    I personally think people should be judged on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin, but that's just me.

    They need to expand it to include the important issues. Like acting awards

    Chris had no choice. AL and Jesse put him in a corner. He didn't say something, he's an Uncle Tom. They fucked up what act he was originally going to do for the show.

    At the end of the day Chris has to protect his image with his primary fan base.

    It was disappointing because he was always one to call it like it is.

    I'm protesting the Basketball Hall of Fame for not letting in enough white players this year.

    Isn't it odd that as a 2 term black President leaves office the race discussion seems more heated than ever?

    Are you saying whites aren't given a fair chance in the NBA?

    I will take it one step further. When a white guy scores in the nba it should count as 4 points.

    I was reading an article from a school, it think it may have been Princeton, Yale or another Ivy League school like those, that did their own internal study and it showed to be a failure for the student cause the school was having to take someone that they would not have admitted. Not to say that the student wasn't bright and have good academics, it's just that many couldn't handle the curriculum so it made them drop down to the easier majors like African-American studies which is a low paying field.

    They said affirmative action on Tier 1 campuses is one of the problems holding minorities down financially. That if they had gone to a Tier 2 school they would have been able to handle majors that would have benefited them more financially like Law or Medicine, etc.


    I think if minorities really want to prove they want true equality they need to denounce all the programs and entitlements and show they are willing to work for it.
