#1 "...remedies for harm attributable to discrimination in society in general will not be granted to blacks if that relief involves a significant cost to whites."
Analysis a decade ago indicated that the economy as a whole loses about $200B/yr complying with affirmative action. It also results in several thousand dollars per capita being transferred from whites and asians to black and hispanics. Sounds pretty significant to me (although the paper was in 85 and the analysis in 1999).

#3 Everyone has two options, they can live in their own reality or someone elses, as the movie The Matrix and Zen seem to intimate.
However the choice can be decided by adopting a Nash equilibrium.
The practical and general implication is that when players also act in the interests of the group, then they are better off than if they acted in their individual interests alone.
Guess which group acts in the interest of the group and which doesn't?

#4 To be taken seriously, you have to be a serious person. Demand that your children excel in math and science and you'll be taken very seriously.

#5 I think the whole issue of slavery is spot on. However 75% of the blacks are no longer on a southern agricultural plantation being owned,supported and housed for their work in the fields. Presently 75% of the blacks are on the Democratic Plantation in all the major cities across the United States. The Democtrats own them and give them food, housing and money in exchange for voting their masters back into office time and time again. The democrats obtain this funding by taxing the non plantation productive workers. Once being given a basic life for free they quickly lose their incentive to work. Each generation becomes more and more dependant on their masters for support. Slavery still exists in the US for 75% of the blacks but it's called entitlements.

#8 Too many forget that 'white privilege' fills a hell'va lot of military cemeteries for which there would otherwise be no rights or country or an environment to bitch about. The fools spouting this rhetoric believe they'd the ones in charge instead of occupying mass graves of their various 'social justice' mentors have created in the last hundred years.

#9 another reason why "crime statistics by race" are forbidden. Race is getting muddied, economic stagnation seems to settle in blue areas. Kagan and Sotomayor will be blights on the USSC for years. Affirmative Action hires. Sowell, et al, would've been better picks
