Six thousand African Americans who failed a test to join the Chicago police force are suing because of alleged racial discrimination. The discrimination, if I’m not mistaken, is that they were forced to pass the same test as everyone else. Thus, the meaning of discrimination has been turned on its head.

The people they should be suing are those who ran their schools into the ground, the parents who didn’t teach them life or academic skills, and themselves for not studying the body of human knowledge that is freely out there for anyone who wants it.
