Judging Equally

To all those people who think that a "no" vote on Sonia Sotomayor is a vote against Hispanics and other majorities, and implies some sort of racism:

Get off your faux moral high horse and realize that equality means equal justice for ALL, and that the reason people like Martin Luther King, Jr. risked their lives day in and day out was to ensure that ALL people had that right to be treated and judged on the same plane, not just a select group of minorities.

This also includes the right to be passed up for a job based on merit, qualifications and past actions.

Thanks for listening.

Agree 100%. I wouldn't want a job solely b/c of my Hispanic or female status, I want a job because I'm the best one for it.

Ditto on Venti's comment.

IMO, Affirmative Action has become a hindrance. If you are a competent, qualified minority, you have to work a lot harder just to prove that you're where you are because you earn it by way of your education, skills, experience, work ethics, and qualifications, not because you're a minority!

Affirmative action(noun): a policy which attempts to prevent discrimination on the basis of race, sex, or creed by mandating discrimination on the basis of race, sex, and creed.

I wish you well :) Melek
