This legalized discrimination accomplishes nothing but giving a sense of entitlement to minorities. And encouraging slackers to slack even more. Instead of working toward their own enrichment. At best it contributes to the dumbing down of America.
It looks to be short lived however due to the voters recently voting it down by an overwhelming majority in Michigan. Making Michigan the third state to ban affirmative action in the public arena based on race, gender, and ethnic status. It follows California and Washington.
I look forward and will consider it an honor to vote it down in my state.

Affirmative action is really just a load of bullshit.
"In every class, everyone will quickly find out who got in only because of Affirmative Action"
"A population has to meet certain conditions to be in Hardy-Weinburg Equilibrium, once these conditions are met, evolution is not occuring: A Large Population Size, Random Mating, No Net Genetic Mutations, No Net Migrations, and No Natural Selection. No Natural Selection means no Evolution, and a population will never progress"
Additionally, the rule implies that a minority would not be able to beat out a Caucasian in getting a job or admittance to a college under normal circumstances, ultimately insulting minorities further.
Friend: Affirmative Action is so racist.
Liberals typically justify AA with euphemisms such as "Leveling the playing field" or "You can't expect a man shackled for 400 years to just get up and run a race". They never speak in straightforward, concrete terms lest they reveal AA for what it is: Socio-economic welfare. It is sold to the public under the guise of "achieving equality" but, oddly, lacks any clause that measures when equality is achieved or when AA will no longer be necessary. AA is obviously not about achieving equality since no preference is given to whites, asians or women in the NBA or NFL, which are black male-dominated.
Strangely, although black groups fight passionately to preserve AA, blacks in general are offended when it is implied that AA contributed to their current job/position. They want to get AA, but they don't want anyone to know they got it.
