Posted on 05/20/2014 4:07:51 PM PDT by Olog-hai
A MTV survey found something shocking about Millennials: 88% think affirmative action policies are unfair. Translation: 88% of Millennials are racist, or something. Well, at least thats probably how the folks at MSNBC will take it. [ ]
The survey found that 88% oppose such programs because they believe that favoring one race over another is unfair, because of their belief in equality.

88% OF MILLENNIALS ARE RACIST
It’s because they have been victims of it first- hand in college apps. They know that if they could just mark the right color box, they would have a huge leg up in the admissions process.
Huge wedge issue.
Is it a coincidence that 12% of the population is african american?
I wonder if they realize that is how Obama got to be Dear Leader?
The millennials know that discrimination by race, color, creed, and sexuality is over. They are right. Therefore if any of the above are given advantage they know that is discriminatory against others.
The millennials will not tolerate discrimination. Discrimination with the exception of reverse discrimination is over.
Very simply, the millennials got it. They do not tolerate discrimination.
I think this goes to show how tired of racial BS, PC etc they are. They’ve been fed this crap their entire lives “White privilege” racial pandering, blatant hypocritical discrimination against whites
A poll and a voting booth at least gives them the freedom to say FU to this BS. I’d be mad as hell if I was one of them.
This kind of polls gives me hope for the future, that young people aren’t hopelessly liberal.
I look forward to their input on tax and spending issues, when they go to work, and see how much they pay in taxes. Then when they start to think of what they are getting for their tax dollars.
Blacks make up 13% of the population.
87% of the population are racists. 1% are Uncle Toms.
Was it Juan Williams who said this weekend while discussing the New York Times situation “People are against affirmative action but have no problem with patronage”?
12% of the poll were black.
:: crickets chirp::
See here young fella, the liberals will tell you which side of history is the right one.
I’m probably on the leading edge of having been among the first subject to affirmative action my entire adult life, from college onward. Any residual bias against minorities or women in hiring has long since been beaten out of the system, replaced by a bias in favor of minorities and women.
The bias was the problem and a different sort of bias is still the problem. Hire based upon merit. Hire the best candidate you can and don’t concern yourself with gender or race.
And yet I’m sure the vast majority of these Millenials voted for an Affirmative Action president ...twice
It’s not just millennials — every liberal / demwit I’ve ever been friends with who expressed an opinion about any kind of gov’t racial preferences was against it. Has something to do with graduating college and not getting a job in their field of study. :’) It’s one thing when alleged racism is allegedly carried out by alleged rich white males...
MTV not deep-sixing these results is as much a story as the survey results.

The great Thomas Sowell has written about Affirmative Action programs being harmful to the very black people they purportedly were planned to help. Instead of gaining admission to colleges where they would have had a better chance of succeeding and graduating, many black students have won the admissions lottery at more difficult universities, and failed at higher rates, having kept more academically qualified students out of those (previously) better universities.
The quality of education overall has suffered from affirmative action. Ivy League degrees are now a disgustingly expensive bad joke, on their recipients as well as upon the rest of society that continues to expect competence from what have become cesspools of intellectual corruption.
Worst of all, the nation has had to suffer from incompetent blowhards like odinga and the wookie, and other such, who were shuffled through Ivy League colleges in spite of their severe mental retardation.
They need to discover things like religion and morality before they can develop the character to save the USA. Holding notions like “equality” too dearly (as the left arbitrarily defines it) will hold them back.
It's almost like that if we engage people my age instead of belittling them, we could make some headway with young people.
We don’t have to agree on everything, just a few basics is good enough.
” Id be mad as hell if I was one of them.”
I think the real way they’re feeling right now is homicidal, not mad as heck.
When my son graduated high school in 07, he and his friends commented that if they wanted to get into college or get scholarships, they needed to check the box that said they were black.
I was trying to be kinder and gentler :)
If the people in this country ever get smart enough to put what they believe in together with whom they vote for.......
Yes; I wager you anything that there’s going to be a lot of payback, it’s just what form it will take that is up for debate. All that is needed is the right trigger.
Young people are a lot more conservative deep down, but it’s just a series of life experiences that brings it to the surface.
“The Millennials may end up saving this country; not necessarily because they want to, but simply because that will be their only way to survive personally. “
Exactly; personal survival instead of collective patriotism.
IF there were better candidates, there would be young people voting for them.
I bet anything that if Paul Ryan had been a candidate, he would have won in a landslide.
Instead, they ran Romney as President instead of vice-President.
” other such, who were shuffled through Ivy League colleges in spite of their severe mental retardation.”
Like celebrities; Claire Danes and intellectual dipweed Natalie Portman and James Franco. These are the types who get automatic acceptance and degrees.
Then the intellectual giant duo the Olson Twins get accepted into University of New York and apparently don’t finish. So yeah, we have a lot of those mentally challenged morons stinking up the classrooms and taking up space that should go to someone who is more serious about their education.
Exactly; personal survival instead of collective patriotism.
It is happening about ten years later than I expected and hoped, but it is happening.
This gelling among Millennials is a collective of sorts; not in the kum-bay-yah sense; but more in the sense of: "let's follow these three percent who have their heads on straight, or we will all perish."
It is about three percent of each generation that sets the pace, and leads (for better or worse) the rest of the generational trends. In a Crisis Era, the Hero generation will set the direction of the nation for the next 80 to 100 years if they succeed, or possibly take the first steps into a thousand years of darkness, a New Dark Age, if they fail.
You cannot surrender, and you must not fail.
You’ll notice that a lot of younger adults are a lot less tolerant about stuff like:
Murder (a lot of youngsters are pro-death penalty in a lot of cases)
Kids out of wedlock (exasperation with the stupidity of not using protection)
There are a lot of morons, but the young are in fact a lot more realistic about so many things.
