  1. The notion that less qualified people are getting into schools and jobs they are unqualufied for is bigoted. Affimative Action wouldn't be neccessary if access was based on qualifications alone and not the personal preferences of people entrusted to give oppurtunities fairly.

  2. As a black female with a MENSA-level IQ, Affirmative Action simply makes no difference to me. I inherited my IQ from my white father, but my ghetto-trash black mother raised me. Since I was raised in socioeconomic conditions which were beneath my intellect, I would have had to earn far more than a white woman, to achieve a reasonable standard of living. This is especially true since I look black, so I will never have the benefit of middle-class males, helping and supporting me voluntarily. To be honest, this lifestyle is simply too hard and stressful to cope with, so I ended up with nothing.

    Sufferings such as mine don't "just happen", as a relic of America's historical racism. Scientists sat down and PREDICTED these patterns of behavior, and governments used violence to crystalize them, and make the most of them, to DELIBERATELY reinforce racial oppression. For instance, a couple of decades ago, a white male and a black one got together, and raped and murdered a pretty biracial teenaged girl. I believe her mother was also black.

    The reality is, once you establish a system of racial oppression, things will never go right afterwards. So Affirmative Action is analogous to the old-fashioned girdle: it doesn't solve the problem; it just shifts it around, to make it less visible.

  3. i am certain that eventually the supreme court will rule affirmative action unconstiutional because it is by definition discrimination based on race which is against the fourteenth amendment and many civil rights acts.

  4. THERE NEED TO BE SEPERATE GOVT FUNDED REHABILITATION SCHEMES TO BRING MARGINALIZED PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR MISERY NOT AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION..Like eg free mentoring, career councelling, drug support, corrections services for criminals should prepare them to take on the world once released, domestic violence support disability & orphan support groups. in addition to free 1 room housing & free food & basic free medical & 30% quotas in public administration

  5. Past description doesn’t justify present discrimination, particularly, as in the case of Asian Americans, when the same group was subject to discrimination in both instances.

  6. I don't really agree with affirmative action. Maybe it should be based on socioeconomic standards instead since poorer kids have worse chances at higher education. Or instead of having quotas, there can be incentives for companies or schools to not have discrimination.

  7. Plot twist …found out it wasn't affirmative action …it was rich people paying their kids way and taking spaces from worthy people of ANY race, or financial status

  8. So the guy was mad because he didn't make the cut of 53 slots so he got mad about tbe 16 slots set aside for minority….soooo non minority has 53 chances and minority people only havr 16….my god people are greedy…

  9. I'm sorry but I want my doctor or lawyer to be the Individual who is most qualified, regardless of race. The remedy to previous racism is not more state funded racism

  10. Asians have to score 450 points higher than blks.whites have to score 250 higher. Who will be better for America smart workers or lower. I. Q workers. And what does it tell the blk kids. It says your stuped but we're going to take care of you. Make the score equal then blk kids will work harder and have self pride.
