This might be surprising but there are group or faction in the African American community. A Conservative-Libertarian faction that doesn't believe in affirmative action and if anything would. Like to see it repealed even though millions of African Americans have benefited from it and professor Thomas Sowell is one of them. They are against Affirmative Action because they see it as two forms of racism even though its designed to benefit groups of people who have. Been left out because of racial reasons or the lack of opportunities when it comes to education and economic development. And the reason for this has to do with the fact that they see affirmative action as racist but for a couple of reasons. One that denies Caucasians access to economic opportunity because of their race and that already too many Caucasians have access to. That opportunity and that the employer or whatever needs to be more diversified under law.
The other reason why some African Americans see affirmative action as racist because they believe that Progressives. Caucasian, African American and others view African Americans as secretively inferior to Caucasians and Asians and need special treatment. To be successful in life and basically see affirmative action as insulting towards African Americans and another. Form of government dependence rather then African Americans having the same freedom to be able to live and run their own lives. The same freedom that Caucasians and Asians have in America.
