Tolerant of how life is and just accepting your shortcomings. This is what you do right? Let's tolerate these minorities. They are poor and not privileged.
If we set standards for the American public than we would be deemed racist right?
Unfortunately, this is how it is.
Minorities and women are at a historical disadvantage compared to white men. It's not their fault, and it's also not our fault. But that's the way it is.
There is no way they can catch up on their own on a widespread level. Even if we keep current standards and try to help them, it won't be enough. So we actually have to lower the standards for everything to make sure "everyone is included."
The main thing the left wing cares about is hurt feelings. Nothing else really is important to them. That's why they don't care that Democrats try to shield the federal reserve from being audited. They care about letting gay people get married. They don't care about illegal immigrants driving down wage leverage for working Americans, they care about making illegal immigrants feel welcome and included.
It's all about the feelings. The emotions. The pretend that everyone is equal and the same. Nobody is left out, nobody is excluded. Obviously, if you're typically not the kind of person who meets a lot of standards in life, this will be of greater concern to you. Hence it is such a sensitive issue for the average self-loathing left wing emo. Freeks n geeks. They don't believe in things like "picking teams" because someone (them) will get picked last. Nothing can be determined by merit. It has to be equally rationed, selected, established based on diversity etc.
That's their deal. It's basically an acknowledgement that they're not the kind of people to be picked first at things. By women, in sports, for careers, etc. They're the guys that get picked last.
