Question and answer
Q: What in your opinion are the shortcomings of affirmative action
A: Opponents of affirmative action policies argue that it is based on collectivism and merely another form of discrimination because it can result in qualified applicants being denied entry to higher education or employment because they belong to a [ particular social group (usually the historically socio-politically dominant group; typically majority races and men, regardless of social standing or
financial need.) Some opponents say that affirmative action devalues the accomplishments of people who are chosen because of the social group they belong to rather than their qualifications.One problem is the way it is administered. Some companies I have encountered think hiring white american males is illegal. Many times I have been told "Why are you applying here we only hire women and minorities" that is reverse discrimination. I have had security called on me when I just walked in to a large manufaacturing business that only hired illegal aliens. Affirmative action makes it legal to discriminate against white American males and that should be illegal but that is the way it has been for the last 40 years. ]
