Rights are inherent. They aren't given by the government.
Blacks' rights were infringed upon in all the above said categories. The various governments wrote legislation denying blacks the right to go to a public school to which they were admitted. The various governments also wrote legislation banning blacks from eating in certain restaurants/sections of restaurants. Further, the governments wrote legislation cowtowing to racist unions and racist special interests in order to keep blacks in menial jobs through liscencing for "public safety" (yeah right) and other nonsense reasons.
whites never gave up shit they were doing voluntarily....look how whites file lawsuits when they cannot even get in college, always mention "dem blacks" as the reason.....while leaving the lower scoring white kids the f-k alone
So, if they started targeting both white and black low-achieving admitees, you wouldn't have a problem?
so let me guess...do you think blacks would have had the high level of acheivement in higher-education without AA?
Unless there are people sorting out the black applications to reject them, it'd probably be about the same. The problems are in the earlier schooling at this point.
I doubt it...hell look at Texas A&M.....even with the Supreme Court ruling...they still said they would not use race at all....their incoming freshman class was 82% white.....at a STATE school.....
Any break down of the applicants and corresponding test scores/GPAs? Wouldn't you need this for an accurate assesment of whether people were being targeted by race?
Anyway, this is all off topic. My point was that the government needs to be limited. Once it goes beyond its enumerated powers, it poses a danger to all of us.
