If Sessions had his way every white person would own at least a couple of blacks. He's got that old Alabamy mindset.

We should not judge a person by the content of their character, but rather by the color of their skin. Isn’t that how it goes?

Martin Luther King said, "I have a dream that my four little chi1dren will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Too bad no one was listening then or now.

It should always have been on merit anyway. Why allow someone into a situation they can't handle just because they are a minority? Change the early learning years and the problem takes care of itself. And that means changing the social norms that have created the problems.

ZeebronZ, because for many decades those that could handle the situation were denied the opportunity, and it is still going on today. But with this change it will make it easier to deny a person an opportunity again in this country. Did you and the fake ever consider moving over to Alabamy? I feel sure you both would be welcomed there. Trump might put his library there, however since he's not known to be a reader, a 12 by 40 used mobile home can be used as his library. There will be only one book, " The art of the deal".

This NEVER should have been policy...... Morons get into a school because of the color of their skin and they are not smart enough to do the work...... And a qualified applicant of a different skin color does not get in but are smart enough to do the work. Happens all the time.
