Affirmative Action= Reverse racism.
I thought the point was to get ride of racism world wide... Supporting something that induces it seems a bit counterproductive
I'm a minority and I think its wrong, besides it only really benefits one minority group.
Can't argue that.
1. While it may be true that, in the macro sense, blacks get the most "benefit" from AA, this is only because they're the largest minority group. In terms, of individual people, the group that tends to get the most benefit would be native Americans.
2. The way you are defining 'racism' is a lack of colorblindness. But there are very strong arguments that racism is something that can only be effected by dominant groups, such that recognizing the skin color/race of minority groups is not racism but race awareness. If racism is deeply entrenched in our society, then being color blind doesn't eliminate racism, it legitimizes it.
