Affirmative Action Is Not The Solution For Racial Discrimination

We need to drop a system that stigmatizes minorities if we want to achieve real racial equality.

The true injustices of the world require solvency. While almost anyone admits this statement to be true, affirmative action remains an extremely controversial topic. The reason behind its contentious nature is that affirmative action was created with moral intentions, yet the implementation of this concept has failed to be the vision that it once stood for.

When John F. Kennedy first signed the executive order which started the idea of affirmative action, the system's purpose was clearly to protect African Americans in a time when discrimination was still engrained in American society. However, I would argue that today's affirmative action system is ineffective, stigmatizing and contrary to the Civil Rights Movement.

If we analyze affirmative action solely by the results, we are looking at a system that does not fulfill its original purpose. These policies lead to different standards for different races, which can mismatch students in the college application process.

Specifically, in university settings, this process actually harms minorities because it stresses race rather than disregarding it. The message of the Civil Rights Movement was that all people should be equal, and legislators hoped to create a country which does not take into account race, gender, etc. By adopting affirmative action as a policy, we are actually saying that it is necessary for us to give extra points to minorities in order for them to succeed.

Additionally, this process stigmatizes minorities. People who argue against affirmative action claim that it is unfair and often develop resentful feelings about the process that was originally meant to help minorities. We are currently undoing the affirmative action process with Supreme Court cases such as Fisher v. University of Texas which continue to criticize the implementation of these policies in education.

Another common argument for affirmative action is that minorities do need affirmative action because they will end up in low-income schools and not be able to match students coming from higher-income schools. The solution to this problem, though, is not affirmative action. Instead, we could directly solve for students in poverty by offering more scholarships and opportunities directly to the families in need.

I would argue that universities should be blind when it comes to race and gender. If we adopted this attitude toward the college acceptance process, the college would not be able to discriminate against minorities, and we would also see that race would not always be an issue. One of the problems in our society is that we constantly try to create problems to mend racial disparities, yet the answer to questions of racial inequality is to treat all races equally.
