Racial Preferences: Unfair and Ridiculous

You left out the most important reason why racial preferences are to be shunned. Its because they are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It is a denial of equal protection of the law to provide preferences for anyone based on race, color or national origin and that is exactly what the social engineers at our top universities and colleges have been doing for years. NO exceptions anymore. Stand on your own two feet and your own merits, not the blood of some ancestor 5 generations removed.

If Obama is re-elected he will probably pick 1 or 2 more far-left judges in the next 4 years.

And with hordes of non-white people pouring into this country it is only a matter of time before legal anti-white discrimination is the law of the land.

Washington Post editorial writer and liberal blogger Jonathan Capehart is puzzled. Why does the "non-issue" of Harvard Law professor and Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry "require so much attention?" he asked last week.

When Warren was teaching at Pennsylvania, Texas and Houston law schools, she identified herself as Indian -- or, to be politically correct, Native American.

Then she was hired at Harvard and dropped the Native American from her biographical description. Harvard Law today says it has one faculty member of Native American heritage. But it won't say which one.

Capehart argues that...
