Personally I don't know if I'd use the word "credit". This unconstitutional piece of legislation has done incalculable damage to our society:
- It has encouraged tides of illegal immigration. Even if illegals don't benefit directly from this law, they benefit indirectly because employers are more liable to legal action if their workforces don't show enough "diversity". Illegal immigration enables them to make instant diversity. Just add Mexicans!

- For much the same reason, it has made our country more vulnerable to terrorism by giving protection to people from terror-sponsoring societies.

- It has contributed to the breakdown in character in much of society, by making employers and others covered by this Act afraid of using their power of discipline over those who deserve it, for fear that they might be hit with a lawsuit. Instead, they take the easier route with the attitude of "anything goes".

- And, of course, it exacerbates the problem it was supposedly intended to solve. Many of those who fall under its protection know how to play it to their advantage, the result being that these minorities, when they appear in the workforce, are going to wind up less qualified than whites - NOT because they inherently are less qualified, but because the law imposes a de facto selection bias that contributes to that outcome. The upshot is that minorities appear "inferior" in the eyes of whites who don't properly think through the causes, and racism is perpetuated.
