Don't you think being dyslexic is different than being black or hispanic? Don't you think implying that they are the same or very similar is extremely insulting? Dyslexia, especially in the context of a WRITTEN exam, makes a much easier case for some type of "affirmative action.According to what has been reported about the earlier lawsuit, he did not ask for "affirmative action." He had passed the test notwithstanding his dyslexia, but alleged that he was turned down because he mentioned at his interview that he had dyslexia. The distinction is important, because the vast majority of Americans -- pretty much everyone except libertarians -- supports laws against discrimination. But they don't support preferences.
