Do you believe there is such a thing as positive discrimination?

  • I believe there is such a thing as positive discrimination.

    I think it is best for a company to hire the best candidates for a job no matter what their race or gender. I feel that sometimes, if a company did not employ minorities in a percentage equal to or greater than the percentage in the area, they are called racist or discriminatory. There may not be enough qualified applicants, however.

  • Yes, there is such a thing as positive discrimination.

    I definitely believe that there is such a thing as positive discrimination. While it is never good to discriminate against somebody who are not breaking any laws, there are instances where discriminating can be good. Discriminating against people who are criminals can keep a community safe from such type of crimes.

  • No, not at all

    The two words positive and discrimination can not be put together because they have completely different meanings. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • No there is no such thing as positive discrimination

    There is no such thing as positive discrimination because the word discrimination in and of itself is negative. Discrimination means that you prevent someone from doing something because of a personal prejudice.There can be nothing positive about exhibiting prejudices or bias. Positive discrimination cannot exist because the two words contradict one another

  • No, Not Really

    I do not believe there is such a thing as positive discrimination. I believe some people can benefit via discrimination and of course that may seem positive to them, from their perspective, but it doesn't make discrimination okay. Breaking the barriers on discrimination means knowing that things like positive discrimination don't exist.

  • No, not really.

    No, I think positive discrimination is an oxymoron. People sometimes call affirmative action positive discrimination, but it's not trying to or seeking to discriminate, so I don't think it applies. I think each person is different and should be treated according to how they are as a person and not by groups.
