It is okay to discriminate against a better qualified black person in order to make room for a lesser qualified white person.
Most qualified should prevail. I don't care what u are
No, but if there was a scenario, where whites where underrepresented, and the two applicants where relatively equal, then it is logical to aim for proportional representation.
Affirmative Action doesn't allow unqualified minorities to get jobs. The applicants must meet all job requirements before being considered for a position.
This is why quotas are bad.
How many times have you gone up against a black person for a job and they got it over you? Because you're obsessed with it.
Lol. Glad I don't consider myself libertarian either.
Not everyone is enlightened. Hopefully you'll come along someday.
Magnum- you're a Libertarian? I thought you were an Independent!
You could argue I'm both. I side with libertarians most of the time though.
Do you follow rebelfury76?
Nope. Good stuff? I'll check it out.
Wow, of course not!
Disagree, but it's important first to define what "better qualified" means. If both candidates meet the standards, whether for a job or for a college admission, it's strictly a personal bias to declare one "better qualified". Better based on what?
Isn't that what affirmative action is all about?!
It's kinda concerning libertarians said yes most often out the party filter (so far)... Lol wtf libertarians, isn't disagreeing with this the point?
Maybe they mean legally, not morally.
And you're making a very valid point Scotty. Affirmative action is racist and it does manifest itself on the personal level where one family gets a job and another doesn't. It's dumb, dumb, and dumber all rolled-up in a nice liberal sandwich.
Okie, the voice of reason
Funny how the gander doesn't like the goose's sauce
So you mean just giving the same standards that are applied to white people? How dare you! You're only allowed to be racist towards white people in America.
Looks like Scotty has trolls following him. Only a troll would vote yes to this.
It's affirmative action. If it is done for blacks and other minorities, it should be done for whites as well.
Whites aren't a minority
Affirmative action for everybody kind of defeats the intended purpose. For the record, I don't believe we should have it for anyone, but I'm just saying.
That's kinda the point, cyano. :P
Absolutely not. The better qualified individual should ALWAYS be first choice. PERIOD.
Your completely right.... If it's not a private business, for a civil service job the best candidate should be hired. Period. But at a private business the owner should be able to do whatever they want
If it's a private business they should be able to hire whoever they want to
At first I was taken aback by the idea of discrimination, but you have a point. If it's a private business and they want to sell to only a certain group of people, then they should be allowed to hire anyone they want by whatever means they want.
