Affirmative Action Laws: Are They Fair? PHI 103 Dr. LaCasta-Revell June 4, 2010 Affirmative Action Laws: Are They Fair? In an ideal society, race and gender should not be used as the determining factors when considering admission to universities, hiring, or government contracts, but racism and oppression have frequently described the minority experience in the United States. Affirmative action recognizes that in order to put an end to racist practices, race must be taken into account. Affirmative action policies attempt to counterbalance discrimination against women and minorities in employment and education, and give disadvantaged minorities a boost.

Diversity works to change the culture of that organization. Diversity realizes the value in a mixture of varying cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. So, instead of accomplishing the diversity of college students admitted, it is acting as reverse discrimination. What is affirmative action though; it is the practice, which emerged in the 1960s as a result of efforts by the civil rights movement to get America to honor its original contract, that "all (people)are created equal." This process is done usually by institutions of giving preference to racial minorities or women when hiring, giving awards, or deciding whom to admit.

To cut the story short, the minority may have better academic scores or performances, they need to face the reality that opportunities of employment and promotion are still being mainly preserved for the white. So, before discussing the racial, gender makeup of the police force resemble the makeup of the community it serves, we cannot oversee the obstacles of the minority of being put and promoted in certain selected career field. If we trace the growing diversity that now exists in American police departments, meanwhile, we will not be surprised that the disparity and ratio of racial, ethnic, gender makeup of the police force to the communities is outstanding. All police departments are called on to enforce the laws and maintain public safety and public order. In order to better facilitate public safety and serve the communities, better strategic designs, tactical approaches, organizational structuring are expected.
an individual who can compete with whites on the same level,’” (Benjamin). The negative and downbeat jab at minorities’ abilities and potentials called Affirmative Action is supposed to be a program designed to end racism; instead, it really just lowers the standards for minorities. The term affirmative action refers to policies intended to promote access to education or employment typically aimed at minorities. The motivation for it is to redress the effects of past and current discrimination and to encourage public institutions to be more representative of the population. However, the faulty scheme actually lowers the bar for minorities consequently causing reverse discrimination that gives
Affirmative action promotes a positive and diverse population that would not be as positive and diverse without universities adopting these policies. Students starting at a disadvantage need a boost; students in the minority, generally speaking, usually come from these disadvantaged backgrounds and are unable to achieve the credentials needed to be admitted to the selective university. However with admission, these disadvantaged students have the opportunity to achieve their best and be a positive impact on the global
Their objection to remedial policies is frequently centered on the claim that specific affirmative action policies will not help those who have in fact been harmed, but will sweep too broadly and provide benefits to those who do not deserve them. Sometimes opponents of affirmative action argue that the harm to be remediated did not occur, or if it did occur—as in the case of racial discrimination in the United States—the harm has dissipated so that remedial measures are no longer necessary. Another important justification for affirmative action is the so-called diversity rationale. Advocates for the diversity rationale argue that society as a whole benefits when affirmative action is used to maintain diverse schools, workplaces, and businesses. According to this argument, people from different backgrounds, cultures, and genders bring complementary skills that collectively enrich the places where they work and learn.
