Selectively enforce *what* civil rights legislation? There is no federal law requiring affirmative action. It is not mandated by the Civil Rights Act.

Sounds like it to me.
Senators, Congressmen and SCOTUS get their own special license plates. The cops would simply decide that people of such distinction don't need to be investigated on such tips.
On the contrary, such point systems are perfectly acceptible to the Supreme Court. The question isn't whether this type of affirmative action is unconstitutional--it isn't. The question is whether it is constitutional for the state to ban the colleges from using it anyways--and it is.
AA is not racist per se, but rather a type of politically sanctioned spoils system.
The two are not mutually exclusive. It is, in fact, a politically sanction spoils system that is racist.
In real life, there is no such thing as a door that won't ever open,
But as far as the game is concerned, a door that won't ever open is just a door that won't ever open *for you*, and the real world is full of those.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS
No, it was supposed to be worse. "Our next entering class will be 10% black. We will admit blacks until we get our 10%, no matter how bad they are." That went away when the Supremes ruled that you can't do *that* kind of affirmative action at all.
You can buy pure IPA in gallon steel cans (or even five gallon cans!) at most hardware stores.

The very first line from your link:
"Requiring little or no physical exertion or agility mind sports are often not considered true sports."
The difference is that a sport is a physical contest. There has to be some aspect of physical performance in the contest.
I consider games like golf and chess skills rather than sports. To me, sports rely more on athletic factors like speed and strength.
And coordination. Golf doesn't require much of the first two (although it does take some upper body strength to hit those long drives) but requires the third in spades. Golf is a sport.
It's a blurry line I have drawn for myself but, right or wrong
I think the line is fairly clear. Is there a physical component or is it purely mental? An easy to use, sensible guideline. Golf is a sport. Chess is not.
Which is why chess is a game, not a sport. Not running it down--games are probably my favorite thing in this world. But it's not a sport.
If I want to play baseball, I can go to a free municipal baseball field. All I have to provide is my own bat and a ball.
If you don't bring a glove, your hand is going to get pretty sore...
It's all fun and games until libc needs an update.
Really? libc updated on my Debian system about a month and half back, and it went smooth as silk. Just sat back and let aptitude handle it all and then rebooted. I didn't have to do anything at all.
No. The heirs are not responsible for the debts of the estate. The debts are paid by the executor out of the assets of the estate.
I think I see what's happening now. It's been sensationalized. What's happened is that the estate was settle and the heirs were paid. What the IRS is going after is not the daughter's assets per se but the inherited assets paid to her improperly out of the estate because the estate didn't settle its debts with the IRS.
