President Bush has recently been critized by even his own Secretary of State for his words against a Michigan University's policy on admission. Their way of judging which applicants are in or out is a 150 point grading. Blacks, hispanics, and asians receive 20 points automatically simply for being born into their respective races.

Ok, lets think about this here. As I heard on the news yesterday, the famed civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr, which I'm sure 90% of those who support Affirmative Action believe to be their hero, had a dream about a nation where all men are treated equally, regardless of their race.

I'm a young white male. Say that some dude from the projects, who we'll call Tyron, has gotten the same SAT and ACT scores as I. Say his family has the same income as mine. Say we're exactly the same, in all respects, aside from skin color. Tyron will be accepted at this college before I am. I might not even get in, due to the 20 points he gets, due to no personal merit, character, actions, or anything else relevant.

If anyone can call that 'equal treatment', I'd like to have a doctor check if they're brain dead, and show them my middle finger.

Affirmative Action has outlived its usefullness, or at least overstepped its bounds.

I, for one, am going to write the President a letter of support, write Colin Powell a letter similar to this posting, and see what else I can do to make people wake up to the reality of this new trend of reverse racism. This is something that I have experienced first hand. Every day I drive by an all-black university. In high school, one of my classmates, which had worse grades and had been suspended a few times, was offered a full scholarship. I wasn't.

And if nobody posts to this journal entry, I'll be seriously pissed.

I plan to change that somehow. I think I found my cause, and can now stop being a 'rebel without a cause'. :)
