The paper reveals the perception that affirmative action policies and practices are biased and thus are doing more harm than good. The paper discusses how discriminatory policies and procedures need to be eliminated but contends that proactive measures need to be put into place instead of the affirmative action laws that we have today. The paper concludes with the hope that every person will be treated fairly and equally in respect to everyone else.

From the Paper:

"Social inequality has been seen throughout history in the areas of gender, race, ethnicity and social economic class. Tremendous progress has been made in trying to make people aware that such group based inequality is wrong. Social policy has been the key to eliminating these inequalities. Affirmative action policies throughout the years have been put into place to eliminate differential treatment based on the basis of group membership. They have also had the goal of proactively improving the status of certain target groups. There has been an assumption that good intentions are not enough to ensure equality representation and status (Iyer, 2007)."
