  1. Your point is well taken, my poet friend: down beneath the surface of things we are all in fact equal; however, on the face of the matter we all discriminate on the basis of the color of a person’s skin, the quality of a person’s clothes, the pedigree of a person’s heritage, the brogue of a person’s accent . . . We may think that we don’t but all across America we do . . .

    • so much here to debate – but I’ll keep it to two brief points – it may be a semantic thing, but to discriminate is to choose, to express a preference that is morally neutral – UNFAIRLY consequential discrimination is culturally rooted in tribal impulse both ancient and hardly American – I would argue that America is the most successfully diverse culture in history
