I personally believe that everyone should have the same opportunity to get any job. I also believe that the person most qualified for a job should get it; not because of the color of his or her skin.

I completely agree, it should be based off of qualifications and skills. Not based off of things like gender, race, religion, etc.

I mean it's wrong, but so was slavery. Whites owned everything when blacks where freed and of course they passed it down to there kids, so affirmative action is a wrong that attempts to right a wrong.
