    Georgia keeps using slavery to teach school kids math.


    Politician calls slavery a 'blessing in disguise' for blacks.


    Affirmative action will be front and center as the SCOTUS revisits its narrowly endorsed 2003 decision to allow colleges to factor the race of applicants into admissions decisions.

    Don't think there's still discrimination in America? Wish people would just stop playing the 'race card'?

    If slavery ended in the 1800's why are there still so many stereotypical and unintelligent comments and actions towards ethnicity in America today? Who/What is feeding this race-bias machine?

    How do a people put the past (of slavery/racism) behind them when it's continuously being placed before them?

    I'm not quite sure what this picture and photoshopped caption has to do with the topic. Care to elaborate?

    Slavery and racist comments/jokes have nothing to do with each other, and simply because someone heard a remark made about them, or was called a name doesn't mean they should get "reparations". Don't like it? Look into repealing the 1st amendment then.

    I always say stereo types exist for a reason, think about it. It applies across the board, not with just one certain ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

    Actually, it was one teacher, not "Georgia." The teacher has since resigned, after learning that you can't reason with stupid people. As much as you people like to ridicule the South, the math problem is over language contained in the U.S. Constitution, by the way.

    Politician calls slavery a 'blessing in disguise' for blacks.

    OK, why is it not better for the descendants of these slaves to be born here, than in Liberia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, or pretty much anywhere in Africa? What he said seems to be literally true - a bad thing for them, which ended with a positive result. Their descendants now live in one of the least racist countires you could ever visit, where a black man can be elected president for no more reason that that he is black. Try that in Europe.

    I guess "not PC" doesn't mean they have an argument that it's not true - it's "just bad.":rofl:
    Seems to me that stereotypes only survive if people can see evidence of them on a regular basis - otherwise, they simply fade away. Racism, in turn, survives when races are treated separately and unequally, as with affirmative action.
