Affirmative Action There are scores of those who oppose the policies of Affirmative Action. The reasons for their opposition are various but they all generally agree on a few key points: policies enacted since the 1970s are out of date, they no longer work, and have outlived their purpose. Many of the critics who accept these ideas are of a more conservative bent, and view Affirmative Action policies as wrong-minded for the way in which they privilege a person’s identity status (in terms of race, gender, ethnicity or some other marker) over their merit. Critics taking this line of argument will also contend that continuing Affirmative Action policies may also constitute “reverse racism” or “reverse discrimination” and favor a minority candidate with lesser qualifications than a more-qualified representative of the majority population. Even those who view the inherent inequalities of the American system, however, and argue that minorities are in some need of institutionalized help to overcome systemic problems also see the policies Affirmative Action as more of a hindrance than a help.
 PA’s have a wide range of responsibilities including patient assessments, physical exams, ordering and interpreting lab tests, suturing of wounds, applying casts, teaching and counseling patients, and prescribing medications. While some states allow PA’s to carry a DEA number, most must prescribe controlled medications under the supervision of a physician. The educational requirements to become a PA are extensive. Applicants to the two year PA program usually possess a bachelor’s degree and have about four years of health care experience. Across the United States, there are currently 130 programs accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).
How far do you agree with the statement that the position of black Americans changes little during the period 1945-1955? It may be argued that during the period 1945-55 the position of the black Americans changed unnoticeable, yet there had been certain factors that in longer term resulted in improving the position of white Americans in a big scale. The improvements consisted of army. Truman desegregated the armed forces in 1948 and appointed the first black federal judge. This meant that the American workers left their jobs to join the army, which created many job opportunities for black Americans, which were needed especially in the defence industries, which now grew in importance as they had to make supplies for the Army such as guns and tanks.

Final Essay Questions #1. Explain why anthropologists no longer think the race concept is the best way to understand human variation. There are many anthropologists that argue that race concept is not a scientifically useful term. The reason for this is because race concept is a social construction and race is a relative construct. Arbitrariness of classification varies from place to place and person to person.

Another case, known as the Bolling v. Sharpe case, was also combined when taken to Supreme Court. For a while nobody would step up and initiate a case in the District of Columbia. The role was finally taken by Barbershop owner, Gardner Bishop. On September 11th, 1950 Bishop led a group of African students to a white high school. He demanded enrollment of these kids and argued that the school was clearly big enough for 11 more students.
Many people claim that this distinction in race is necessary because the society in which we live is still racist and only parents of the same ethnic group would be able to give enough cultural support to the children. On the other hand this distinction on races can be considered racist for some people and it could contribute to create a racist society. In the section called “Room for Debate” of the New York Times website, we can find a debate showing different arguments about this issue. In the depate there are three participants with very clear and strong positions. One of the participants is Kevin Noble, author of the article “Not a Deciding Factor but not to be ignored”.
Benn Michaels' argument has a major weakness, because what he is asking America, that is to ignore racial differences, is so far fetched that it would never be able to happen. I believe that Giroux's argument is flawed simply because he comes down so hard on the people who want diversity gone. He wants diversity to be there for the
At the same time that I believe that Affirmative Action is a beneficial boost to get minorities flowing into college, I most strongly believe that Affirmative Action is not helpful because it does not have an effective result for those who really require it. According to Milles Cowin “The study, which spanned from 1968 to 1982, reported that about 45% of the students who were accepted as a result of affirmative action, despite lower grades and test scores, were white.” (124). The essence of this data is to point out that although affirmative action is aiding a vast amount of minority students, it actually does not specifically help the targeted group of; women, African American, and other minorities. Based off of this we can tell that the effectiveness of this beneficial mandate was not taken advantage of by the people whom it was meant to assist, since “45% of the students who were accepted as a result of affirmative action… were white.” Writing an article for USA Today, Greg Toppo and Anthony BeBarros discuss, “Whatever the cause, it’s clear that many poor and minority students never make it to college.
