Affirmitive Action


Affirmative action policies do not benefit those who are supposed to be helped
in any way. Instead of Affirmative action decisions in their favor, minorities
and females are entrenched in their status because of the lowering of standards
and expectations imposed on them by businesses and educational institutions due
to the cries of racism and sexism in standards by advocates of AA. Ernest Van
Den Haag put it best, when he declares that. " Affirmative action has done as
much injury to black scholars as to black students." Isn\'t it time to return to
hiring people on individual merit, and return the millions spent on Affirmative
action. That money could be better spent on bringing minority and female
applicants up to standards. I believe the most qualified person should be
awarded the job, regardless of race, ethnicity, or disability.Affirmative action
