Description:

The paper presents the belief that society stands to benefit from affirmative action. The paper looks at works that decry how affirmative action in society is often misrepresented as reverse discrimination and how affirmative action is associated with negative stereotyping. The paper points out, however, that while affirmative action is a noble undertaking, some onus also lies on the black leadership in the United States to inspire people to pursue education and career goals that are more in keeping with the economies of modern times.
