AffirmativeAffirmitive Action Affirmative Action Affirmative action policies do not benefit those who are supposed to be helped in any way. Instead of Affirmative action decisions in their favor, minorities and females are entrenched in their status because of the lowering of standards and expectations imposed on them by businesses and educational institutions due to the cries of racism and sexism in standards by advocates of AA. Ernest Van Den Haag put it best, when he declares that. ' Affirmative action has done as much injury to black scholars as to black students.' Isn't it time to return to hiring people on individual merit, and return the millions spent on Affirmative action. That money could be better spent on bringing minority and female applicants up to standards. I believe the most qualified person should be awarded the job, regardless of race, ethnicity, or disability.
