Equal Employment Opportunity
Affirmative action is any policy that works to be benefit a discriminated group. Its main focus is to provide equality among all groups (“Civic Issues 4:,” 2013). It is controversial because conservatives view this as reverse racism since minorities benefit more from this. Liberals, however, believe that minorities have suffered and/or still suffering economically and educationally.
Affirmative action no longer provides benefit to the backward people. But, the laws of affirmative action is largely a thing of past and mandating this can now be retired because of the following reasons First, the objective of affirmative needs to be changed, to the discrimination on the basis of financial position, and eliminate the discrimination of the basis of caste, creed, religion or sex (CNN, 2012). It makes the people feel differently with difference treatment. Second, affirmative action needs to limited in time frame because it is now more of political issue in many countries (CNN, 2012). Third, the discrimination often creates the feeling of incompetence among the people of the discriminated group (Espenshade, 2012). It eliminates the competency of the person and declares the result on the basis of caste, sex or religion, which leads to de motivation to both. Forth, the affirmative action usually leads to stereotyping; rather equal opportunity for all should be implemented so as to create the fair climate. Hard work should be recognized and not religion (Espenshade, 2012). Lastly, it lowers the standard of accountability and leads to color blind society.
Although the affirmative action was implemented to eliminate the long discrimination in societies but it has now high time and this needs to be retired, as industriousness, ambition and opportunities are under siege suppose affirmative action is admissible (Espenshade, 2012). The whole idea behind this was to give a chance to the under privileged society but this action has been so long that the differences in society has been eliminated, and therefore the terms and conditions of the affirmative action should be eliminated from race based to the financial position.
