Maybe supporters of Affirmative Action in general and California specifically needs to spend more time keeping blacks already in their colleges from dropping out at disproportionately rates to both other races and in comparison to other peer colleges. IMHO, it's pretty fucked up that you are keen to admit blacks to make your racial makeup numbers look good, but don't give a shit if they stick around to get their diploma or not.While Affirmative Action is imperfect due to the fact that it requires gender, race, or other qualities to be a factor, it's still somewhat necessary. Look at the GOP for example and the current candidates. If it were up to them and Affirmative Action didn't exist, then many things that only affect certain races would take place. Look at Santorum that doesn't want women to have proper access to their own reproductive decisions. Or Gingrich who thinks speaking Spanish means you live in a ghetto. Or Romney who thinks the very poor are doing just fine. Or Ron Paul who has many questionable ties to very racist groups and people.
You hate Affirmative Action for what it does. Unfortunately it's due to people with your mindset (from your posting history) that makes there be a NEED for Affirmative Action. Sadly, it's a biased law that's required to counteract biased actions of mostly conservative mindset douchebags who think that minorities, women, and homosexuals deserve to be treated as less of human beings than other people.
