These next words are painful; and I *do* believe in the idea of affirmative action- however, the current method and application of Affirmative has very mixed results. Forcing the break down of the walls of segregation and bigotry, discrimination and racism, etc. is itself a forced discrimination which I have seen many take advantage of to creating mediocrity through entitlement. There are those skating through on the…
