Look, I have a busy schedule, so I'm going to make this argument short.

Between giving minorities bonus points on SATs and required percentage of minorities in a company, with the same thing occurring for women, affirmative action somehow manages to be racist to all races. Racist/sexist to minorities and women because it is based on the thinking that they aren't smart enough, so they need help; also racist/sexist to men and majorities and by giving them a disadvantage in the market for jobs and in the SATs.

Pro

Affirmative action is used to eliminate job discrimination. In the past, only white males were allowed to have jobs. Also, you provided no sources for your argument.
