Also about affirmative action+4Affirmative action in college acceptance should be based on socioeconomic status, amirite?
Also about affirmative action+91Affirmative action is a policy that should have never been put in place. It'll backfire when it's eventually removed because employers will be under the impression that they no longer have to hire minorities, amirite?
Also by alilbitdramatic-3Yay for dramatically increased healthcare costs due to Obamacare, amirite?
Also about color, skin, and affirmative action+141Affirmative action could in some cases do more harm than good. If someone is accepted to a good college because of their skin color, and they are academically less than qualified to attend, they probably won't do as well, and won't be able to keep up with the workload, amirite?
Also about affirmative action+281Affirmative action is just reverse discrimination. It not only assumes that minorities need more help than other races in acquiring jobs, college admissions, etc., but it unfairly discriminates against the majority. If you succeed, it should be because you earned it, not because of your race. amirite?
Also about affirmative action+257Screw affirmative action, real progress would be seeing a movie where there was a biracial couple that wasn't the focal point or something to be laughed at, amirite?
Also about affirmative action+338A black student with a GPA of 3.5 from a family of 5 that makes 35,000 a year shouldn't have more scholarship opportunities than a white student with a GPA of 3.5 from a family of 5 that makes 35,000 a year in the same city applying to the same college. Opportunities should be based off skill and disadvantage only, not race. Affirmative action only reinforces the idea that minorities are less capable, and it is an insult, amirite?
