They also ban photography at events as it may intimidate delegates from overseas, so our photo is a suggestion of what the delegates might look like.

Oh.... My.... Goodness....

That photo is worth a 1000 words. Talk about a lack of self respect and dignity.

indeed, one would think that "Respect Yourself" would be rule number1 !

sloven is the word you're looking for by the way...

Yes, evidence was offered to the contrary in both examples, would you like it again?

Cable channels are evidence of special treatment: Movie channels, sports channels, shopping channels, educational channels, etc. There are specialty channels in almost all of those areas. The argument you're parroting claims that Black Entertainment Television proves that blacks are given "special treatment" or "special rights" ... and I assume (because no actual citation was made to any real channels) that LOGO TV proves the same thing for "the gays."

If so, then as repeated, the Golf Channel proves that golfers are being given special rights, the BBC in America proves that Brits are given special rights, the Cartoon Network proves that cartoons are ... get the picture? It's an absolutely absurd claim.

Grants and scholarships are proof of special treatment: If so, then scholarships based on financial need are giving "special rights' to the poor, and grants based on Grade Point Average are favoring good students, or requirements for graduate scholarships based on having an undergraduate degree unfairly discriminates against those who didn't graduate.

How much ad absurdum is needed?

Again, channels for various activities are not indicative of special treatment for a group. They are not based on race or religion. Pretending that they are is flat out foolish. A channel based on RACE, however, which is considered a protected class, is NOT the same. Race is a protected class. Sports and shopping preferences are not protected classes. If you can't grasp this, you need to bow out of the debate already.

Scholarships based on race are most certainly discriminatory.

Unless you want to grant protected status to any and all groups, based on activities, income, interests, and whatever, instead of having those based on race or religion, give up.
