"It does noting but inspire division and resentment. Well, it also prevents its beneficiaries from doing anything to better themselves, since they don’t have to.

If you need affirmative action, you aren’t good enough; if you if you are good enough, you don’t need it; and if you take it anyway, you are a freeloader."
