GET RID OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION?!

Many r against affirmative action as they feel one should advance whether in school or job based on work and not color. The black people were slaves and perhaps have had a rougher time of it and thus a longer road to follow toward success. What u think?!

I am against affirmative action, if they struggle ability wise, then tutor and assist in their learning, don't promote simply because of colour or gender, it doesn't help it hinders, particularly by putting them into positions they are not capable of. back ground of any type does not determine wether you can or can't, some people irrespective of their background may have learning difficulties and find it just as difficult, provide support for those who need it in their learning by all means, but don't promote those struggling for struggling.....they wont value it....

The factors which you mention (slavery) are no longer factors, their upbringing today is no different than that of any other race in your country they have same resources etc, the differences culture wise are brought about by finances and living in area's with varying resources, work to provide better resources in area's which lack it, educational support across the board for those who struggle, and you will see results, but it is only those who want too who will put in the effort, even a little bit of effort will see amazing results....

Look at the changes the US made to the English Language in order to bring everyone in line with the lowest denominator in order to elimate illiteracy, it hasn't reduced anything, instead seen the standards across the board lower......I am sorry to say but I come across exceptionally few (in relation to total number I come across online) US citizens who can effectively communicate using US english let alone English.

I think I'm not gonna touch this one LOL but I HAVE read an interesting book on the subject. I think it was called "Separate But Unequal", and I KNOW the author was Dinesh D'Souza. I'm a bleeding-heart liberal budding social worker, but I think this one's right on track.
