qualified white males were turned down for the position solely due to their race

Isn't that exactly what Affirmative Action says should happen?

No, you see, Affirmative Action states that you should use merit and credentials to hire someone, except you have to take into account race and gender, but you shouldnt use it to judge a person. I think Silicon Valley, the show, managed to capture it quire well

so if you're hiring four people, 10 people apply, 6 white, 2 black and 2 indian, you have to hire let's say 2 whites a black and an indian by affirmative action. If it went straight merit, there's a real chance that the four top qualified out of the ten would be all white but you can't hire them because das raycis. So, they are being discriminated against based on race.

except you have to take into account race

This is racial discrimination

but you shouldnt use it to judge a person


I think people should be able to hire whomever they wish, but the idea they are FORCED to hire inferior non whites, as in discriminate against whites, insane.

they add 230 points to black sat scores, 185 to brown.

non-white only grants, loans and scholarships.

The system is aims to exterminate whites.

In practice affirmative action is literally the opposite of merit and credentials.
