Should Federal, State, and local government be required to hire members of minority groups over more qualified white applicants in an effort to redress past inequalities in hiring practices? (basically should less qualified minorities be hired over qualified white applicants)

No, thats wrong. If I am more qualified than a minority, I should get the job.

Conservative propaganda. That is not why affirmative action exists, or the main reason anyway.

Doesn't change the fact that it is retarded and authoritarian.

No. It is only when the two applicants are effectively equal in terms of relevant experience and qualifications that affirmative action should come in to play.

I didn't define it, and those adjectives are fairly apt.
"Affirmative action refers to policies that take factors including "race, color, religion, gender , or national origin" into consideration in order to benefit an underrepresented group, "

People can't hire whomever they please? Sounds pretty authoritarian to me

MZ. It may be wrong...........But we are still living in a racist society where minorities are systematically being discriminated against daily. Therfore to counteract these injustices, programs like these must exist. Or else you would
not ever see any Blacks or Hispanics in the work place. This is true.
