    And why should anyone get preference into school admissions? How about you work hard, get good grades and EARN it.

    Just because you are black, hispanic (note that Asians are never involved in these things), daddy went to school there, parents donated a building……how about you earn it.

    Nah! That is just plain stupid talk.

    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/

    Try reading snopes and get the truth rather than posting nonsense that you get in email.

    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
