Scalia: Affirmative Action Sends Blacks to Schools Too Advanced for Them submitted by cpoakes to news

jxfaith 1 points 114 points (+115|-1) ago

Let it be said, for the record, that the removal of affirmative action isn't about denying opportunities to people of color. It's about making sure that everyone, regardless of race, is able to reap the fruits of their labor.

The information presented here is great and all, but the resolution is so small that it obscures every single axis, stripping every plot of a sense of scale.

For instance, I actually looked up the labor participation chart shown here in the past and I believe the y-axis goes from 63% to 65%. While that 2% is a substantial number of people, when plotted in such zoom it really gives a false sense of crisis.

If you're going to use data to make a point, don't use it like this.

What the hell is this? When did I wake up in 1984? The FBI just demands that a private corporation hand over all of the details of its operating system, which I'm sure has millions of dollars of engineering invested into it, as well as their signing key? Because terrorism, of course. Convenient.

I can't decide if the world is going crazy at an alarming rate or if I'm only just seeing it for what it is. Gah.

Despite 1 In 5 Gay Men Having HIV, FDA Overturns 30-Yr Ban On Blood Donations submitted by zenmastery to politics

jxfaith 10 points -8 points (+2|-10) ago

Sometimes a person can contract HIV and it doesn't show up on blood tests for several months because they haven't produced any antibodies.

This is equally problematic for both gay populations and straight ones. As such, if there is some shortfall in precaution as would apply to one population, it should be remedied for both.

Despite 1 In 5 Gay Men Having HIV, FDA Overturns 30-Yr Ban On Blood Donations submitted by zenmastery to politics

The prevalence of the disease isn't the issue here; if no precaution is being taken that would mitigate the risk of infected blood being accepted due to the dwell time between infection and manifestation of the antibodies within the blood stream, then 1/780 or 1/5 makes no difference-- the infected blood would go undetected. The lack of detection is the problem, and there should be a precaution in place for both populations.

Prosecutor Wants to Charge 14-Year-Old Girl with Sexual Exploitation for Taking PG-13 Pictures of Herself submitted by daskapitalist to news

To be fair, it should probably be illegal to photograph onesself pornographically while underage if only because it could be used as a loophole by predators. Think of a child sex grooming ring forcing their victims to take nude selfies in order to bypass the law.

In such a case, being able to hold the victim guilty for the crime of taking that selfie can be used to break up the ring. Used in such a way, the victim would accept a plea bargain and receive no sentence on grounds that they provide testimony and information to destroy the real target.

Whether that was the original spirit of the law when established or not is a separate issue, and in either case the prosecutor here isn't using it to that effect.
