模倣子 Endgame Politics of Liberation

I agree with what you say. I agree that Obama "does not represent 'Black People in America'" which supports all the more what I said about my concern for the "y'all got a President, so quit complaining" thing. I am at least somewhat aware of the details of his background, etc.

"Equality for equality's sake" and "Affirmative Action" are fraught issues, for the reasons you state. But we have to admit that we have a very long and sordid history of racism and sexism as a country, which some would say lodges an "historical burden of proof" that equal opportunity finally does, in fact, exist. "Any kid can be President" rings hollow until any kid actually has become President, so to speak.

But you're absolutely right, and it's a very fine line to tread and implementation is key, if any hand is to be taken in it at all. I am alarmed by what appears to be a class of professional whiners that have sprung up over the past few decades who claim to be about liberation and the advancement of whatever group the claim to represent, but their actions give the lie to this.

Any time an "Our Group Center" is set up on public funds or some law or money set aside, it should be with a sundown clause, or everybody should be worried, because then you're creating a group of people with vested interest in said group, be they women, minorities, the disabled, whomever, NEVER getting liberated or integrated. If anything, set aside a huge BONUS for the final staff members who close the doors and turn out the lights once the goal is achieved.
