What is affirmative action first off? The term is used to describe policies aimed at a historically socio-politically non-dominant group (typically, minority men or women of all racial groups) intended to promote its access to education or employment. Screw that it is absurd to say that anyone can still be feeling effects of something that happened over 50yrs. Or more ago. I am considered a minority but allowing affirmative action is just an excuse for someone saying, “Hey I don’t want to work as hard as the other person” or “I just want the easy way.”
To believe that this is politically just or correct is absurd. Think about it when applying to college a person gets a few extra points just for being a certain race, uh, uh, nope, not me. I don’t need anyone’s help and neither does anyone else. If you work hard enough and want it badly enough and are willing to do what is necessary to get it then you have no excuses and no need for affirmative action. The fact that someone would even give that to me is an insult, you might as well just say that I am lesser than that person and therefore need an extra hand.
How can you gain points like that just being a certain race, well what then a white good worker gets passed up for the black who did jack in school, somehow that just doesn’t add up in my head right. Shouldn’t people be judged solely on the basis of their works and academic achievements? Bottom line don’t give the lazy a reason to be lazy, look at the people that are pro affirmative action, yeah exactly the lazy who just want an easy way into what others work hard for. Do what you got to do and stop looking for an easy way out of you being an IDIOT!!!!
