Individual vs group rights again, eh? An individual's right to not be discriminated against is less important than a group's right to receive reparation for past discrimination. Thats the crux of the issue as presented to the Supreme Court (usually) and I am confident that the Supreme will reject that arguement as it has all previous arguements along the same lines.Originally posted by Zero
Hmmm...depends on the situation. See, we try to balance things, and some have to sacrifice for the common good. Sacrifice, however, is something that people hate more than anything.
Affirmative Action is unconstitutional for that exct reason.
They try to avoid making that arguement by stating the goal of "diversity" and avoiding the whole discrimination issue altogether. But thats not why affirmative action was implimented and that is why AA is pretty much always rejected in court.
