Supply Side Affirmative Action Is it Necessary Affirmative action is a necessary part of todays economic world Even if no one wants to admit it corporate America is still ruled by rich white people whether this is fair or not is another question Racism also still lives on in this country not as much as the earlier parts of last century but it is still there We need these laws that give people an equal opportunity to show off their talents and affirmative action is the way to do it The author makes a good point about the local newspapers hiring some black photographers just so they could go to the ghetto and not look too suspicious Page 1999 p 411 and I am sure there were a lot of companies who hired minorities just because whether it was public pressure or whatever they wanted to have minorities on the payroll Most of these employers probably did not want too but they had no choice The man in the story had great credentials as well he was an honor student and had worked as a carrier boy since the age of twelve They still turned him down though As he states though twenty years later they bought his syndicated column Page 1999 p411 The only problem I have with affirmative action is the candidate must qualify for the position Whether it is getting into a college or getting a job or even a loan They must have the scores to get into a specific college I think back earlier in the year when all the fuss over Michigan Universities admission polices were being debated I did not keep up with the full story but I know that even if they had to accept so many minorities none should be accepted if the criteria was not meant Another example I can think of is Virginia Military Institute not wanting to admit any females into the college
