Affirmative Action refers to the equal opportunity employment measures that Federal contractors and subcontractors are legally required to adopt. It's a blessing to Liberals and a curse to Conservatives. As a minority myself, I don't want to obtain employment because I'm a minority; I want to obtain employment because I have the credentials. Some people have even reported that others frown upon them in the university or in the work place because others claim they were only granted enrollment or employment because of their minority status. Affirmative Action is not needed to improve the social and economic status of minorities in the United States. The situation of minorities in the United States will only be strained if people come to believe that minorities are dependent on this legislation. In order for minorities to truly advance, they must not rely on Affirmative Action to grant them access to employment, rather, they must satisfy both the work ethic and credentials to prove they are worthy of the job.
"In regards to Affirmative Action, I don't want the employers to hire me because I'm a minority; I want the employers to hire me because I have the credentials."
