    Jebus. Leave CG alone.
    It's good natured. Though we have been hard on her lately, with this and the Steve Kline thread. Maybe we should ease up a little and direct our hostility to somebody else.

    Continuing to try and treat minorities as second-class citizens, eh Kah.

    Just keep your foot on the throat.



    Who's the true bigot.
    I bet you have no idea what happened in 1964, what the Civil Rights Act entailed, and the results thereof, do you?

    Kah,
    The statement may be true, I don't have the numbers of the number of minorities as professionals before 1964 and after, but the wording of the phrase is what was troubling. The first reaction that the statement elicits is that they are ONLY there because of the Civil Rights Act and not because of their credentials.
    The point, Fishbone, is that there were plenty of blacks and minorities that were qualified before 1964, too. They just weren't in those white-collar fields because people didn't want to hire Negroes. It was the Civil Rights Act that opened doors for them.

    The thing that befuddles me is, how many people saw and reviewed the script and didn't say a word? Surely the script writer, producer, and anchor all went over the script together and none saw anything wrong in that statement? Shocking.
    I am still waiting to hear why a comment crediting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for the advancement of minorities in the workplace is so stupid and outrageous to begin with.

    Maybe it was the anchor breaking away from the script to put in her own personal opinion... "ad lib" as it were.

    My sister works for Channel 4 and she says that Robin Smith is a huge ad libber... she just uses the script some times as a guide, and interjects stuff all the time. That makes it hell on my sister, who is the teleprompter operator!
