I believe that not only should affirmative action take into account color/ethnicity, but also socioeconomic status, political views, gender, ability/disability, geographic region, (gasp!) sexual orientation, religion, national origin, etc, and on a limited scale.
I believe that race/ethnicity should not be a factor at all. If anything, only socioeconomic class should be the factor. That way, the poor white, black, asian, and hispanic applicant can be considered on their income.
Why should a hispanic or black applicant from a wealthy family (and we know there are those) benefit, while a poor white or asian student (and there are those too) suffer because of what happened in the past?
So put me down as being vehemently against Affirmative Action.
