Just look at the entire country of South Africa if you want to see how stupidly retarded and outright racist AA is.
I heard that the UC system's rate of Black graduation skyrocketed a few years after it abolished affirmative action. When underqualified Blacks stopped enrolling at Berkeley and UCLA, but at lower-tiered schools, they began to be able to keep up with the pace of coursework.Of course, the qualified Blacks were still able to both enroll and graduate at Berkeley and UCLA.
The worst part about AA is that as a minority you can NEVER feel that you truly earned your accomplishments. This application cycle I was constantly thinking about whether or not I truly deserved to get that screening interview, to get invited for a callback, and to receive an offer. I'm always wondering if the firms gave me all these opportunities to fill a quota or to look PC for their clients. Another bad feeling is that others won't ever give you full credit for your accomplishments. "Ah that f-ing kid got his interview/job because of AA." That statement might sound ignorant but let's be perfectly honest here, I can't be 100% sure that I got to where i'm at solely because of my talents and hard-work... I think my credentials are quite good but it's annoying that a lot of ppl may look at me and not think about my qualifications but wonder which quota i'll be filling. However, before we jump on the "AA is unfair" bandwagon i'm seeing TONS of law students (whites and minorities) getting all kinds of interviews and offers that they don't deserve solely because their mommies and daddies know the right people. wow i'm watching american beauty right now and the dude just got shot in the back of the head... whoa this movie is crazy...
