Do you think that Thomas Jefferson meant (when he said) "All Men Are Created Equal" that we're all clones with identical abilities, aptitudes, etc., and that an equality of outcome between various groups could ever be secured? Of course not. He realized that some of us (Willis Hart, for example) are far smarter and thus far more likely to achieve great things than the dummies.
The dummies mostly being black (think Mookie and Ray-Ray). Thomas Sowell, one of the RARE intelligent blacks, has pointed out on numerous occasions that there has NEVER been a society in which the composite ethnic groups have achieved at the same rate. So, yes, an affirmative action program whose goal it is to raise up the dummy blacks (the vast majority of them) is doomed to fail.
Which isn't to say there are not a lot of White dummies, btw. A prime example being wd. He is White and also a HUGE dummy. But he is also a far left Progressive, so that explains that. Progressives being some of the dumbest people on the plant.
