Argument: Whites should not be punished for actions of ancestors

Issue Report: Affirmative action

Extended argument and supporting evidence

  • Affirmative action opponents also typically argue that those who suffer on account of affirmative action (ie. those who don’t get the job or who don’t get admitted to a particular university) should not be held accountable for crimes they did not commit; in other words, that most people of the present were not a part of the system that oppressed such minorities.
