Preferential Treatment And The Demands Of Fair Competition, Edward R. Abplanalp Nov 2005

Preferential Treatment And The Demands Of Fair Competition, Edward R. Abplanalp

10th Annual National Conference (2005): Different Perspectives on Majority Rules

The issue of the fairness of many current affirmative action policies stands in a necessary juxtaposition with the relationship citizens have with each other in the U.S. free enterprise system. Although it is the case that many of today's affirmative action programs that involve preferential treatment are flawed and morally unjustified as they stand, it is not the case that no strong affirmative action policy is morally justified. By appealing to historical facts and basic intuitions about fair competition, I present a cogent counterfactual argument that suggests that, due to the competitive nature of our present society, some ...

The Four Suns Of Healing, Roberto Dansie Nov 2005

The Four Suns Of Healing, Roberto Dansie

10th Annual National Conference (2005): Different Perspectives on Majority Rules

We have calendars in the American continent that go back thousands of years. Researchers today confirm that these calendars not only measure the Macro-cosmos: They are also a sophisticated charting of the inner-world, particularly the dynamics between the body, the emotions, and the multiple elements that constitute our Self. These views are represented in calendars, ancient codices, and pre-Hispanic ceremonial centers. They are also alive in popular views, and traditional healing practices known today as “Curanderismo.” One of these perspectives is the use of the four suns. This presentation will explore this perspective.

The Demise Of African American Participation In Baseball: A Cultural Backlash From The Negro Leagues, David C. Ogden

Sport As A Bridge Across The Racial Divide, Richard E. Lapchick Ph.D.

10th Annual National Conference (2005): Different Perspectives on Majority Rules
