I'm pretty sure groups like the urban league, among others, are there for poverty stricken black people.

Maybe I'm looking at it with some sort of bias, but I've never thought of AA that way. I've always assumed the low skilled worker is the target for AA.

 

True, but there has never really been an organization that has made a Nationwide significant impact in helping poor blacks in the inner city. About 50%, or half of black people born into poverty leave poverty, so its certainly not impossible, nor do I think there needs to be an organization or policy that lifts blacks out of poverty. In this day and age, Conservatives should be proud of the progress blacks have made, considering being born in the projects and making it to the suburbs is about as "pulling yourself up by your bootstraps" as it gets.

 

Also, AA applies to any company or college with more than 50 employees, or anybody that takes Federal money, so in theory Walmart follows the guildlines of AA, but you don't need very many qualifications to get a job at Walmart (they hire ex convicts) and its pretty much a crap shoot. AA is big in colleges, such most colleges accept Federal money.

Lol where did I say that? He said he wrote this which I assume is for a class of some sort and adding parts like "it's cause you suck" to a formal essay makes you sound bitter and angry. That was my take from it.

You come off as afraid, so I asked why. Now you seem to be deflecting.

Deflecting what? I explained why he seemed angry writing this. Explain to me why you think I come off as afraid? I'm truly interested

Furthermore, Affirmative Action has done nothing to help blacks stuck in extreme poverty, as they aren't qualified to do much. [/b][/i]

Questions?


Wouldn't that be the case for any race, gender or age stuck in extreme poverty?

Pretty much, but folks like to think that any black person off of the street can just walk into Microsoft and get a job.
