Affirmative Action is needed in America. Affirmative Action is simply providing the minority with an opportunity as the majority. When considering a school admittance or job placement, the first thing the applicant is before discussing race or gender is qualified. Affirmative Action helped America moved forward and we have Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas or Republican Leslie Sanchez as proof of the forward thinking. Regardless if they don’t think Affirmative Action didn’t play a role in their lives.
