I think assuming that just because a person s black they are being profiled in every single situation is ignorant and intellectually dishonest.

>> Women make 4.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs despite being about 50% of the workforce.

The workforce in general makes less than 5% of what the 1%ers make, your point?

>> Women make up 20% of the Senate, despite being about 50% of the population. Women make up 18.9% of the House of Representatives despite being about 50% of the population.

Those are elected positions, so your point is meaningless. Women vote too, yet the numbers are the way they are, grow up and deal.

>> And don't get me started on race! Black men.. blah blah blah

Maybe they should commit fewer crimes and/or act less suspiciously

Just because you don't like reality doesn't make it wrong

It teaches that women are weaker, less capable, and less useful unless given something that man aren't (effectively punishing the male students for no good reason other than they were born male.)

Of course, try starting an official "United Caucasion College Fund"....

This country is so full of $#!+ with it's claims of "equailty" and non-discrimination....

Doctors will NEVER admit they're wrong.

And you're right, they don't know what causes it, why are they so quick to say the vaccines aren't connected?

The Poor Neglected Gifted Child

MitchDev Re:Idiocracy (529 comments)

Do you really not already know the answer to that question in a country where:

1) Many kids "sports" don't even bother to keep score so there are no winners or losers
2) It's almost impossible for a teacher to fail a student who is not performing academically to keep the school funded and avoid angry parents
3) Political correctness prevents simple facts from being even discussed in schools
4) Standards for graduation drop lower and lower almost every year

The Poor Neglected Gifted Child

MitchDev Sorry parents, (529 comments)

but some kids are gifted, and others are just average, and a great many are below average.

We really can't afford to keep footing the bill for the below average and start getting the the gifted into the schooling they need.
