We should do away with preferences for skin color, gender, sexuality. That is discrimination. Those who support affirmative action support discrimination. Those who support discrimination are bigots and supremacists.

Hence, the supporters of affirmative action are bigots and supremacists, as if that isn't the most obvious insight since someone said the sun is hot..

Why are the Democrats so afraid of equality? The democrat party has never supported equality. It has supported

What is wrong with a merit standard?

If you believe your own demographic is too inferior to stand up in an equal merit based society, does that not make you a bigot and supremacist?

The left cannot debate this issue.

They rather will respond with hate and card tosses...

So you want someone to work hard for $10 per hour? No way no how. Pay is always equated with expected productivity. The more pay the harder one works. The less pay the less one works. As it should be.

The title sounds good, but can it happen? Will invested power structures of any sort willingly give up power and influence?

Some get paid for what they do and some get paid for what they know. Invariably, the people who "know" get paid more. You cannot expect to sweep the floor and get $100K a year, moron. Working smarter does not equate to working harder that is why a college degree usually guarantees a more lucrative result over a lifetime

It should start by removing race and ethnicity from every federal and state form, and every college application. The information can only be used to discriminate based upon the DNA one was born with. No one has control over their own skin color, but everyone has control over their own character.

Yes, there is systemic racism in America, but it works pretty much the opposite of what the MSM propels, like the OP's premise.

For the record, Biden cancelled Trump's lawsuit against Yale for racial discrimination against Asians. (That's racist!)

Affirmative Action actually damages minorities. When you lower standards you get naturally get decreased performance. The converse is also true.

You'll fit in great here, getting everything exactly ass backwards is a popular stance around here.

We can't do away with AA yet because there are still too many bigots around
who wouldn't give those people a chance.

There are many jobs where the pay is the same and seniority give more. there are many people hired for the reasons discussed and are not that good. There are people who work more dangerous jobs who do most of that while others stay back or do less and get paid the same. Our drop in productivity proves it.

So are you also going to get rid of "legacy" admissions to Ivy League Schools? The Old Boys/Girls network in corporate hiring? Nepotism? Fraternities and sororities, which serve as networking organizations upon graduation, and all of the various and assorted ways that our current system keeps it "all in the family", and excludes outsiders and minorities?

80% of the job market and other admissions is not based on "merit", but rather an a myriad systems of standards and norms which is designed to ensure that people like me who has connections through family and friends and seldom had to go through a job competition at all. It's not what you know, but WHO you know, and I know a LOT of people.

I can win at 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon all day long.

No, the right can't debate this because it's an argument bereft of reality. Whites have very little based on a merit standard.

Did your parents have any children that weren't mentally challenged?
People fighting bigotry with programs that encourage minority hiring are not racist; they are trying to combat it, shortbus.

Okay, so how do you want to go about dismantling the system that is in place?
remove skin color and gender from all applications,, problem solved,,,

It's not in any applications. They tried a study where they mixed up the names on resumes. The "black names" got picked WAY less than the white sounding names. When they swapped the names around and put the white names on the black people's resumes, the white names got picked. It wasn't their skills or their "merit's". The HR staff were picking the applicants they thought were white.

OldLady, you just said that hiring based upon race is not racist. Literally.

You don't fight racism by instituting racist policies.

Instead of an insult you deserve, I'll give you a compliment... Cute avatar. :)
