"Alex, "Advancement of 'Colored People'" is promotion of one race over others. " No Steven, all those groups are aimed at evaluating people of color to an equal level with white people. Equality and equity is the opposite of promoting one race over the other.

Give me a break. I see you spouting far right wing rhetoric all the time. Do you support big government spending? If not, why do you supporting spending tons of money locking non-violent criminals instead of investing in preventive measures?

Alex, now what do you suppose happened to all the Native American Indians, were they historically marginalized? And where is there equal opportunity? Just saying.

I don't understand your point..... Native American Indians suffered cultural and physical genocide. And, there isn't real equal opportunity for Native American Indians......

Well you are on here spouting about saving all the dope smokers from jail, and where is the equal opportunity for everyone who is not white. I just thought you might be forgetting about the Native Americans, I didn't see you on the ban wagon for them. But I do admit SOME of the Indians are getting back at the white and any other color humans. They got them Casino's going and taking all their money back from us.
