AFFIRMATIVE ACTION- KILLING HOPES, DREAMS, AND INDIANS SINCE PRESIDENT KENNEDY
"Did he make the team over a more qualified white player?"
"Uh...uh... not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case."
White guy has a MBA from Princeton.
Black guy has a MBA from Pat Boone Community College.
High paying company hires black guy over white guy because the office has too many white folks.
Maybe if the white guy's grandpa and friends weren't so racist, he would of gotten the job. Say thank you grandpa.
Jamie Foxx makes bad movies in the 90s, but becomes a AA grade actor in the '00s and gets an Oscar for Ray = "AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!"
...I don't get it.
Affirmative Action was created as a medium for helping urban class African Americans but has come to be used more frequently by members of other minority groups, particularly Indians and Latinos. A shocking and often underestimated effect of Affirmative Action is the fact that white women benefit from it far more than African Americans and minorities in general.
Detractors of Affirmative Action routinely sidestep the issue of white women being the beneficiaries of it while blaming African Americans for all of society's ills. See Euro trash.
Affirmative Action is decrepit, outdated and void of anything remotely progressive. If the government and Americans in general were truly interested in formulating proper ways of managing the African American solution, and reembursement for years of apartheid policies, then they would fund schools in African American areas and supply them with capable teachers and staff, nothing special - just fund them the same way you fund suburban schools. That would be a great start and would guarantee immediate change.
non white guy: "uhm .. buddy, the bimbo outside the boss' office with the miniskirt and the grade eight education is the only here benefitting from Affirmative Action"
