Why do poor whites complain about affirmative action instead of going to college?

The last time I checked, community colleges don’t have affirmative action.

    Because we want MORE FREE FOOD STAMPS, MORE AFFIRMATIVE action to give us jobs even though we are not as qualified as the Black guy down by the RR TRACKS is, 

    WE want more Freedom to say it's racist to call us anything except a WHITE PERSON... etc... etc... 

    WE WANT MORE FREEBIES from the Government so we do not need to get more educated and work for what we get.

  • because white people are the laziest people on earth

      @prouddeplorable America was built on slave labor. Majority of European countries were shitholes before America outsourced there. An please don’t use the it was “1% all Jews” because the same thing happened in South Africa

    It's not only poor whites. In fact, some of the schools that give the biggest advantages based on skin color are ivy league colleges, law schools, and medical schools. These are some of the top students that are coming forward with issues about the policy as top students with better grades and test scores are being denied because of the color of their skin to make room for students who are part of minority races who have lower GPAs and test scores but have a more desirable skin color. Whenever a learning institution is saturated with applications, affirmative action leads to people being denied based on the color of their skin as accepting someone with lower stats based on their race,also means denying someone with better stats based on their race. This literally fits the definition of racial discrimination.

    Also it is not only white students who have issues with the racial discrimination caused by affirmative action. Asian applicants actually have a much harder time getting accepted with the average scores needed to have a good chance at acceptance being at levels multiple standard deviations above those of minority race. Another problem of Affirmative Action is that these Asian applicants are all usually grouped together regardless of where they are from. The American daughter of a rich Chinese businessman is treated the same as the son of an immigrant from Laos who is the first in his family to even get a high-school education. Asia is a massive continent with a wide range of diversity but people from all parts of it are lumped together and put at a disadvantage because "we already have enough of them".

      Again, statistically Asians need much higher stats than any other race to be accepted. At the levels that the majority of other races are accepted (aka over 50%), Asians are often only accepted at avg rates of 5% or less. Again just because something is legal doesn't mean it isn't morally bankrupt.

    The answer is obvious.  They're too intellectually stunted and undisciplined (by choice) to succeed in post-secondary education.  And they know it.  Of course, they've heard that to find a job in today's market, they must have a college degree, and be able to do math and read with comprehension.  Trump supporters know they can't do any of that.   So they fall further and further behind, blaming non-whites and "immigrants" for their own failings in life and bad choices.

    Affirmative action requires high taxes, which in turn requires that we remain poor--and therefore unable to go to college.

    Affirmative Action is a myth. Racist whites in power still sneakily discriminate against us, including refusing to interview someone for an ethnic-sounding name, etc. I've been rejected from many jobs I qualified for, so Affirmative Action is a myth!!!
