Affirmative action is wrong and is just a fancy way of saying racism, discrimination, and worst of all, favoritism.The policy was enforced 50 years ago when times were rough and racism was at it's peak. To correct decades of discrimination towards African Americans and underprivileged races, affirmative action was used. It is obviously not needed anymore since it causes more problems than it solves. It was meant to eliminate discrimination but now, all it does is leads to it.

It is hard to determine the effects of discrimination, as it is entirely subjective upon one's notion. Discrimination will never cease, as long as there exists more than two humans on this planet.

Please elaborate as to how it creates more problems, rather than solving them.

As you have forfeited, likely due to a lack of concentration, I presume that neither of us have been deemed a veritable status of merit.

I think it is acceptable so long as the government doesn't take all of it.
