I'm so pleased you brought those up. Ironically, affirmative action was a necessary reaction
to offset the unjust, manipulated placement of non-minorities into positions in which THEY were not themselves necessarily qualified. Moreover, AA today still requires that the beneficiary is qualified first. So, to think unqualified minorities are simply eased on in without first being qualified is another example of racism in and of itself -a double whammy!
But, I think we've digressed enough...
