AA didn't work, and neither did busing which puts to burden on the race, more than the environment.
AA is also reverse discrimination because it takes away a job from a qualified person, and gives it to a lesser, and even unqualified person.
As long as achievement and performance are the criteria for selecting candidates, the cutting in line is not valid.
It is a reflection of our education system that so many people in minority classes fail to achieve satisfactory performance and achievement. Consider that out of the same ghetto comes a criminal as well as a police officer, or congress person.
One has to look to the Blacks themselves to see where They Fail, and compare it to where the system fails everyone. For example, if a classroom of students ALL Fail, and the students are diversified then we have to look as the Teacher, and or the system to see why they failed.
All the immigrants from the last century went through the same public education system, and whether it was bad, or good, they adapted to it, They made it work for them. Many of them had a language barrier as well, while this is not true of the American Blacks.
AA would be the acceptance that our education system is a failure, and one shouldn't rule that out. The education system today in the US is in chaos, and the core concept isn't really working.
To me, the purpose of an education is to get the best job possible to support yourself and your family. Education just to explore knowledge should be done after the primary goal of making a living has been fulfilled.
K-12 should be changed to capture what is now the first two years of college. College for most degrees should be only two years, and it should be focused on the major, while any basic prerequisite should have been completed during high school. This paradigm for education doesn't exist today, but that is my suggestion.
Today, unlike when AA was first introduced last century, media technology didn't exist. Now, today it is being used even by toddlers. Focus should be away from social media, and an educational media should be developed to educate along side the classroom.
There are many more subjects today, and more new information in many of the existing subjects that mean the pace of learning has to be increased. So, if the AA candidate had trouble last century competing with performance and achievement they have a real problem today. But, putting them in a line they don't qualify for is not the answe
