Once upon a time white men ran America. We became the freest, most prosperous, best-educated nation in the known universe.
Then we realized that we were ignoring a significant amount of capability among non-Whites. So we voted them equality under the law. And became better.
Then we realized we were ignoring a significant amount of capability among women. So we voted them equality under the law. And became better.
Then we voted – and allowed – the pendulum to swing way past equality and into favoritism. The grievance industry was born. Equality no longer was good enough. Rather than accepting equality and moving forward as equals, past “grievances” had to be “righted.” And Political Correctness was born. Society has been going downhill ever since.
What needs to happen is that all forms of discrimination based on gender or skin color need to be terminated. NO more Affirmative Action. NO more set-asides. NO more PC infantilism.
Just equality and merit: You bust you ass and make it – or you don’t. And if you don’t, maybe there’s a neighbor or a church to help you out, because if you didn’t try hard enough to succeed on your own, sucks to be you, and if you aren’t good enough to succeed on your own, sucks to be you. In neither case do you have any call on my children’s standard of living or free future.
So, kids at pampered colleges and universities; Blacks whining about racism & slavery (you weren’t owned and we didn’t own you and you should be thanking the muslims who enslaved you and sold you and the shippers who brought you here that you no longer are living in W. Africa); women whining about men being mean: STFU, quit asking for favors we voted you voluntarily and go make it on your own. Or not. I really don’t care. But quit asking for more more more and bust your own ass.
