If Obama becomes President, blacks will have reached the top job in the country. Why should we continue affirmative action as it is today? I don't have a problem with affirmative action, I just believe it should not be based on race. If you serve time in the military, you should receive the benefits of affirmative action. The current system would benefit Obama's daughters, but discriminates against a poor white boy. If affirmative action benefits went to people who served in the military, race and gender would be off the table. All people would be treated equally.
