivory there. No wonder we’re poor.

    None who is so blind as he who will not see. Maybe it’s time to take the blindfold off the statue of Justice?

    Well done, Mr. Eagan.

    Sorry, but history, like well “bible histories” prove unanimously that “racism” is past, present, and future, whether within or between tribal groups, or nations, or continents, Man will always define “us vs them” in a permanent cycle of what appears to be a species hate gene. But it’s okay, because humans depend on hating all other species in the animal kingdom that compete with them for space, air, or water, as well.

    There should be the elephant head at the bottom of that ivory tower, still attached.

    There is so LITTLE racism, it’s not worth discussing. The only reason it IS discussed is that the left insists the right is basically a bigoted philosophy, since we disagree with so much govt involvement, such as outdated affirmative action laws. Unfortunately, many who simply don’t follow politics, fall for the left’s accusations on this point.

    Have you ever noticed that “all” conservatives are bigots – except all the ones that YOU KNOW?
    .
    Permanent affirmative action laws say either, that the majority will always be prejudiced, or that minorities need help from the govt to find a job, or both. Both those beliefs are prejudicial and hateful, and both are held by the left today.

    Restraining affirmative action IS restraining racism!

    I’m not in favor of permanent affirmative action laws. Where I work we have an affirmative action program, but it is designed to become irrelevant as soon as certain percentages are reached. The affirmative action category we have had to deal with most has been women. The rule says that in my hiring unit, if the percentage of women is less than 40%, then a qualified woman gets preference over an equally qualified man. (If there was a qualified man but no qualified woman on the shortlist, then the man would be hired.) But as soon as our unit should reach 40% women, the rule would no longer apply. Some years back we got over 40% women, so the rule doesn’t apply any longer. This system worked well for us.

    You say that there is so little racism that it’s not worth discussing. How do you know this? Who gets to decide? The events of the past couple of weeks suggest that racism is still a potent force in the US, and indeed some of the comments posted here suggest the same. I think as a society we have made a lot of progress, but I don’t know that the problem is over. Probably the hardest kind of racism to recognize and deal with is structural rather than personal.

    It was conservatism that put the court into that position.

    Are you allowed to be telling us this?

    John Stuart Mill’ s, father of economics, comment “I did not say all conservative people are stupid, I said all stupid people I had met were conservaive”.

    @lonecat

    How do I “know this”? I don’t; it’s my opinion. And it’s largely the media that gets to decide, for better or worse.
    The events of the past couples of weeks suggest we found two more racists. In a country of >300M, that’s a fairly low percentage. & btw, I haven’t seen any report that they ever managed to do any harm to any minorities – which suggests that whatever racism does exist is pretty ineffective, and THAT speaks well for our country, doesn’t it?

    @ossiningaling

    Yes, I’m allowed, but to tell you what? & why wouldn’t I be? Maybe I’m just moving slow tonight, but I’m not getting your point.

    The most discriminated against group today: people over 50 who are trying to get a job.
