    depends on what type of affirmative action. i think it's a great idea to give students the opportunity to compete at top notch schools, noting that once in, they sink or swim on their merits.

    as for other types, that would be a case by case scenario. we both know quotas exist for a reason, because we are NOT color blind. but they aren't always necessary, imo. or at least are becoming less necessary.

    There's a serious question about this. Because affirmative action is already in the NFL. When looking for headcoaches, teams MUST interview minority coaches, or get fined. It's a problem because it has been in the past that a team knows what head coach they want for their team. But they have to interview minority applicants. But those applicants know that the team wants person X, so they refuse to interview. Then the team gets hit with a fine.

    So why is it that this only goes one way? I would agree in general everything should be decided off of ability, not limited to just players on a field. But whenever anything is said against minorities, or not even against just pointing out statistics or whatever, then it's all of a sudden racist. Rush Limbaugh is a racist because he said McNabb was overrated. Yet Rob Johnson was never taken as one of the best QBs ever, and he has better stats than McNabb and a Super Bowl win. Teams have to interview minority applicants, but they shouldn't have to try to hire more white people to make the demographics reflect society. Pointing out this disparagy is racism. It's an entire double standard that's frankly getting rather annoying. If everything were decided on ability, there's no problem. But if not, then we need to apply things equally. Not just against white people.

    Yes it is, and so is affirmative action in all it's forms.

    Blacks can stand on their own 2 feet if the government and white guilt appeasers would just let us.

    can students who attend sub par schools receiving a sub par education compete for the same university spots as those students attending superior schools?
