Bsi 2,036.13 +5.17 +.4%

The first full week of April ends with five consecutive days of gains for the Index.


Black Gays in Iowa (BGI) 1.17 +1.17 NA

Yeah, that's right, both of you.  Congratulations.  Let's hope the other states follow suit.

Wanda's right, you know.


Affirmative Action (AAAA) 29.26 -7.62 -20.66%

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon be hearing a reverse discrimination case brought by Connecticut firefighters.  In the case the city of New Haven threw out a firefighters' liutenents exam after no blacks passed the test.

Thirty-two percent of New Haven firefighters are black.  So you know brothers can do the job.

The lesson should have been, "study harder next time, brothers".  Instead a conservative leaning court could deal another blow to a policy that promotes inclusion into otherwise closed areas of opportunity.  Affirmative Action works.  Analysts here strongly believe that.  What doesn't is quota systems (there's a difference).
