Question of the Day: Affirmative Action

This was a question originally posted on Lefty’s blog.

The question is:

Does Affirmative Action still have a place in American society?

Personally, I don’t think so. I think it is a policy whose time has passed.

I feel that a person should be able to gain employment or get a college acceptance/scholarship based on their merits as a person, not get special privileges because that person is of a minority group.

Giving those people an unfair advantage, especially in employment situations, detracts from hiring a person that may be a little more qualified for the position just for the sake of hitting a “quota.”
