    I disagree with affermative action. I don't think that it's fair for someone to be admitted to a university because of race and not academics. Individual admission should me based on merits.

    That's terrible to think that such things still go on. I agree that it should be ended.

    It doesn't seem right to stop discriminating against one race and start discriminating against another.

    Ofcourse people should not be admitted according to their race, especially in universities, because it's a place for knowledge, and sciences.
