a perfect manefestation of affirmative action is the disproportion of racial demographic within a blog community, esp. in this thread. the defi of this affirmative action has been whitewashed, since there are not enough voices from other ethnicities, which is why I need to join in this thread to balance out the concencus before yet another term is twisted. now is my action affirmative enough? you might be shaking your head in mistrust, since my action might belittle your shadowy superiority. and we all know that is not very conducive for your historically previliged status, init? speaking of why previliged, why I say proportion of ethnicities on this blog is biased toward whities. think about this you have more PCs and internet access than other, coz your dad gets a better job, and why your dad got better gig, coz he got better edu, coz his pa has got better job. previlige is not superiority! just another form of cheating. now I guess that on another level explain some kids from other backgounds might have lower GPA. coz their dad,...... and their granddad..... and it seems some of inferior kids who 'get into the backdoor' exhibits great capacity and momentum. re someone's remark about Hardy-Weinburg Equilibrium. do u know a concept called genetic drift, which indicates the disavantaged minority gene might go extinct, not because of that gene is not desirable, rather bacause of the inbreed within majority. clandesitination is detrimental for positive evolution of a population. nevertheless if your subliminal message is to bring minority into extinction,then affirmative action might be a menace to you. to sum up I throw another example, the hospital where my GF works recently recruit a whitie grad since majority of the staff are asian.

The term "affirmative action" comes from legislation like the Equal Opportunity Act which basically says that minorities (including the disabled and war vets) cannot be discriminated against for employment or enrollment in college.

That's it.
If you're complaining about getting rejected by an Ivy League school (and supposedly a black person, who you are quick to believe or imply is therefore under-qualified, got accepted instead), and not for the reason we mortals can't even dream of going to an Ivy League if we wanted to: the money; you're only proving why we need affirmative action.

If you believe the Ivy League is the epitome of higher education and not getting to attend such a school is equivalent to being denied the right to education, you're part of the problem.

If you have the time and resources to post these anti-minority rants on teh internetz, your argument holds little weight just by that fact.

White people: black people are not your problem.

(ps this is coming from a white guy who didn't even finish the writing portion of the SAT and received a substantial scholarship from his university after getting accepted there)

affirmative action (U.S.), action taken to affirm an established policy; spec. positive action by employers to ensure that minority groups are not discriminated against during recruitment or employment - taken from oxford english dictionary
Affirmative Action is good. White ppl claims that it somehow makes life harder for them is totally wrong and is bull shit.

all the statistics prove that the affect it has on white ppl not gettin jobs, college is not significant at all. very small.

it only gets attention because of the reason that it is rare and when it happens white ppl go up in arms n shit.

o yea im asian and yes affirmative action doesnt really do much for us either and yet i dont care.

affirmative action is one of the few things minorties have going for them to counter the effects of institutionalized discrimination. It is not racist, beyond popular white belief. the people that think it is racist are those that think "white males" are the most discriminated against(which is obviously bullshet since they are the most higher up in society). Have the skin color "white" does more for a person than any trivial thing like affirmative action.

minorities already have a burden just because they might have different color skin. many white people(not all) just cannot stand the thought of other groups having a slight advantage(which it really isnt since so few minorities compared to others actually get to get into those institutions that it counters the belief that a black person is taking a job etc from a white person because of the fact that the workplace, college is probably already 70%+ white)
did u know that after the civil rights acts of the 60s, it only took 14 years, 14 freaking years for a white person to bring up a case of reverse discrimination. think about it Black people have had practically no rights for like 300 yrs in the country and 250 of them they were slaves, and when they actually get some "rights" it only takes white people not even 20 years to start protesting about it.

Affirmative Action may take a couple of hundred white, asian people out of jobs or schools but compared to the millions of minorities that do not even get the chance to be in the position of getting affirmative action, those poor poor white asian people losing to an under represented minority really dont deserve pity.

im asian and yea it sucks that it goes against me but hey its cuz asians are perceived as overachieving and colleges probably think they have too much asians so thats a reason why it would affect us. but colleges can never have too many white people thats for sure.

ps. white people do not worry you are still in power, the world is not out to get you, your skin color does much much more than anything like affirmative action can do.

A blatantly unconstitutional race based handicap quota system. Intended to atone for supposed past indiscretions. Which are "thought" to account for minority's lower test scores, A 70% unwed child birth rate, And a 7 to 1 imprisonment rate (that can be documented) among blacks.

This legalized discrimination accomplishes nothing but giving a sense of entitlement to minorities. And encouraging slackers to slack even more. Instead of working toward their own enrichment. At best it contributes to the dumbing down of America.

It looks to be short lived however due to the voters recently voting it down by an overwhelming majority in Michigan. Making Michigan the third state to ban affirmative action in the public arena based on race, gender, and ethnic status. It follows California and Washington.

I look forward and will consider it an honor to vote it down in my state.
