Affirmative Action

Do we really need it? Is it fair? Is it legal? No, no, and no!

Let’s see, we have the first black president in U.S. history. Was it affirmative action that got him there? Nope. It was his rhetoric, not skin color, that got him elected.

Is it fair to hire someone based on the color of their skin or their ethnic background instead of their qualifications? Um, that, too, is a no. Let me tell ya, if I owned a business and had one position open with three candidates: one white, one hispanic, and one black, who do you think I’ll hire? It depends on who the most qualified person is. That’s the way the majority of companies operate. Face it, they’re in the business of making money. Sure fifty, even twenty years ago they might’ve hired based on race. But profits are so important now, they’re going to hire the most qualified.

All affirmative action is is government-sponsored discrimination. Plain and simple. Anybody that thinks they deserve a job because they’re black, brown, red, yellow, whatever, needs a reality check. The fact of the matter is that sometimes a white guy will be more qualified that a hispanic, and vice versa. So can we please do away with the politically correct anti-discrimination discrimination and get some common sense back in our lives?
