    Are Affirmative Action programs racist?[W:110]

    Vote away my friends, vote away
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    To my mind, racism requires a believe of one race being superior or inferior to others. Affirmative action programs make the assumption that certain races have not had the same optunities. That means to my mind that they are racial, not racist.

    It depends on how they're designed and implemented

    Factually AA/EEO is not racist and can't be by definition. This fact will never change.

    Now do some people and Orgs practice things that are racist? yes absolutely but by definition thats NOT AA/EEO. This is the reality that many people simply don understand.

    I have little to add...other then I completely disagree with anyone being forced/encouraged by government to hire someone over someone else purely due to the melanin content of their skin.

    No, because the discrimination is just. Diversity increases the value of a university education and thus the quality of the school.
