My argument paper will be on affirmative action. I am going to be agreeing with affirmative action. I will be using three sources found on the Joyner library website.one of those sources will definitely be a print source because my grade is depending on it. I figured it would be easier to agree to affirmative action because when people feel very strongly about something they tend to write more about it. The government is involved with affirmative action, so anything they have to deal with has a lot of paper work attached to it. Another reason I chose to agree with it is because the statistics on it have changed dramatically throughout the years. The percentage of how many white student take up in a public school has already dropped, meaning there will be information on that and reasoning behind it.So while writing this paper will have more than enough information to use. The last reason I agree with affirmative action is because I am a part of a minority. Being a part of a minority has its perks, especially affirmative action. Affirmative action gives minorities a chance to get somewhere. They are given an opportunity to break the cycle of their family if they play the cards right. For some, breaking the cycle of their family means that they are going to step up to a lower middle class when they receive a job once they accomplish college. Going to college is even big for minority families. Not every family has college in mind for their children, so when they do get a chance to go, it feels like a once in a lifetime chance. Another upside to affirmative action is that the world can actually have smart people developing that would have never had a chance to be the best they can be. How does the world know what people are capable of if chance s are not given. Some may waste their time but others will actually strive to be something. My argument paper will be on how affirmative action gives chances and strives to increase diversity among everyone.
