… to the best man for the job actually getting the job? Now, I am by no means against giving equal opportunity to anyone who wants to apply for a job, position, school, whatever. But what I vehemently oppose is setting quotas for certain racial types.
Why does this still exist? Why is it that if an exceptional candidate does not fit a racial profile he or she is ignored in favor of a more politically correct choice?
Now, even the US Naval Academy is getting involved. This academy is in NO WAY giving preferential treatment to non-minorities. If a student is qualified, he can apply, no matter what. The application process is rigorous, to be sure, but anyone can attend if selected.
Now, however, the academy is asking the Black and Hispanic Caucuses what it can do to get more minorities to come to the school. Is there any doubt? The caucuses will ensure that their racial quotas are being filled. What qualified candidate will be refused entry based on the fact he or she is NOT a minority.
I said it before; AMERICAN first. I could care less as to your cultural heritage. If you are American, that is all that matters. That is what you should be judged on; that and your academic and civic performance. Drop the Affirmative Action crap. In the past, it served a purpose. Now, like so many other groups, it only serves to divide.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
