Response to Jackie Wilson Said (Original post)

Sun Apr 17, 2016, 12:32 PM

1. His whole attitude about affirmative action when he was in law school is astonishing.

So he resented people possibly feeling he didn't belong there because of the other less accomplished black students that got in. As if he could have overcame all the obstacles all by himself, being such a stellar prospect, and ended up being the only one on campus?

So then all the racists would have admired him and accepted him as their equal I suppose? If anything, on his own with no other protection, they may have killed him. He played right into the hands of the very people that would still tie him to a tree and whip him over the woman he's with.
