Who Is Being A Racist???

It's all over the headlines of newspapers and foaming out of every computer surfing the web for news. This so called racial discrimination has surfaced it's head again, only this time it's because of a national disaster in the south. I guess any time activists can find a camera willing to tape them beating their drum in a public spotlight, they have to take advantage of it. With all of the ways to spread the word of your cause, it does nothing but demonstrate how desperate some are for air time when it needs to be done on the backs of people that just lost everything. Statistically, more people of African decent live in the southern states. So, I would think the amount footage taken by the media outlets would reflect the same. I cannot help but think that some of these defenders of racial equality have tipped the scales in the opposite direction. Hence, affirmative action. Companies are not quick to hire a candidate that is qualified (which I am presuming is why the are hiring in the first place) because employment priority must be given to persons with ethnicities other than white. Personally, I would be outraged to know I was hired not for my capabilities, but my color. Hmmmmm, isn't THAT discrimination? Of course not! Not when it benefits the minority.
