The Supreme Court cast doubt Tuesday on the future of affirmative action at the nation’s colleges and universities, agreeing to hear an appeal
from a white student in Texas who seeks an end to "racial preferences" in college admissions.
Good for equality. We all need to be treated the same. I do not see affirmative action as a "racial preference" at all.
Take firefighting and the inclusion of X amount of female firefighters.
A group of female New York firefighters is threatening to sue the FDNY, claiming the department doesn't just discriminate against minorities -- it
continues to discriminate against women.
Yes, an older article but this is where I am going.
I want the best MAN or WOMAN for the job. Regardless of race or sex. It's about qualifications and what you bring to the table.
If I'm in a burning building, I want a 230 pound dude coming to get me.
Take nursing for example. Through my own experiences I prefer female nurses. I want as many men to go into nursing as possible if they choose too.
If they don't stack up, does that mean they should still be handed X% of the nursing jobs?
Flame me for a stereotypical post. I just don't see it that way.
Or debate my stance.
Best qualified gets the job. Period.
