    Affirmative action was never intended to be permanent. It was a fix to help adjust for the bias that previously existed. If left in effect it creates a new bias. I worked in a large company through those years and struggled with unqualified people in the name of affirmative action. People should be accepted or hired based upon merit and performance. Anything else is unfair to somebody.

    We’ll know that affirmative action is no longer needed when we stop getting stories like this: http://www.thewire.com/culture/2014/04/professors-are-less-likely-to-mentor-female-and-minority-students-especially-in-business-school/361047/

    Why do people keep spreading these ridiculous stories about Obama? A few minutes on the web and you can find hundreds and hundreds of these things. There must be something about him that just drives some people crazy. I guess it’s because he’s a socialist. (joke)

    Actually, putting someone in a job that they aren’t qualified for is unfair to them as much as to the people who have to take up the slack. It has to be a serious blow to the ego to have to go look stupid for 8 hours every day of your life. I think it would be normal in that position, to goof off, to try to look capable of doing the job, but disrespectful of the position. I would be less ashamed of being a jerk, than I would be ashamed of being unable to do my job.

    It’s way past time to quit considering race and switch the affirmative actions over to income levels. Who needs the help, a smart kid whose family is a poverty level, or the Obama kids?

    Affirmative Action was supposed to fight stereotypes that e.g. all Blacks/Women are (insert stereotype justifying discrimination against the group as a whole) that essentially came from uneducated right-wing Archie Bunker types.

    Today AA still exists because of similar stereotypes that All Whites/Males are “Privleged” “Advantaged” that comes from high educated members of the left-wing.

    In “progressive” Canada, section 15(2) of its charter of human rights, allows such racial and gender discrimination because of such stereotypes, and was brought in by Pierre Trudeau, a highly educated liberal who probably was indocrinated in university in the 1940’s

    Affirmative Action has become a total out of date joke where they are still giving hiring preference to Women in jobs that have become female dominated such as Administrative Assistants.

    Affirmative Action is a reflection of modern social engineering hypocrisy, where you will never see AA programs for e.g. Men in female dominated jobs such as elementary school teachers even though there is still proven discrimination in preferring women in such jobs today – maybe because of the stereotype that All Males are “privileged”, totally disregarding other factors like job catagory

    If you really want to stop people hiring their own kind, then realise that most human resource personal are from the educated left and I have seen many a position where a university degree is always required even if it does not relate to the job requirements e.g. An Arts degree will allow you to apply for a business adminstration job, but a college or experience in business administration, will not, because such lefists want to hire their own educational kind.

    - In the Canadian public service, where most HR personal are from the English/French bilingual left, bilingualism is required, not to serve people who need it, but because such people only want to work with their own linguistic kind, and the same left has always given praise to those who speak more than one language not bothering to question what has been stated as to quote Winston Churchill, “better to speak common sense in one language, than nonsense in many”

    Affirmative Action has become a supposively female and non-white vote getter (we have official bilingualism – an AA French vote getter in Canada) that makes certain elitist White/Male Liberals feel superior to others in thinking and patting themselves on the back that they are the only non racist and non sexist Whites/Males out there

    Affirmative Action has become a tool to show how shallow and cowardly Conservative politicians have become, that in order to obtain power, they have abandoned their social principles and never mention about abolishing it for fear of confrontation from such advocates who always accuse them of being racist and sexists – cowardice in face of the bigot card being played

    I mostly agree with you. I would, however raise the opinion that …. Anything is unfair to someone.
