Subject: Afirmative action was all about putting merit aside to allow others of different races to have a better chance. When we start playing that game good people with better qualifications fall to the wayside. It's quite simple really. It's not rocket science. By the way I've had my own business for over 25 years. I never had to be personally concerned with Affirmative Action. That said I hated seeing more qualified individuals passed over just because of their nationality/race. I believe you earn your stripes with qualifications and talent and nothing else, be it pageantry or life.

In reply to: SeminoleNation 's message, "Suggestion #1 reminds me of the message board of old. Regional selections are hardly about Affirmative Action. I believe that many former Miss USA's should not have received the call on final night (speaking of Affirmative Action or quotas). I tired of seeing the same sashes compete for the crown on final night. Prior to the current owners, picking my Top 10 to get the call on final night was a breeze. I was statistically assured to get at least 30% correct just for including USA, Venezuela and India (while I would argue that Venezuela was mostly deserving of its spots, the inclusion of a few Indian delegates like Neha Dhupia made me cringe). I won't even get into the list of underserving Miss USA's. By the way, your post discharges vibes that indicate you MAY blame your personal failures in life on Affirmative Action and quotas, instead of where blame solely belongs. There is nothing sadder than someone failing to accept personal responsibility for their actions or lack thereof." on 08:58:08 12/26/18 Wed
