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.

No. Let the free market decide and those non-Whites who are qualified will be promoted and advance. Quotas, set asides and affirmative action are fundamentally unfair.

The key is "qualified." However the uncomfortable fact / inconvenient truth is, according to studies like the Bell Cure, show that 25% of Blacks cannot compete because they fall at the bottom of the IQ Bell Cure.

No.

Affirmative action is extremely unfair and gives jobs to people who score lower on tests than other people. Jobs should be given to high performers, not those people who make a not of noise about things that happened long ago in the South.

The Emancipation Proclamation was issued on January 1, 1863. 152 years ago. 152 years!!! How many more centuries have to pass before the guilt trip is over???

Affirmative Action??? For what happened 152 years ago??? Come on?

152 years are some of these people are still talking about freedom as if slavery never ended. I am not responsible for the actions of my great, great, great, great grandparents in 1850.

No.

For example Obama had C- and D level grades and only got into Harvard by affirmative action. That is not fair.

The same thing happens in the fire department. Minorities with lower scores are elevated over White Males with better scores. I say hire the best candidate and be color blind and not use quotas.
