"The term affirmative action refers to policies that take gender, race, or ethnicity into account in an attempt to promote equal opportunity. The focus of such policies ranges from employment and public contracting to educational outreach and health programs."

Affirmative action is also referred to as "reverse discrimination" and "positive discrimination"

define:affirmative action
-he term affirmative action describes policies aimed at a historically socio-politically non-dominant group
-Specific actions in recruitment, hiring, upgrading and other areas designed and taken for the purpose of eliminating the present effects of past discrimination, or to prevent discrimination.


I would gladly enforce it, OP i see no reason on why it would be "bias and discrimination itself"
