To be completely honest with you, I am 100% against Affirmative Action, I believe that it does more to hurt then it does to help. I’m only going to give you my short reasoning hear, and a simple three reasons are as follows;
If a minority gains a job or acceptance into a College/University because of extra points, or just because they are a member of a minority group, what this is telling them is that they are inferior to no-minorities. At one point in history this was fact, but not in 2013. We need to do away with Affirmative Action because people should be judged by who and what they are not because of the color of their skin, there sexual preference, or because they were born a man, or woman.
Affirmative Action does real damage, Affirmative Action is State Sponsored Discrimination. With the main victim being the Straight White Male, as this is the one population that fails to fall under the heading for preference in hiring, or extra points on State Employment Tests. Also what makes this the saddest class is that how the laws are written it is that it is either close to impossible, or impossible for a Straight White Male to be Discriminated against. If you don’t believe me look it up.
We have laws that make it a Criminal Offence to Discriminate, yes there are only a few groups that are protected but if we extended the groups that can and are discriminated against, and started enforcing the laws, we would do away with Affirmative Action, because the cold hard fact is that every group of people have biases against others group, and that’s what it is. Group think, blue eyes against brown eyes, jocks vs. brains, and so force, as long as we are individuals we will gravitate to groups of people who we share similarities with.
