Affirmative action is simply legalized discrimination!!!

Giving ANY preferential treatment to ANY group is in fact by definition discrimination!

Being "EQUAL" takes place only at birth. Affirmative Action and other means to promote one over another are obsolete' Be "Color Blind" and allow merit and self achievement to be the law of the land.

Affimative action rules no longer have any constructive place in this democratic society. Racial equality is not about denying people opportunities based on their race, that would be the opposite of racial equality. And yet for decades and currently we do deny people jobs, promotions, education and opportunity based on their race. Affirmative action is racial inequality and is not necessary. The dialogue about affirmative action seems always about blacks, but young black people can compete with anyone today. Access to a degree and employment is more than equal now and that means the scale has tipped and we should no longer be interested in denying equality to people based on race. AA was designed to break down racism, to maintain it now promotes racism. Time to move on.

Civil Rights leaders want equal RESULTS, not equal OPPORTUNITIES.

The ONLY way to accomplish that is to REDISTRIBUTE the wealth by force.
