Examples of Affirmative Action
Barack Obama on Affirmative Action
Conclusion Thesis Statement "Affirmative action has tainted the recruiting process because recruiters focus primarily on recruiting applicants from underrepresented groups instead of on those most qualified for the job or university." Outline HOW DOES IT WORKS? WHAT IS AFFIRMATIVE ACTION? WHO BENEFITS?? WHERE DID IT COME FROM? In its original form, Affirmative Action has assisted underrepresented individuals compete in a field they were long not considered to participate in. It is unfortunate that affirmative action has been watered down to what is perceived to be an "easy pass" for minorities, but as we all know, you have to take the good with the bad. Affirmative action is absolutely neccesary. QUESTIONS????? The New Haven 20 Case: US Supreme Court ruled in favor of 20 Firemen who were not promoted because test results were
thrown out due to lack of minorities passing. Women Vs. Wal-Mart Case: Over 1.5 million women came together and filed a class action suit against Wal-Mart for gender discrimination. The Jareau Hall Struggle Case: Jareau Hall was recruited to attend Colgate University with low SAT scores. He struggled tremendously and was labeled "the kid who got in because of affirmative action." Recommendations Give all individuals fair consideration when making hiring, promotion and admittance decisions.
