Re: Cults of Personality

OK - this was about Bob's change from the old BBS to this one.



Affirmative Action is a subset of "Diversity". The thing I have been talking about is "diversity". No one seems to be able to...

Re: Cults of Personality

I am not so much scared, but I entirely lose what you are trying to get at there. Are you referring to some Stateside commercial or pop culture thing?





I am not sure there are failings...

Re: Winner takes some

It is a great point. It can just well be that the Democratic voters are split close to 50-50, and so the result.

Re: Cults of Personality

Like you say.

I'm not certain that with "affirmative action", which seems to be a subset of "Diversity", there is an element of people who wouldn't have made the grade to begin with, and they...

Re: Cults of Personality

You have taken the quote entirely out of context. What I said was the group of whites set back by "Diversity", which to me at least when it is invoked is some sort of undefined, I dunno, "thing",...

Re: Cults of Personality

No, that isn't what I'm getting at.

Right now the race issue is being handled in a way that I would call "Democratic style". Hillary Clinton makes the point that basically, you needed an LBJ...

Re: Cults of Personality

Fair enough, bjkeefe. I agree that people for whom race may be an issue, there are also people (but not maybe the exact same people) who won't vote for any candidate who isn't a man.

But I do...

Re: Cults of Personality

It probably has more to do with timing.

In the Gore campaign, he really needed to just emphasize that the good times could just keep going, without getting into unnecessary specifics.

In this...

Re: Cults of Personality

You are still missing it.

There were whites who were privileged. There were other whites who were not so similarly privileged.

Just because they did not suffer under Jim Crow or slavery...

Re: Cults of Personality

I don't know how true that is, except that some comments the Clintons made were portrayed to say something different.

No one in the Democrats is out-and-out saying that Obama is the Affirmative...

Re: Cults of Personality

This is the common fallacy of the race preference supporters. They seem to believe that it was "whitedom" in general that has suffered under the Diversity Policy.

But in fact, wealthy whites...

Re: Cults of Personality

Ha ha! You sure do know everything.

Well, what I am seriously wondering about is that in a country with a history of what best might be termed racial tensions, no one has come out to say that...

Re: Cults of Personality

As someone who would like to vote for the Democrat this time around, this other one is the meme that bothers me the most:

Re: Cults of Personality
