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)

An outdated tool meant to uplift the lower dredges of the urban and working class people of the USA, i.e minorities. Particularly of the African American persuasion. Affirmative Action was fomented out of the need to reemburse African Americans for 400 years of slavery, and another 200 years of apartheid policies by politikos and whites in general in America. Affirmative Action was an avant garde way of saying "sorry for killing 50 million of you and enslaving the rest, here I shower my kindness upon you by letting you work at this factory for miminum wage".
Affirmative Action was created as a medium for helping urban class African Americans but has come to be used more frequently by members of other minority groups, particularly Indians and Latinos. A shocking and often underestimated effect of Affirmative Action is the fact that white women benefit from it far more than African Americans and minorities in general.

Detractors of Affirmative Action routinely sidestep the issue of white women being the beneficiaries of it while blaming African Americans for all of society's ills. See Euro trash.
Affirmative Action is decrepit, outdated and void of anything remotely progressive. If the government and Americans in general were truly interested in formulating proper ways of managing the African American solution, and reembursement for years of apartheid policies, then they would fund schools in African American areas and supply them with capable teachers and staff, nothing special - just fund them the same way you fund suburban schools. That would be a great start and would guarantee immediate change.
white guy: "those bloodsucking hiphop listening bling blinging blingers are stealing all our labour and manufacturing jobs"

non white guy: "uhm .. buddy, the bimbo outside the boss' office with the miniskirt and the grade eight education is the only here benefitting from Affirmative Action"

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.
