Racial Quotas fall off all lists of preferences
This was a response to an article in the Fresno Bee that I wrote some time ago on an issue that is important in the U.S.as well as India, (to uplift Black Untouchables/Dalits),Brazil and South Africa.
It was a thought based on research on that issue.
Once again, an article that clearly exposes the prevailing hypocracy of
the conservo-racist element comes to light. Jeff Jacoby's (Fresno Bee,
Wedmesday May 10, 2000) observations on the so-called "opposite" clamor
for remedies to make up for past racism, slavery, discrimination,
lynching, land theft (the Washitaw Territories stolen from the
aboriginal Blacks of the Mississippi Valley are still being fought in
court to this day, and in fact some has been returned), and other
atrocities against Blacks throughout history to this very day, should
not be remedied, clearly gives credence to those who say that paying
reparations for the holocaust committed against particular groups should
not be done.
The irony of the newly "rightwing" former leftists who are now on the
conservo-racist attack on Black people is that these same hypocrites
will never stand by and watch Germany, Austria or Turkey deny paying
raparations to the victims of genocides perpetrated by these nations.
Anyone can proclaim the constitutitn as "colorblind," clearly that's
their opinion. To millions of Blacks in this nation, the constitution
is so color conscious that it does not even recognize Black people as
full human beings, thus to Black people, the universal and ancient
African constitution is more relevant to any move they make in making
sure their human rights are respected. Truely, Blacks are full human
beings and the world recognizes that...ancient, natural and moral laws
Again another attack on Black 'leaders," who were chosen to be "leaders"
by some of their very attackers. Again, how ironic. As a mater of
self-preservation, Black people never depend on leaders but on
traditional lore, the written word and customs of human and natural
rights. Those who attempt to violate these rights will and usually are
met with violation of their rights or some form of retaliaion.
Polls from professors and college students from institutions that breed
the most racist types in American society is totally absurd and
meaningless. However, what is even more hypocritical about this
so-called "antiaffirmative action stance" is that these students and professors who are against
progress for Blacks have absolutely no problem with other people
benefitting from affirmative action, including people from foreign lands
who steal American sectets to send to their homelands and who use these
secrets and technologies to challenge America. That clearly shows how
intelligent some of these professors and college students really are.
Also, at the present moment, while these hypocrites are pretending to be
against affirmative action, the poorer of the majority classes are now
entering and enrolling into Black colleges in the South and applying for
student scholarships to attend these Black colleges and universities.
Clearly, the Zogby International poll does not seem to bring out the
facts. What they should have done was
1. Find out what percentage of whites, Blacks, Hispanics,
Asians, white women and others
benefit from affirmative action at this very
2. Find out the actual number of these people
who benefit from affirmative action.
3. Find out how many of these non-Black
groups who would out of principle, give up t
their affirmative action benefits to those it
was originally intended for; that being people
denied opportunities based on
policy, people systematically oppressed and enslaved to make
a society wealthy, people (Black people) who once owned over one
third of North America but lost their lands
due to official church policy and colonial
None of these people who claim to be against affirmative action would
ever want to take the steps that are inevitable in a few years, if the
reall understand that Blacks have a valid claim and that wasting time
begging for affirmative action, which has been showered to these other
groups since the sixties and not to Blacks.
Those who responoded to that poll are nothing but the world known
hypocrites that many people accuse some of us Americans of being.
Hypocracy can be proven simply by comparing the responses of the people
polled and the actual reality:
"It is hard to shake the feeling that the public is fed up with being
sorted by color." Well, Ask the question like this, "how many of you
have Black ancestors and how many of you would be Black for a period of
Are these the same people who about two years ago who responded through
a poll that whites were more intelligent than Blacks? If they are so
fed up with being sorted by color, then why are they not upset with
swallowing in the same old racist stereotypes about Black people. What
they are fed up with is that Black people are still proud to be Black
regardless of what others think.
"Professors at the University of Connecticut disapproved of preferences
in faculty hiring by a ratio of 2 to 1." Again, another exercise in
racist hypocracy. If these people are so against preferences, then why
is there a disproportionate number of faculty from foreign nations,
including nations in Asia that are in direct competiton with the U.S.,
who will use American technology and knowhow to challenge American
domination. And to these professors, Blacks are pioneers in the
development of high technology in the U.S., but Blacks to do not steal
american technology for foreign lands. To deny Blacks entry into
American colleges paid for by Black taxpayers is a crime. To allow
American universities to be dominated by others who are potential
military and economic adversaries of the U.S. is criminal.
"Schools should give minority students preference in the admissions
process," 77.3% disagreed. "Students in every category opposed
affirmative action: whites 79.5%; blacks, 51.9%; Hispanics, 71.4%;
Asians,78.1 percent, others, 78.1%"
Here is the clincher among these groups who are the primary
beneficiaries of affirmative action, since the perception is that Blacks
are the greatest beneficiaries, which is a blatent lie.
white women = 80% of affirmative action
white males = 10%
Hispanics, Asians (Others) = 6%
Blacks = 4% of affirmative
Now the above numbers are a more accurate
account of who actually benefit from affirmative action in the United
States today, and for the past thirty years. Why are the
anti-affirmative action people not attacking those who benefit the most
from affirmative action today?
They woun't because the attack on affirmative action is a racist attack
on Blacks that is totally wrong and will never eliminate affirmative
action or set-asides.
However, the continued racist attack on Blacks is now leading to the
call for reparations and for a separate electorate, and saparatism
through economic and political independance.
