I Think Affirmative Action Is Racist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18 People

    I Disagree

    what alternatives are there, then, to balance things out? i think it's necessary. racists are not inclined to be inclusive, and sometimes you just have to force the system to accommodate other people.

    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?
