I believe that at one point in time, affirmative action was necessary. People of different races were not being hired because of their races, and something needed to be done in order to ensure them a fair chance at a job. I'm not sure if it is necessary today. I know that racism still exists, but it is not as rampant as it once was, not by far (even though it is currently being portrayed that way). Sometimes, affirmative action takes jobs away from others who deserve them all so that a quota can be met. I don't think that is very fair.
