Wishing you a thoughtful MLK Day

Think about that when you are arguing for affirmative action:
Affirmative action is a policy in which an individual's color, race, sex, religion or national origin are taken into account to increase opportunities provided to an underrepresented part of society. Businesses and government entities implement affirmative action programs to increase the number of people from certain groups within companies, institutions, and other areas of society. The policy focuses on demographics who have historically had low representation in positions of leadership, professional roles, and academics. It is often considered a means of countering historical discrimination against particular groups.
Affirmative action promotes one group at the expense of another group (or groups). The very definition of affirmative action includes deliberate discrimination, which is an attempt to right an injustice by committing that same injustice.   Martin Luther King's word argue for a different approach.
