Some people are like wheelbarrows; useful only when pushed, and very easily upset. The time to stop talking is when the other person nods his head affirmatively but says nothing.
I don't know what this definition of affirmative action is for some.
Affirmative action was never meant to be permanent, and now is truly the time to move on to some other approach.
