Though Dawn can certainly be my pet
There are few things I hate more than affirmative action. The development of this hate, I think, happened because I grew up in very racially mixed neighborhood and have friends of all different races and religions. I don’t like seeing them treated like white people’s pets. ‘Awww, you cute, stupid black person, I’ll help you succeed, you obviously can’t do it on your own, I’ll lower the standards so you can compete with the much smarter white people.’ It’s enraging. Yaron’s post this morning has my blood boiling.
