Virginia Senator Webb Calls for End to Diversity Programs: "Sen. Jim Webb is calling for an end to government-run diversity programs, saying they've only disadvantaged poor whites and hurt the cause of racial harmony.In a column that appeared in Friday's Wall Street Journal, Webb argues that diversity programs have 'marginalized many white workers.'He argues that the programs now jump new immigrants over similarly situated whites, and that diversity efforts now slight black Americans who were their original beneficiaries.Webb spokeswoman Jessica Smith said the senator feels the column speaks for itself and would not comment on it.The issue of ethnicity helped Webb win his seat in 2006 when Republican Sen. George Allen called a Webb aide of Indian descent 'macaca,' a slur in some cultures.

I'm all for this, an end of affirmative action, which actually was the only way the current president would have even gotten close to where he is as now we see the pitfalls of' degreeing' and 'providing diplomas' to people who are far below the expected levels of excellence once needed to do so, which has been deemed "racially discriminatory".
What affirmative action was ridiculously supposed to bring an end to and has not. Rather, it's created a class of indoctrinated idiots and people ignorant to the real facts in the real world, many of whom have been 'given' what they 'have' by virtue of their skin color, as opposed to the others, who are denied this for the very same reason.
And frankly, that's bullshit from someone who supposedly graduated from what's supposed to be our finest learning institutions, which we know damn well he could never have passed muster on merit alone, nor afforded for the same, damn reasons.
There's as many white people out there who can't afford Harvard and Columbia as people of color, and you can bet your failing farm they don't get the financial assistance a black, poor person does, and I know.
Why I know is because my younger brother went to Cornell and Harvard and got dick, because our mother and father[although our parents were divorced] were both considered 'too wealthy' for any financial assistance other than Pell grants, despite the fact that my mother's income they considered was mostly my father's alimony and child support provided at the time.
Was it easy for us? No.
