In 2014, Do We STILL Need Affirmative Action?***messymandella***

     Calls for equality are being echoed all over the United States, and currently we have a greater debate in Michigan, regarding Affirmative Action. Should America set aside spots and mandatory employment for other ethnicities in the United States?

      At this point in time, we have our biracial President Barack Obama! He won the election because of Hollywood endorsements, education and skill assessment. No one gave President Obama a seat for the presidency.Despite what Fox News may want you to believe. Now, if you listen to the Conservative news elite, you will be brainwashed as those brain-dead Tea Party members.

     Affirmative Action served its purpose to build and instill fairness in the work place, in history. Now, that we have Oprah, Beyoncé and Jay Z, and Deborah Lee (President Of BET), maybe Affirmative Action may need to disappear into the fog of our historical past and remain there.

    Now as a country, we strive to build an empire with a strong mental and physical infrastructure to reflect our legacy.

I want the job because I deserve the position.

I want the job because I want to prove to the world my abilities and ideologies and inner strength, don’t you?

Affirmative Action will leave a bad taste in your corporate and financial relationships. Your beliefs and job effectiveness will always leave a question of accountability.

Do we as a country need Affirmative Action in 2014?

CNN News Reports: Washington (CNN) — The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a Michigan law banning the use of racial criteria in college admissions, a key decision in an unfolding legal and political battle nationally over affirmative action.

The justices found 6-2 that a lower court did not have the authority to set aside the measure approved in a 2006 referendum supported by 58% of voters.

It bars publicly funded colleges from granting “preferential treatment to any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court’s first Latina, reacted sharply to the decision.

“For members of historically marginalized groups, which rely on the federal courts to protect their constitutional rights, the decision can hardly bolster hope for a vision of democracy that preserves for all the right to take part meaningfully and equally in self-government,” Sotomayor wrote.

But three justices in the minorities, Chief Justice John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy and Samuel Alito concluded that the lower court did not have the authority to set aside the law.
