I disagree with it because of two cases I am familiar with. City here in Alabama was hiring new inspector. Were told it must be an African American. Before new hires were picked from top 10 on Civil service test. This time they had to go down to number 47 on test. Similar thing happened when told they had to hire woman. This is just not right. You end up with unqualified inspectors.

discrimination always has a price tag attached to it and positive discrimination is still discrimination so someone will have to pay the bill.

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.

I attended a debate about the end of affirmative action , as it appears as the playing field has been largely leveled ,and in the case of Princeton Univ... Asian and Latino students are being discriminated against in favor of black students. A debater said " We will never , ever catch up in this society". I think that is defeat mentality and an entrenched of privilege.

I was expecting several, brief case study examples, e.g. in South Africa, Malaysia, India, and the economic and social consequences (presumably negative for all involved, including those AA was designed to "help").
