Affirmative Action


Affirmative Action
The term affirmative action is applied to the use of racial, ethnic, or gendr prefrences set apart a variety of social benefits.
The groups receiving such benifits, such as blacks, indians, and women are assumed to havee been victims of descrimination in the past.
Thus, a program most definatly benifiting white males as a group would not be an example of affirmative action for most people.
This would be as unconstitutional as discrimination against non-whites or women.
I feel that the need for affirmative action is varied form case tto case because sometimes people of diffrent races are hired to meet a
quota required by state or federal law. I feel that affirmative action is a quoata system because it is forcing you to hire people possibly
not qualified just because of their race.
I feel the only way to slove this problem is to force people to hire for quality not quanity. A more qualified applicant should not be turned
down for race or gender.
