The Case For And Against Discrimination

The Case For And Against Discrimination: Maryland gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Kennedy Townsend made the following statement to explain why she supports affirmative action

“He opposes affirmative action based on race. Well, let me tell you something, slavery was based on race. Lynching was based on race. Discrimination is based on race. Jim Crow was based on race. And affirmative action should be based on race.”

You know what’s funny? I’d say that Townsend just made a great argument AGAINST affirmative action. But then we Conservatives tend to believe that we should live in a color-blind society — unlike liberals who believe that we should discriminate against people based on race.
