Speaking of the UNFAIRNESS of Affirmative Action, I detest that people from other countries, such as Hispanics, West Indians and Africans are afforded Affirmative Action for American racism that NEVER HAPPENED TO THEM!
This would be like an Afro-American getting some sort of reparations for slavery forced upon Jamicians! Why? We were not Jamicians when slavery was practiced!!! Why should we BENEFIT from Black Jamican miserY?
All these "identities" need to be re-thought and done completely over! This is also a very good reason why Blacks who are not Afro-Americans have no business checking anything other than Black! None of this "African-American" bullshit!
One thing I can say about Mariah Carey, with her Irish mother and all, she can at least SAY she was a descendent of American slavery and the Afro-American community unlike a Nigerian-American and other peoples who are currently beneifiting from the term "African-American" the most!
If anybody gets "benefits" from MY suffering I want it to be MY OWN CHILDREN (mixed raced or not) not people from overseas!
