    What?? No affirmative action to abolish..Recent events prove that high schools, and colleges need to make "Government" courses mandatory. I mean people are so uniformed, frankly I'm embarrassed.

    In our state it is needed for the Caucasian males.  There is really no hope for them trying to obtain employment.

    Wouldn't happen because the Left's obsession with science and numbers conveniently takes a break under certain circumstances.

    Certainly not.  I don’t see any correlation.

    You need to draw the correlation to your assertion f/ specific current events. We're not mind readers. I don't see activism that draws attention to racial inequality a reason to bash affirmative action if that's what you're talking about ... quite the contrary. Passiveness is tacit approval. We know that doesn't work. It's how unrest became activism. I saw activism in the mid 1950s result in the Civil Rights Act mid 1960s. Sure, it got ugly at times but the results were positive.

    Quite the contrary. Recent events prove that affirmative action in it's current state is wholly inadequate to redress the problems caused by the racist history and present of the US. The only proper redress is the immediate transfer of all wealth to Native American and African American US citizens.

    The only systematic racism we have.

    Not recent events, there has been evidence that it should have been abolished a while ago with minorities making the case themselves.

    several years back a guy that sat on the admissions board of an Ivy League medical school said that, if they had gone strictly on academic merit, 100% of their incoming first year med students would have been Asian females for three consecutive years...

    ....as long as that kind of thing remains a trend, affirmative action isn't going anywhere...
