Affirmative action has become a hot topic these days. Should it stay or should it go? Or should we just revise it to fit today's times? Some people are extreme to the right; others to the left, many sit on the fence, but whatever the stance, almost everyone has an opinion on affirmative action.
Let me start by explaining exactly what affirmative action is and what it means to us (us being Americans, not a certain race or gender). It came about in the Civil Rights movement in 1964. Affirmative action is the active effort to improve the employment or educational opportunities of minority groups and women. For example, in a business, the management personnel are deciding to whom to give a job promotion. There are two employees to choose between-a woman and a man. They are equally qualified in every way. Who will get the job? Most likely the woman will, because of affirmative action. The same goes for an admissions officer looking at two applicants-one white male, one black male. The black male will most likely be accepted.
