Yes I do, and they are perfectly straight after 3 and a half years of braces way back in high school.

Actually those braces sucked. I had a tooth grow in the roof of my mouth because a baby tooth had strong roots and never fell out. They had to cut out the baby tooth to make room for the other one. Then they used the braces to force my back teeth into place and after a while it all just fixed itself.

Aren't you Canadian? What do you know about how America works?

Anyways, yes, that the popular left-wing, liberal talking point, but it's not really accurate. There are plenty of examples of minorities being given unfair and undeserved advantages in some twisted attempts at "fairness."

Yep, Affirmative Action and any sort of "racial quota" is nothing more than government-sponsored racism.

When you go to apply for a job, especially jobs involving the state or county and they give you those silly tests. The test are ranked on ethnic background. Whites are given a harder test then the blacks, but the Hispanics get the easier of the tests.

Affirmative Action was needed in the 60's and 70's due to the long standing black vs white issues. I don't really see the need for it today.

Another thing with Affirmative action is it wasn't only driven by race. It was also a platform for women as well.
