    That's a misconception, you'd need to look at the particulars to establish if a policy is racist or not.
    Both quotas and AA are policies based on race.
    Quotas are illegal in the US, because someone who does not meet specified qualifications may be preferred to someone who does solely based on 'race' - this is not so with AA.
    Affirmative Action (I'm assuming you're not referring to Alcoholics Anonymous) is a both a quota program and a racist program.

    Quotas were not needed. The presumption that a private company's hring practices should be dictated by ANY external agency is absurd. This is a free country. The jobs the employers get filled are owned by...the employer, not the employee. Since the job is the employer's, he's got every freedom under the Constitution to put Woody Woodpecker in that position, if it makes him happy.

    Period. Affirmative Action programs can be justified when applied to federal positions only, but not even then, since the purpose the government was established was to promote freedom and equality before the law. Discriminating via law is anti-thetical to the national ideal.

    No, quotas are one form of AA, but not the only one. AA can also mean programs to reach out to and find qualified minority candidates and get them to apply for a position. Roderic is correct. I was referring to quotas in my original post.

    Does that extend to regular old discrimination too?

    It's actually neither, where you live.

    The US Supreme Court ruled that affirmative action was unfair if it led to reverse discrimination, in 1978.
