Time for affirmative action to be based on income, not race

Time for affirmative action to be based on income, not race | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Affirmative action is now another upper-middle class benefit, albeit one reserved for non-Asian minorities.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Ditch Affirmative Action as we know it actually makes sense to me. It would flatten the playing field and help move society away from anything to do with race! There are poor whites, Hispanics, blacks, American Indians and many other races out there - why not make the rules "financial" rather than "racial" - and, while we are at it, find more ways to move AWAY from racial differences and start looking at them more like heritage and nothing more!

BOMBSHELL: New evidence suggests Charlottesville was a complete SET-UP | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
At least one law enforcement officer in Charlottesville, VA has come forward to clear his conscience and reveal the truth — or at least his version of it — that what went down in the city was not only condoned by city governance but was intentional, orchestrated and may have been planned as long ago as May.

Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor

Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it

Voters in Ferguson, Missouri, re-elected Mayor James Knowles III on Tuesday in the first election since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in 2014.

Al Cannistra's insight:

"Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor" - isn't that headline - a bunch of CRAP...   when the news media stops writing slanted headlines - and writes a proper story - race relations will improve again (it is going to take 25 years to recover from 8)....   there were simply 2 candidates and one won. End of story - EXCEPT - if the authors had looked at the Census Bureau they would find about 67% of the population there is BLACK...  well, duh, if the race was all about Black and White who do you think would have won? STOP MAKING IT ABOUT RACE PEOPLE - it is simply about - PEOPLE
