Where is the check for citizenship?  Legal residency?

In this post racial society, with our post racial president, why don't all children and people have the same opportunity?

Why continue to promote opportunity base on race, ethnic, sex?

I can imagine that businesses in say white areas, with high populations of illegal aliens say from Mexico or Africa, will never qualify because they may not be able to hire illgals, but the illegals ethnic/racial origin will be included in the 'minority requirment'.

Will minority owned business automatically qualify and be exempt from similar racial/ethnic concerns/reporting?

Why don't the Obamacrats treating everyone the same?

All my posts are just my humble opinions.  Please take with a grain of salt.  Smile

It doesn't do any good to hate anyone,
they'll end up in your family anyway...
