I believe that America needs to start recognizing that there are no minorities anymore. We are all Americans. End of story. If you are in America it is because you are or want to be an American. We are all people and we are all Americans. The color of one's skin, one's gender, one's sexual preference, or one's religion should not make us different enough to cause such a segregated society. We don't have separate facilities, but we are certainly segregated to this day, and it's pathetic.

No, the Democrats purposely designed affirmative action to produce failure and increase racism. If blacks had followed Malcolm X instead of MLK they would not have remained in the permanent underclass the Democrats created for them

Not when it interferes with the best qualified person through testing, etc. Do we go into a black or Hispanic business and demand that they fire their black or Hispanic workers and replace them with whites.? Fair play?

Regardless, we should create more social programs to address poverty, and also increase the acceptance of different races, forget the "minority" everyone needs to be treated equal, it's not "black lives matter" it's not "minority lives matter" It's every god damn life matters.

@HistoriaRConstitution from Ohio commented…11mos

No

"social programs to address poverty"

An oversimplified counter to that would be

  • Start buying more American made products.
  • Stop sending jobs and production overseas.

-- Stimulating the economy by providing more long lasting careers for families.

The answer isn't programs for poverty the answer is pro (in-house) America.

Building stability for generations.

Yes, in a perfect world No.. but increase education spending to make ALL Schools funding the same, from Beverly Hills to Southside of Chicago to small town Iowa.. Same opportunity for all

@B4NR785Democrat from Illinois answered…4hrs

Yes, however expecting a clean equal amount of all peoples and genders in all fields is highly unrealistic and entirely unachievable. The most QUALIFIED should fill the position.

@B4KZ7SXTranshumanist from Georgia answered…5 days

No, but I think private businesses should be able to hire primarily minorities if they want to

@GioSoloRepublican from Arizona answered…2wks

No, no one should receive favorable treatment for any intrinsic characteristics.

@B4DKNBJVeteran from Oregon answered…3wks

No, Not in current form. They should have a goal of not being needed but instead they trap minorities in the very circumstances they claim to help.

@B49W7XMRepublican from Maryland answered…4wks

Yes, but affirmative action should be based on socioeconomic status, not race

@juice1367Transhumanist from Utah answered…2yrs

No, and minority groups should not receive favorable treatment because its unfair. Were all people equally and nobody is more special or important than the other.

No, it holds people of different races to different standers which is harmful and unfair to those who are held at a higher level

@9QJLXT8Veteran from Rhode Island answered…2yrs

I support programs that help all people gain access to good education

@9QJ6NFGRepublican from Georgia answered…2yrs

Hiring or any selection for any role or position should be based on effort of the individual, not preferential treatment of any group

@9Q8SM8XPeace and Freedom from New York answered…2yrs

No, but we should have affirmative action based on socioeconomic status.

@9Q6HN69Veteran from Mississippi answered…2yrs

Different races should not get better treatment just because they are a minority, they should get better treatment based off of income level though.

@9Q638Z7Veteran from Texas answered…2yrs

Generally No. However, I agree with Employment and Government. We should not mandate affirmative action but reward it when an employer or gov't entity encourages it.

@9PPQYBLDemocrat from Illinois answered…2yrs

Yes, but with heavy reform; weigh income, school, residential area, and race, with the final being the least important, rather than solely race or ethnicity.

Yes, in theory. Minority group consideration should be one of many factors considered in a decision; however, current application is faulty.

@Eric-PollmannWorking Family from Louisiana answered…2yrs

No, employment should be based on the candidate's qualifications.

@9P2ZP7XWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, minority should treat equally as majority, nothing more and nothing less.

@9NZYBCPWomen’s Equality from Indiana answered…2yrs

I think the most qualified person should be hired for a job regardless of sexual orientation, Gender or color of skin. I think that minority group should be given an interview, And not be discriminated against.

@9NYF8QKRepublican from Rhode Island answered…2yrs

I support affirmative action as a temporary measure. I believe that all humans - regardless of their social class or race - have the ability to rise up and make a life of their own. The federal government should not be funding social programs that just gives money and resources. That needs to be earned by the individual as it is them - not the government - that is in charge of their own destiny.

@9NXJG57Republican from New York answered…2yrs

No, no group(s) should receive any favorable treatment that is unavailable to others.

@9NT6XHCVeteran from California answered…2yrs

On a moral level no but I believe government has no right regulating private universities. For public universities, I do not support affirmative action.

Maybe, but only if these programs are instituted voluntarily, and not imposed by force through government

@9N5WK24Libertarian from Texas answered…2yrs

No, but this is because they usually breed more inequality in the opposite direction. Their intentions are good, but the end results often aren’t.

@9MX98N9Progressive from California answered…2yrs

Yes we need to address the systemic race and gender inequality in all aspects of life. Affirmative action is too limited. We need a complete shift in our educational systems, city planning, to taxation and criminal justice systems. Affirmative action is only scratching the surface of the inequality in America. We have have deep roots of racism and sexism that needs to

@9MSQ39XRepublican from Michigan answered…2yrs
