AfirmativeAction never had to sacrifice one group in order to advance another.The solution was a simple one that everyone involved could have been accommodated without anybody being upset.While we admit that some Racial or Ethnic groups have been disenfranchised over the years and was not given a level playing field so to speak enabling them to move up the rungs of the ladder to achieve the American Dream but to stop the Dreams and Aspirations of one group who also wanted a better future who never caused that injustice was in no way wss that the answer.First let me state that not all Whites grew up with a silver Spoon in their mouths.Yes there are many poor whites today in America. I personally grew up a family of four living in a one bedroom apartment..So did many many others..We lived in a very old apartment Building build in the 1920’s .There were 65 units in each Building and 12 and of these old Apartment Buildings on each block…All Poor Whites..No one had a great job waiting for them upon completion of school.Later on my family moved into City Housing. None of those people described just now ever had any “White Advantage”and we don’t appreciate being painted with a broad brush and made into an apologist for something that we not part and partial in .
THE SOLUTION BELOW…
Colleges are charging $40,000 a year to attend.Not $40’000 total but $40,000 per student per year.You mean to tell me with all that tuition money that they receive not one of these colleges couldn’t afford to open a few more classrooms and hire a few more professors? Of course they could have ..The fiasco concerning this issue could and should have been totally avoided and there never should have had any racial strife to begin with .So lets all agree to firmly place the entire blame where it belonged all along ..On the Colleges and Univercity’s back..Any and all animosity stemming from this issue is their fault only..
