This should be required viewing at universities and workplaces that discriminate based on race in the name of 'diversity'. Mockery is a potent weapon, and you know a policy has lost its moral force once people begin to make fun of it. Exhibit A is this video, which takes joy in belittling affirmative action.
I can still recall when few dared challenge it for fear of being called a racist. They're still called racists, but fewer people take it seriously.
Affirmative action is bunk. It’s simply more government sanctioned racial discrimination. It seems our government just can’t get to a place where people are treated equally no matter their skin color, ethnic heritage, class, color or creed. I hope, for the sake of my kids and grandkids that we finally make it to that place people are seen as individuals rather than representatives of some identity group.
When you create a victim class (or classes) you ensure the perpetuation of hard feelings on all sides.
Freedom requires honest competition.
bump for later - Affirmative Action
Could be a form of indirect taxation:
Government forcing employers to give paychecks to unqualfied people, saves the government welfare money.
It essentially forces employers to pay welfare (in the form of payroll checks) instead of the government.
Could be the true motivation.
Affirmative Action white guy heads NAACP,wonder when that will happen?.
Affirmative Action is the strong arm of egalitarianism. Egalitarianism a component of Marxism is the destructive force of our culture, our nation and our people.

I’ll support Affirmative Action once the NBA has 84% white players.
