I Think Affirmative Action Is Racist

    I Disagree

    Affirmative Action.

    I know I will somehow end up getting crap for this..Anyhow..I do think Affirmative Action is racist.What it's saying is that people of minority groups are all underprivileged and need to be handed advantages.How is that not racist?

    Words are powerful, they separate us from animalkind, connecting minds. If you actions speak louder, how pure must they be?
