I think the majority of employers would hire the most qualified candidate.

So true.

I want to add that if affirmative action should be done away with both black and white men would be able to get jobs that they can't get now since black women and white women come first because of the fool rule.

Employers would be able to actually hire who they want to, which is the way it should work in small businesses. When it comes to large corporations then I feel that each individual should be considered in a manner that removes all aspects of race/sex/ethnicity/etc. so that the person selected for the job is hired purely for their merit.

But hey, as long as I am dreaming maybe I can be 10 years younger, have the national debt paid off, and finally own that 1969 Camaro SS I always wanted.
