See Students Try to Explain Why They Support Affirmative Action…But Not in Sports

It’s definitely worth the four and a half minutes to see the students say they support affirmative action, but then stumble and fumble as they try to explain why “skill” should be the deciding factor, not race, and that using affirmative action in sports is just “different:”
From the video’s description:
Many students support affirmative action, in an effort to promote diversity. They argue that race-based preferences “level the playing field” for disadvantaged minorities. However, these same students refused to sign our petition to apply such policies to the basketball team. At UC Riverside — where the video was filmed — 10/11 active players on the team are African American. Why not use affirmative action to promote diversity there?

Isn't it wild how students have such a hard time standing by their liberal beliefs when they are the ones that have to give up something for another? It's as if these kids have been brainwashed into thinking the way they do. They have never been challenged to think through the liberal ideology. These students have been indoctrinated into the liberal belief system. Wouldn't it be great to start asking these students to think a little about what they have been taught? This is why parents and grandparents need to think twice about sending their children to government run schools. We the parents are in charge of our children's education. And we all know what the cost of public government "free" education is. It's a failure.


  1. This is really good - I hope it made them think. It really points out what affirmative action is about.

  2. What a complete joke. What a totally third grade look at a complicated issue.

    Sports has nothing to do with affirmative action in college admissions or jobs. Complete apples to oranges.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
