not sure why quality has gone down, but it did start about the same time so you do the math,,AA hasnt encouraged anyone,, its forced others to hire or choose them for something they most likely were not qualified for,,since AA was started the minority communities have gone downhill not improved,,The improvements have been obvious, but we're not there yet.Getting rid of AA pulls the teeth of the bigots on both sides. AA has been in effect for over fifty years, if it was going to accomplish anything, by now the improvements would be obvious. It has failed despite billions of dollars being spent. It’s past time to try something else. Make equality the law, not preference.You'll fit in great here, getting everything exactly ass backwards is a popular stance around here.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...
We can't do away with AA yet because there are still too many bigots around
who wouldn't give those people a chance.
I would not say that at all.
AA has encouraged more minorities to get into and succeed in college.
The change you refer to likely is just the entire poor working class in the whole country, of all races, has gone downhill, due to offshoring reducing wages for all working class.
and since its beginning the quality of life in the black community has declines for the majority,,
Most people learn on the job really, so as long as their aptitude was properly evaluated, then AA does no harm.
As far as I know, AA just means you can't just go by standardized test scores.
It is true quality of life has declined in the Black community since AA, but not because of AA, and quality of life has also declined in the poor white community.
pre all the civil rights stuff blacks had the strongest family structures and ever since its gone to the worst,,
So you don't think that the lower quality of life in the black community has anything to do with:
- the lack of good paying jobs in urban settings
- cuts to education
- lack of public recreational facilities and programs due to tax cuts; or
- over policing in the black communities
In Toronto, the Conservative government closed all of the free programs in poor minority communities, and put "user fees" on the use of all recreation centres. 8 years later we had the highest rates of gun crime and murder in the city's history.
There is a direct correlation between investing in children in poor communities, and both poverty and crime - regardless of race.
