I went for a job. I am white & the other guy was black. We both got the same score; we both did equally well. He gets the job instead of me because he's black and I'm white. That is racism. AA is racist, sexist, and anti-equality. It outlived its usefulness for equality.
It's definitely racist to consider a person's skin color when hiring them.
It discriminates against skilled whites.
Asian Americans, Whites, Arabs, and Jews are excluded from affirmative action even if they have same skills as their black, hispanic, or Native American counterparts.
I'm a mixed race female and I believe affirmative action is racist against both minorities and the majority. It is racist against minorities as it builds a mentality that they need help getting in to universities and jobs. It is racist against the majority as they would be denied positions due to their race.
Employers should be able to hire who ever they want no matter what race the person is.
I'm a white male and I don't have any problem with Affirmative Action. I believe that society has nothing to lose, and everything to gain from promoting the integration of historically marginalized groups.
Apparently people don't get the overall purpose of Affirmative Action, because the very reason it even exists it because of racism, people should educate themselves first.
