You seemed to have either missed or twisted my points.

Maybe affirmative action and scholarships for minorities aren't a perfect solution, but something is needed to help a kid who grows up with the cards stacked against them try and build a decent life.

Why don't you walk around the neighborhoods around Clay and Breckinridge Streets in Louisville? Or how about the Portland neighborhood? Do those kids have the cards stacked against them because of color? If so, what about the white ones? These are black and whites in the SAME socio-economic area.

If we were all the same, there wouldn't be racism, but at the same time it sounds pretty boring.

My point is that we ARE all the same on the Fool. Does it seem boring or does our diversity still shine through? What makes diversity appealing? Only looking different? Or sharing different ideas? I feel that the former seems rather shallow.
