Yes, I need help.

My ancestors were slaves and Obama is right that we need to correct the sins of the past through affirmative action.

No.

Our president is the result of affirmative action that fixed his grades and allowed him to be President with sub-average grades.

"Affirmative" means positive. There is nothing positive about giving a job to an unqualified individual just because they have a certain skin pigment. That is completely idiotic.

It all depends. Generally, I oppose hard quotas, but if there were an illegal pattern of deliberate discrimination in the past, it may be appropriate in some cases. Businesses should be able to hire the best qualified people, but if a certain class of people was arbitrarily excluded, I would not oppose it in such cases.

There are few Whites and even fewer Asians playing basketball. Few Blacks are swimmers. I believe in letting the marketplace decide and not setting quotas.

Like I said, I oppose hard quotas based on population percentages. When qualified minorities are systematically excluded, that is wrong and any business that practices such should be subject to having affirmative action quotas placed on them.
