    Affirmative action is is reverse racial discrimination in which the best candidate for a position may be snubbed by a "minority" candidate who is less qualified in order to make things "diverse."

    Consider two bad choices that REPUBLICAN presidents made:

    - Bush Sr. chose Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court, and he is a poor quality justice who is also a right-wing ideologue.

    - Trump chose Ben Carson, an utter incompetent, to be the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

    Yes, I think positive action must be taken because it will be in America's interest. I think Biden knows what he is doing. I completely believe in him.

    No. Affirmative action is fine the way it is right now.

    Affirmative Action is old. Democrats moved on to Racial Equity which is basically Equality of Outcome. They don’t want equality of opportunity. They want similar outcome. They want explicit quotas based on race

    In what way? And he (just last week) extended the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include the same protections to LBGTQ people. Were you asleep, or just masturbating?
