Does Affirmative Action make the assumption that minority groups are incapable of achieving the same as non-minority groups without government intervention?

Yes, very much so. It is racism at its core.

It makes the assumption that they should be treated with hand outs for the rest of time. And it enables racism courtesy of the US government.

i think we should shift to an affirmative action based on your household income as a child.

poor people need the boost, since they do much worse in school. and it would still end up helping racial minorities since they tend to be poorer, but without having any of the race issues involved in the current system. and it would probably help

It makes the assumption that they would otherwise be denied admission on account of race even if they are of the same achievement level.

I agree. There is also substantial evidence to back this theory up.

Yes, and then it prescribes racism as the fix.
