"Racially-Based Affirmative Action in College Admissions Should be Abolished"

Censorship?

No free thought or opposing point of view allowed under the rules of political correctness?

Or it is generally accepted by the education community that minorities are to stupid to succeed on their own merits?

What?
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Well, we need more knowledge than the resolution. DDO has permitted far far FAR more provocative debates to continue undisturbed, obviously there's something you're not telling us.

I actually saw that debate when it was up--it was very civil and tame.

I'm pretty sure it was taken by an account of NoNo (twice) when the instigator created two debates on the same topic. The only remaining debate left by the instigator is with a member whose account is closed.

MiG is right. And if you are pro AA and would like to debate this topic, please just PM the instigator. He seems like a new guy who just came to DDO for serious debates and got spammed horribly every time he tried to instigate.

I'm against it. It's insulting to minorities now. It had it's purpose in the beginning and now needs to be abolished. Now we need affirmative action for teaches with conservative beliefs in the education system. More than 90% of all teachers and professors are of liberal ideology. This needs to be balanced out so the youth can be exposed to other forms of ideas and principals other than politically correct left wlng socialist ideas.

Were you serious about that or are you just making fun of affirmative action proponents?
