Affirmative Action, Again, is not fundamentally wrong. Every person is different, everyone benefit from different things. Even basic needs like medicine and education can be very different from one person to the next. As we advance our understanding of ourselves and advance our technologies, it seems the only path forward is towards more individualized care and individualized education. I mean, until we reach full comprehension of the/an omniscient and omnipotent God like some people believe they have, we can’t know everything and there is no way for a single human engineered system to work for everyone. Everyone is special, and every live matter.
However, in our present American Democracy have established that race based preference is wrong. Doing something WRONG in the name of racial equality is dangerous for future endeavors for racial equality. There exist great disparity in quality of life for different races of people in America. There is a lot of work to do to get where we want to go. If we destroy our faith for this righteous dream of equality by engineering artificial inequalities based on race, there will be true inequality among us for ever thereafter.
We should commit ourselves to work to make everyone’s live better and matter more. But we should not do so based on race.
