“Civil rights used to be about treating everyone the same. But today some people are so used to special treatment that equal treatment is considered to be discrimination”. –Thomas Sowell
Thanks. You have a nice blog, I have added it to my blogroll.
Sowell is so concise, so to-the-point, how can you not simply nod in utter agreement?
Who are “some people”? I guess it all depends on who is qualifying the treatment as “special”. “Equal” does not equal “equitable”. If you feed a starving person the same amount of food you’d feed an obese person, the fat one would complain he’s not eating enough, while the starving person would rejoice. If you give each person what they think they deserve, I’m sure you’ll find that the fat person would still want more (witness the constant belly-aching about “lost birthrights” despite the ubiquity of white control of our world) while the starving person will not be able to put so much food away (witness the limited successes of the colored masses). I don’t know Thomas Sowell from shinola but if that’s one of his more brilliant maxims, I don’t care to.
Personally, I will never tire of the special treatment I get from society just for being a nifty Mexican guy. So much special treatment you can’t begin to imagine. I’ve got so much much special treatment from society, above and beyond the equal treatment everyone else gets, that I’m like, “Stop with the special treatment all the time, society. Let a brother suffer a little. Sheesh.” Bucketfuls of special treatment.
