Affirmative Action isn't about justice or leveling the score. If they really wanted that, they would hold their hands out to the descendants of the African tribes who enslaved their ancestors and sold them to Europeans. Besides, Whites were not the first or only people to practice slavery, we were however the first to abolish it even to the point of spilling the blood of our own kind to see it end. Only a small minority of whites ever owned slaves anyway. One also has to wonder how much reparation Arabs in the Middle East give to their historically enslaved Africans.
Non-whites should thank their lucky stars they're allowed the privilege to live in our luxurious societies enjoying our many inventions and that we have given billions in charity to third world countries. As if that isn't enough, they revel in the moral legitimacy our own media and universities give to them. No, Affirmative Action is instead about opportunism; taking advantage of an emotionally abused and morally disarmed race of people- the only ones in this world who will put up with it.
|Ok, so today in English, a couple kids debated on some issues, and an interesting one came up. Affirmative Action. For those who don't know what it is, it's where minorities have a better chance at getting into schools and good jobs, but some deem it as "unfair"|
Nice control word; referring to people by how many of them there are.
|As a black man well teenager I'm biased towards it a little bit because I have an advantage, and the fact that minorities in America has been through some sh*t, but I can see how some could call it unfair, but my question is, Is it really?|
Non-whites fare a hell of a lot better in white countries than in their own. Answer me this honestly: do you regret the Transatlantic slave trade bearing in mind it's the only reason you're not currently dying of famine?
|It shouldn't be based on the color of people's skin|
It's not based on skin colour. It's based on race. Spend a couple of weeks under the sun and see if you qualify.
|because to assume a black person is ALWAYS at a disadvantage is what I consider racist.|
I don't know. Define racist anyway. Perhaps the proponents of AA know, deep down, that genetics plays a significant role in how well one does.
|Yes, because white people already have an (arguably much greater) unfair advantage.|
Yes, in the societies they have built. I don't know how to break this to you but whites kinda created Western civilization.
|Yes it is unfair, yet it's also unfair that an employer would choose a John Smith over a Tyrone Williams.|
Freedom of Association- without it America is not the land of the free but a bureaucratic Marxist state. There is also job performance, intelligence and criminal tendencies to consider.
|I believe affirmative action quotas can work for unskilled labour jobs|
...while the more disadvantaged whites get screwed over further. Slavery was totally their fault after all.
