I don't believe ANY race, creed, ethnicity, etc should get special consideration in regards to acceptance into any branch of service. Nor should they get special consideration for a job, advancement, raise, or any other perk just because they are a minority or for all but one reason for that matter. The ONLY reason anyone should be considered for any position, placement, raise, advancement, etc. is based on QUALIFICATIONS! If you are the most QUALIFIED person for the position, advacement, raise, perk, etc. you get it. Otherwise WORK HARDER and maybe next time you'll be the most QUALIFIED! I own a very small company and I hire based on that one quality. God knows that's how I was hired and advanced, after being passed over too many times to remember. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS ANTI-CAPITALIST!
