    So then why did you ask your question? Let's have a merit based system and scrap racial quotas.

    You asked a question but you appear to agree with the opponents race based of affirmative action. You've answered your own question then.

    Losing economicaly, academically etc. to whites? Yes, the losers demand race based affirmative action. Glad you agree they are wrong.

    The stats are what they are and political support for affirmative action is heavy amongst it's primary beneficiaries. Why is it that $#@!es support these policies but get pissy when people call them out on it?
