Monster Essays - Anti-Affirmative Action
"That student was accepted because of affirmative action policies."
With my first intake of the phrase, I realized that the student, whom I knew and
worked with so many times, the one with such a lack of motivational ability,
confidence, and ideas, was now occupying my chances towards a preferred school.
"Affirmative action", I soon found out, was used by President John F. Kennedy
over 30 years ago to imply equality and equal access to all, disregarding race,
creed, color, or national origin. As a policy setting out to resolve the
problems of discrimination, Affirmative Action is simply nothing more than a
quota of reverse discrimination.
