According to dictionary.com, the definition of the word racism is:

rac·ism  
n.
1.)The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2.)Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

Affirmative Action is both of these things. It concludes that white people have superior ability to minorities and thus the only way that minorities can have a "fair" chance is by getting special treatment simply because of their race. This is also discrimination to white people, which is outlined in the second part of the definition. Hiring an employee or accepting a student to a school should be based on their talents, character, and GPA. Of course racism exists. That is unfortunate. But to put it into law is simply wrong. If people want equality, they need to be prepared to fail equally.

Couldn't agree more. The Civil Rights Movement was all about proving that people are not, first and foremost, the color of their skin. Affirmative action all boils down to giving people special consideration based on their race. I, for one, refuse to accept it just because it's the majority being discriminated against in this case. Racism is racism, any way you slice it.
