    Black People : NAACP / Democratic Pres Candidates

    I think the real discussion is the inclusion of ourselves in the complete political process. Republicans are in power. The President and the majority of the House and Senate.

    Black People : NAACP / Democratic Pres Candidates

    affirmative Action/college admittance Thanks for the comment. I have been in the position to see first hand how companies look at where a black applicant went to school and determine if that student was admitted based on race. I agree that diversity is to the benefit of a schools total...

    Black People : Supreme Court Decision

    If I'm a black person with an undergraduate degree considering a career in Law... do I really want to enroll in a law school where I'll be looked at as someone who got in just because I'm black or the criteria for me was lower than it is for everyone else.
