Discrimination: Just A Few More Days Only

In his usual clear, economist's way, Thomas Sowell captures the essence of what "civil rights" are. A calendar from 2005 that extols the things Republicans have done for blacks is upsetting to him. Not that the party should not counter the false portrayal of them as "ant-civil rights" but, he says:

The whole case for civil rights is that every American is entitled to them. Civil rights are not about doing special things for special groups.

For instance, how are civil rights protected when affirmative action means discrimination against Asians and Jews who merit entry into a given college or grad school? I know, it was to be done for a short time and Sandra O'Connor believes it needs just a renewal for say another decade. You 5 year old Jews and Asians (and you Italians, too) do not have to worry when your time comes for higher education. Your hard work will be rewarded in 10-15 years.

Remember Gene Wilder in Stir Crazy? He was doing solitary in "the box". To show the warden could not break him, when they pulled him out, he asks for "just a few more days. I was really getting into myself."
