Education and a strong work ethic has no color
When will affirmative action go away? Like the unions, it served its purpose, but with millions looking for jobs, don’t we want the most qualified?
It’s time the color of one’s skin and quotas gets tossed. Need a doctor? Plumber? Police officer? Qualifications and experience should be the only focus.
Yet, politicians, celebrities, and “the others” stoke the fires. The focus on skin color is a distraction. Teaching the value of work, doing the right thing and getting the best education needs to be the focus.
Parents need to get mad if their child isn’t getting a good education. Stupid shouldn’t get a person hired, nor should quotas or the color of one’s skin. If someone is willing to work hard to be the best at what he or she is capable, hire that person. No one is entitled, but everyone needs to graduate high school and work.
Parents continue, or begin, to teach children a solid work ethic; have them make their beds, wash dishes, rake leaves, or get a part time job. Serve as a role model, and make sure your child is getting a solid education. An education or a lack of one is the biggest discrimination factor. Those who cannot communicate, think, respect work-- all will lose when affirmative action ends. Victimization, entitlements and excuses wear thin on those who pay for lazy and stupid.
Rather than focus on skin color, focus on education. The choice to learn, work, and improve on one’s life, goes beyond the color of one’s skin.
