What do you think? Is "diversity" something universities should be focused on? Is it about diversity or fairness?
In the US, the most deleterious effects of racism are translated into socioeconomic oppression and lack of mobililty. Addressing those obstacles should go a long way to get underserved kids opportunities, whether or not they lacked them due to racism or something else.
There was recently a post here about a pew study of 'intermarriage': http://hubski.com/pub?id=17965
I find the notion of 'intermarriage' to be a bit offensive. It's a nice way of saying "different people marrying each other". Assuming that someone is different is a great way to look ignorant.
I once went to Nordstroms to buy a nice pair of shoes. I had just been moving, and I was in really shitty clothes. The first salesman I met wouldn't give me the time of day. The second guy was cool, and I bought some shoes. I would hate to be a well-to-do black man trying to get those shoes in shitty clothes. Fuck that bais that says he is poor twice over. That's the logic affirmative action is based on.
