seems to be giving some an easy way out and others a firewall that can be difficult to get through. I don’t think that is healthy for either party involved. Affirmative Action has truly become a form of reverse discrimination. I really believe that there are other ways to conquer these problems. Society needs to work towards broad based economic policies like public investment, national health reform, an enlarged income tax credit, child support assurance, and other policies benefiting families with young children. Widely supported programs that promote the interests of both lower and middle class Americans that deliver benefits to Minorities and Whites on the basis of their economic status, and not their race or ethnicity, will do more to reduce Minority poverty than the

current, narrowly based, poorly supported policies that single out Minority groups. However, if this, or another remedy is not taken sometime in the near future, and Affirmative Action continues to separate Minority groups from Whites, we can be sure to see racial tension reach points that our history has never seen.
