  • the psychological impact of being treated differently to gain entrance to school, pass an exam, or be hired for a job, and the stigma of being labeled as only being somewhere due to AA and not due to skill or knowledge

  • I think NP's con is one you should really focus on if your doing pro.

    I agree with AA, enough that i took part in a demonstration supporting in in college but i think NP's arguement is an excellent one.
