  • 20. Affirmative Action
    Get rid of it
    No longer needed because women are now treated equally
    57% of all college students are female
    Since 1990, women have earned more baccalaureate degrees than men
    Was originally designed to make up for slavery, but many of the “blacks” that are admitted to university are actually first or second generation immigrants from countries like Ghana or Nigeria
    Many minorities feel insecure on campuses and at jobs b/c they feel like they have to prove themselves
    We need it
    White men still have the most power
    At the end of the 20th century, only 16% of blacks held profession or managerial positions, compared with 31% for whites
    Women own 39% of contracting firms, but less than 3% of federal contracts go to firms owned by women
    A 1993 study found that companies with hiring practices that valued women and minorities performed 24% better in the stock market than those who did not
    Affirmative action corrects the terrible injuries that U.S. culture has allowed for centuries
