    It affirms advantaging certain groups of people.   White women are the most advantaged group under affirmative action.

    Many groups who are classified as white shouldn't be.  The Finnish, Hungarians, Greeks, Czechs, Irish-Catholics, Iranians, Lebanese are not white people.   The real whites are the English, white Jews, French, Italians, Chinese are the ones who should be in the white category.

    It's called that because it's an Affirmative Action Against whinny white males who want everything to their advantage and get upset when they're forced to share their toys like a spoiled only child.

    You do not understand what Affirmative Action really is.   Study it.  Don't just repeat what you hear others say. Educate YOURSELF.  You're on the internet anyway.  All the information you need to understand the subject is available to you.  Don't be lazy.  If you want your opinion to be treated as fact, then you better have some facts to back it up.   Nobody respects the "opinion" of someone who says the sun is purple because it is known that it is not purple.  Believing the sun is purple despite the evidence that it is not, or believing it is purple because you have never had access to the information or proof that it's not is NOT an opinion. It's a belief. Beliefs and opinions are NOT synonymous. Just like your car cannot run without an engine but an engine is NOT a car. To be a car needs more than just an engine. An opinion is based in belief, but the belief without facts is not an opinion.

    Because blacks are from Europe. Other 'minorities' are from elsewhere. Why else?

    Anything beifiting Americans is nonessential to a foriegn  class moron.

    because the people that come up with ideas of discrimination are always thinking it is a good idea to discriminate against one group or another.  It never is.

    This is a LIE posted Anonymously, like most of the worst LIES and CRAP from you Republinazi murderers. Look and SEE and NOTE that, many of us Democrats ARE actually White! We are not discriminating against White males, we look to eliminate unfair advantages and privileges, whilst ye Racist Murderers shoot up Black churches and Jewish synagogues and march to Nazi anthems at Pacifica Heights and in Charlottesville, killing members of minority races, Gays, and Hispanics just trying to SHOP in Texas malls. Your Trump "Economy" is based on the loot and plunder from minorities you intend to genocide. A BLOOD Economy like that of the Third Reich. You are following the Beast into Abbadon for blood-soaked shekels, selling out the lives of the nations and the principles of the founding Fathers and prostituting yourselves for blood money. You are drunk of the blood of the saints and thirsting for more and you will wind up in Hell. Be damned!

    By defining white males as intact with their unfair advantage and privileges, it is simply inexplicable.

    It is not.  What makes you think it is?

    because that isn't what affirmative action is.

    please educate yourself better
