Why don't get rid of AFFIRMITIVE ACTION, it's useless to white people, so that would make it, DISCRIMMINATION, HOW BOUT THAT.

Why kick a dead horse.

It's not useless until this huge disparity between different races/ethnicities is gone. For now, virtually all CEOs are white males. Coincidence? Does it really make logical sense to say nonwhites are simply "lazy failures"? Or perhaps there's something else going on in society? White people shouldn't be jealous over affirmative action because we are already born with a huge advantage. Education is the path to success and equality. Black and hispanic people are way overrepresented in poor neighborhods and prisons, so call me crazy but I would think education is the best way to fix that.

OK so most CFOs are white. And that appears to be wrong, lets assume that for now. So we MUST give blacks preferences; right?
Most NBA and NFL players are black.
So lets give whites preferences.
Why not!

That's a completely unfit comparison. Not all logic will make sense when applied to random situations. There's a reason the NFL and NBA consists mostly of black people - because when you set aside work ethic, black people have somewhat of a BIOLOGICAL advantage in athletics. So we're talking about natural talent that a person either has or doesn't have. To be a CEO doesn't require traits that are "specific" to white people. No race is intellectually superior than the other and to be a CEO or management or whatever requires certain intellectual abilities that ALL races posses, but for whatever reason only white males get any credit for. See the huge difference?

Let us not forget that White females benefit from affirmative action more than anybody else! Being a CEO has more to do with politics than anything else. People in power will only give up power in the face of more power! If Blacks or Hispanics were in power it would be the same! Passing the power down to your people.

I'm sure this would be the same if any other race were in power. But in reality it's white people who are in power and that's not right. We all deserve an equal chance at success and that isn't possible with the status quo.

It is not useless. It gives a lot of people an excuse for their laziness and failure.

This makes no sense. Affirmative action doesn't bring in a bunch of failures to universities, that's ridiculous and clearly a pathetic scare tactic.

My meaning is a lot of Whites are using affirmative actions as an excuse for their failures now. So, my point is it does benefit everybody else because it gives them an excuse for their failures! Also, whenever they are outperformed by minorities, many times they use affirmative action to explain the unexpected benefit of making society more fair. I am seeing more of that today!

Oh, I was WAY off. I thought you meant it excused failures as in it allowed failures into good schools. You're right I have seen a lot of white people use this as an excuse.

99 percent of what goes on in this country can be considered WET programs or promotions. Just because we don't call it that doesn't mean it isn't.

Iam saying there should be no bet awards shows or any white shows we are all from the same race it's called human race

Obviously there's a difference in culture between black and white Americans. You're fooling yourself if you think we're all the same. Innately sure but the culture we are raised in shapes us. Black Americans can have their own genre if they want. Do you want to get rid of Spanish TV channels too?

You stop hockey and we will stop BET awards.

Using RACE as a preference or rejection (whether white, black, yellow, etc) is RACIST!

While I agree that affirmative action has become useless and out dated, your reasoning is ignorant and offensive !

I agree it is outdated and one could argue it's reverse racism against whites I don't agree with your reasoning to your beliefs. This country has come very far with treatment of minorities. Racism will never end, it's unfortunate but reality. I don't believe racism is as ramped as some like to claim.
