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?

    Newsflash. If you begin a sentence with "I'm not racist, but..." then whatever you say after that is most probably racist.
