When will affirmative action be gone?
January 3, 2013 4 Comments
Simple question: What year will be the first year that all forms of affirmative action no longer exist in the United States?
2013? Clearly not. 2015? Hmm doubtful. Move forward a generation, so, like, 2035? Seems too soon, still. 2100 then? 2500 anyone? 3000?
What about the year 5000? If you could step into a time-machine, come out in the year 5000, and ask around, would there still be ‘affirmative action programs’ to help ‘correct the legacy of slavery’ and to help the lot of ‘other underrepresented groups’? In 15000?
How about the year 50,000 A.D.? Still? Affirmative action in college admissions, quotas/’programs’ in government hiring and contracting, all of it?
No, because that’s silly, because it’s so far in the future that everything will have changed and stuff?
Then that must mean affirmative will go away at some point. Be abolished. The last such law/policy will expire or fade out.
When, and under what circumstances, do you think that will be? What year?
I honestly cannot picture it.
