So, they agreed that the solution to racial discrimination is more racial discrimination. And they wonder why folks don't think much of politicians.

There is a difference between affirmative action and affirmative recruitment. The first is giving slots based on race the second is recruiting eligible minorities based on merit.....competive recruitment for qualified candidates does not give plus points based on skin color or gender.

that is a difference that makes allthe difference

qualified people is what is needed, not getting points just for skin color
Candidates for U.S. Senate Tim Kaine and George Allen faced off in a debate in Richmond on Monday night, the second such contest in this closely-contested race. There were few heated moments, as the debate format allowed for very little back and forth between the candidates.

Each one hammered home the themes of their campaigns. Kaine repeatedly tried to make the case that he'd legislate in a bipartisan way, trying to draw lines between himself and the Democratic establishment in Washington. Allen discussed Kaine's close alliances with D.C. Democrats and relentlessly hammered Kaine's support for defense sequestration cuts.
