kmassey, you are obviously the product of the dumbed-down public education system. Don't you resent the fact that you graduated at least from something and still can't spell simple words like "cite", "bias" and "failures"? You apparently only absorbed the Liberal thought process which blames the system for everything. When did the "few years" of overcoming discrimination begin? With LBJ's Great Society in the mid-60's. News flash: that was almost 50 freakin years ago.
