I agree about knowing history, it's very important. I guess my point is will history be forgotten or ignored when whites are no longer the "majority"? My point about colleges and universities now having more woman attending them is a good example. Title 9 has benefitted woman at the expense of men. So now that things are all equal, will these institutions of higher education amend these policies to some degree. It's a legitmate question to ask.
It is a legit question, which is why I said it will become more of a socioeconomic issue. But don't be surprised if a lot of minorities are still given aid because they don't have as much money as whites

But the reality is the USA is overpopulated. No one wants to talk about that cuz I guess there's nothing we can do about it

See, this is where liberals tend to change the rules. When EOE was began it was about giving minorities and women a better chance at getting jobs. Fair enough, I like the policy and agree with it. However, now that more balance is being obtained (it's no perfect by any means) and whites and males are decreasing in numbers for various reasons, will these same laws that protected people of color and women apply to whites and males? However, you seem to be saying "it's not about jobs anymore, it's about $."

So then, you are saying "no" that EOE won't ever be applied to whites and males because it's not about jobs, it's about wealth? Perhaps I don't understand the reasoning behind EOE policies?

No it won't change if whites become the minority......

That's because affirmative action isn't about leveling the playing field...it's about getting even.

I recall the UM Law School suit where a caucasian woman sued over their admittance scoring that gave an extra 20 points to hispanic and black applicants as the ones selected are those who score closer to the 150 point maximum

......basically making anyone else start in a 20-0 hole before the application was completed. allegedly they are "leveling" the playing field, when the truth is they are saying that blacks and hispanics are too stupid to get into their school without some help.

I find it odd that Asians who are the smallest group of the minorities are not included in this alleged "leveling" of the playing field, despite the affirmative action was implemented under the guise to help "minorities"

Bro, not sure why you're even denying it. You know what you wrote. Not sure why you'd say that then and now take up the cause the other way.

Just bored, maybe? I'll assume it's that.

So, from reading a bit further back, the Rooney Rule is about "giving a chance" to people who are of a different skin colour?
I'm assuming that as a legal immigrant I would get "zero" from the rule, as far as help in my NFL coaching career, my friend from India would also get nothing, ... while an immigrant from Mexico would benefit. WTF?

Your friend from India would certainly qualify as a Rooney rule candidate, the rule now includes all ethnic minorities, not just african americans - so Indian, Chinese, hispanic is all good.

Feel free to correct me here ... aren't Indians considered "caucasian" in the USA?

Pretty sure we're going to get down to splitting hairs here, which is why this "Rooney Rule" would be CRUSHED for it's absurdity in a court of law.

This is the United States. We make the absurd common place.

I'd like to see the NFL implement a Caucasian defensive back and running back program where every NFL team has to have at least ONE. Call it the "LOONEY RULE"

BINGO! but what it boils down to, is quite frankly, GENETICS and testing parameters. Fast twitch vs slow twitch, bone and muscle density differences, and of course IQ differences....see my attachment for further clarification

Hahaha, so there's a lack of qualified minority head coaches for NFL teams to even interview.

Meanwhile Jim Caldwell takes over for repeated NFL failure Cam Cameron at coordinator and turns the Baltimore Ravens offense into Super Bowl winners.

Joe Flacco, a white man, rose to the occasion.

I am waiting for Scandinavian-American Month. Hell Leif Erickson beat Columbus to our Continent by centuries and yet we have to put up with Columbus Day.

We call it Leif Erickson day in my house.

You b****es should all have to eat Lefse, Lubscos (which is the one thing I can cook well), Swedish Meatballs, and pickled Herring while listening to readings of the Hemskringla and the telling of the Norse Myths, my favorite is the one where Loki steals Sif's Hair and Thor makes him replace it with gold thread made by gnomes.

I feel THE MAN is keeping me down!
