America Is Slightly Less Racist Today

By 6-2 vote, the Supreme Court ruled today that citizens have the right to amend their state Constitutions to end state-mandated racial discrimination (a.k.a. “Affirmative Action”).

The only thing I have to add to the discussion is a point similar to the point I made about Illegal Immigration; Affirmative Action policies harm middle and working class whites to benefit minorities and elite whites. No politician, no old-money family, no TV news anchor has to worry about their son or daughter being denied a higher education slot in favor of an underqualified minority. The white middle and working classes bear the entire burden of affirmative action; and that is an injustice.

There is no White Privilege in America; there is only privilege based on wealth, social status, and political connections. And none of the people enjoying that privilege are willing to sacrifice their own social benefits to help out “underprivileged” minorities; any more than wealthy liberals are willing to give up their own money to address “income inequality.”

And, By the Way, heave you heard about the MSDNC personality who claims that, as a black person, she has no liberty?

  1. White privilege: http://www.theonion.com/articles/white-male-privilege-squandered-on-job-at-best-buy,35835/

    When I hear people like Michelle Obama and loons at MSNBC complain about their sorry lot then I know for sure that the race debt will never, ever be repaid.

    There are too many people who get rich from never-ending race conflict.

  2. So do citizens have the right to amend their state constitutions to ban same sex marriage?

  3. It’s the Age of Obama, Church Mouse; all Constitutional rights can be suspended at the insistence of activist gay folk.

  4. Church Mouse, yeah, good point.

    Minor problem. In order to win the Proposition 8 fight, you must prove that knocking it down actually creates inequality, which is what was shown with Affirmative Action. It was blatant racism in its very wording.

    The real solution is to ban official marriage licenses. In other words, the state cannot sanction it, or forbid it.Let’s get back to common law marriages.

  5. I meet a white woman with a bachelors degree, $50k in debt that was just starting a per diem job in her field a year after she graduated while working full time at a grocery store. If amnesty is passed she might not be able to get a grocery store job thanks to affirmative action Quotas. Six years ago head hunters would be seeking her out to offer her jobs.

    I would like to be judged on merit, win arguments with logic + reason, and keep the government out of my wallet & bedroom

  7. I guess that calls for reparations will now be shelved? Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and his ilk are most hurt.

  8. @ EssEm: Will it be geographically contiguous?

    Let’s get back to common law marriages.

    (Perhaps this comment was meant for a different thread.)

    Understand that “common-law” marriages are a messy recipe for dealing with problems which we the people heap upon the state. Cohabitation gone awry often brings one or both of the cohabitants into contact with the police powers of the state. (Police power generally deals with the state regulation and enforcement to protect the health, safety, morals and general welfare of the people.)

    We people are married, they have taken an oath concerning the health, safety, morals and general welfare of the couple as if they were one. The state, therefore, sees the partners as acting in accord. This is a special form of legal understanding.

    Common law marriage was such a mess in terms of offspring, divorce, inheritance, ownership, etc. that most states had to come up with a separate understanding unique to the state in dealing with “not really married” people.

    The kiss of death for common law marriage as a popular formula is that its understandings are not recognized by all states.
