I Think Affirmative Action Is Racist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18 People

    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?

    Actions will always speak louder than words. People can say whatever they want, but if they're actions don't show it then what they say doesn't really mean a whole lot.
