So The Supreme Court Is Considering Looking At Affirmative Action Again?


by Anonymousreply 1310/10/2012

Have to say I'm one of those rare types on the left who feel strongly in favor of abolishing this.

I'll always feel I was a victim of this sort of thing due to the way I was admitted to college and received desperately needed financial aid, or lack thereof.

It's time people. It's time to take race out of things like education and hiring and by doing so, give American society a little credit for having advanced such a long way in leveling the playing field.

You don't deserve financial help or an education or a job simply based on the color of your skin or your genitalia.

Get fucking rid of it!

We have not advanced enough, I think, as a society to do away with it.

We're probably closer to it than we were forty years ago, but not so close as to be considered a complete meritocracy.

I too am very liberal but think AA needs to be ended.

CNN legal analyst thinks that the Conservative make-up of the Court means a high probability of it ruling against A A

If it's need-based, it makes sense. But we shouldn't have different rules/laws for people based on race.
