In this day and age, why does anyone need to have special considerations because of their ethnic group or color. I believe that the next person beside me is equal to me, therefore, I do not believe that anyone should receive special consideration for assistance based on any ethnicity. There are financial aid programs out there if assistance is needed with paying for school. You may have to get a student loan, like the rest of us, that will have to be paid back when you finish school. As far as the Affirmative Action, it may have once had a place to assist people of minority groups to receive equal opportunities, but in this day and age, I believe that people of minorities should be outraged that people would consider that they need special assistance to succeed because of their race. Work for it. There is nothing stopping you, especially not your skin color.
