    All policies have SOME negative consequences.

    You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

    Attitudes don't change by themselves. It takes the force of law. 

    there's always been affirmative action … i.e. the children of alumni … the children of big donors … a student who did a lot of volunteer work for charities vs a student who had to work at a job when school let out … AA as mandated by law is an attempt to balance it out

    your attempt to push a false narrative is what is feeble

    And quit using the word “Folk”. Coming from you it sounds very disingenuous.

    As a crutch?   folk just don't like to be reminded of their greatest weaknesses do they?

    Enjoy life ?

    You … have … no … idea !!! 

    Well I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey … but I turned myself around.

    We didnt use to institutionally pass unqualified candidates regardless of how they got there. If you were accepted for a variety of reasons, you still had to succeed.

    Yeah, sure. George Bush got into Yale  because of his GPA and SAT score.  With enough tutors anyone could pass college classes.  

    You still have to succeed.  I've worked with many doctors who would not have gotten into medical school with out affirmative action. There were competent and successful.

    Serious question:  What institutions "intentionally pass unqualified candidates regardless of how they got there"?

    Setting aside the admissions discussion for a moment, you still have to pass classes to get a diploma from an accredited university -- and you still have to succeed -- but perhaps you know something I don't or I have misunderstood you, and thus the question.

    Thanks....Mike

    They have systematically lowered the standards for student retention purposes. So a student of recent times would be considered unqualified decades ago. Add in affirmative action and  you arrive at the perception of the lowest common denominator.

    One of the surgeons who put me back together at Vanderbilt Hospital was a lady. She is a wonderful person. She still calls to check up on me a couple of times a year. Says I am one of her miracle patients. 


    She has nice legs also. Wife says it is because she saved me that I think so,,,, I just think she has nice legs.

    What area of medicine is he in? He seems pretty even keeled, in the face of 8 years of hysteria he had to endure.

    Thanks for your response.  You have a good point, however I'm not sure that's quite what Battery had in mind, and even more to the point, I fail to see how it applies to the topic at hand -- affirmative action.

    Thanks for the explanation.  I'm not sure how any of those things you described result in passing grades and diplomas that were unearned.  Getting admitted to a college and actually graduating are two very different things where the former does not in any way guarantee the latter -- affirmative action ends at admission --  but I do appreciate your response...Mike

    Back to the original "riddle" by cyclist. The story states the FATHER died instantly. This leads you to think he is the doctor. It may be subliminal but that's why you don't think the mother is a doctor. Not for any other reason.

    This. It’s definately a mind trick, it isn’t an indication of sexist attitudes.

    It was really a joke with a great in to take a jab at FSU but it did answer your exact question.
    "What institutions intentionally pass unqualified candidates ' REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY GOT THERE ' "  ;)  But thanks in advance for correcting me. Thought the topic at hand was actually cyclist's riddle on gender equality..........LOL

    Just pointing out just how far our wives, sisters and mothers really have come out of misogyny, and what is considered acceptable.

    Perhaps if the surgeon in the silly anecdote had blood coming out of her whatever it would have been easier to guess that she's come a long way baby.
