Created Equal Analysis of Thaddeus Watulaks Affirmative Action Encourages Racism It was as if even I were being discriminated against as I read Mr ThaddeusWatulaks Essay on the relationship between affirmative action and discrimination I had never actually thought about the implications or the effects of such a policy before Mr Watulak angrily asserts that affirmative action is most definatly a barrier to good relations between black and white America He asks the question How is affirmative action racist 206 and then proceeds to explain by appealing to the readers sense of right and wrong by using many anecdotes and by considering the posiblity of affecting a reader who might be benifiting from affirmative action Watulak suggests that affirmative action must be discriminatory based simply on the definition of discrimination itself - action or policies based on prejudice or partiality 206 This is an excellent use of a resource to make his point as he follow it up by attacking the founder of this policy the US government and the fact that our society is supposed to be based on equality His tone becomes an outrage at the insinuation that the white race should pay for racial crimes commited by our ancestors He states that No one alive today has ever been a slave or owned a slave 206 so why should we be punished Watulak clearly believes that these issues must be driving a gap into good race relations Mr Watulaks use of anecdotes in his essay also give a strong support to his thesis Many times he uses these anecdotes to paint a picture for the reader For example he explains that he will never understand why an Old-money American family of Hispanic descent should recieve preferrence over a dirt-poor Australian immigrant Through-out the entire paper Watulak comes up with many short out-takes to support his main points about such things as taking insult at recieving preference
