According to the AAJC affirmative action is very serious and something they continue to support. Affirmative action for Asian Americans allows anyone being discriminated against to have the proper defense system in place for restitution and fairness. The AAJC will supply any defense in public or private sectors to enable the Asian Americans to have proper representation when needed.
Furthermore the AAJC has offered many court cases nationally in the Supreme Court regarding a failure of Affirmative action for Asian Americans in the workplace, for public contracting, undergraduate admissions, law school admissions, and the issue itself.
In another study completed by Michigan State University a student showed that the abolishment of affirmative action in some universities actually helped the cause of admission for Asian Americans. Universities in Florida, California, and other states like Michigan have seen a rise in their Asian Americans attending high level education schools. It seems that the entrance to these universities like Cornell have been based not on the number of Asian Americans needed to be under the rules of affirmative action, but are based on their merit. In other words when the universities abolished the affirmative action they started taking on more Asian Americans than whites. This change is easy to see for a reason why. First the university was having to make sure they had the right amount of students in their school per race, not necessarily based on merit. As this changed the merit won out. It is well known that white students lack the motivation for top grades; where as the Asian Americans in most cases will have a GPA of 4.0 or close to it.
It is through dedication and merit that the Asian Americans have been able to increase their presence at universities. This is not always the case. We can see that in a need for affirmative action in the workplace. While there are several companies that will hire Asian Americans there are still those who refuse to pay the appropriate salary. To better help affirmative action it is necessary to have organizations like the AAJC. They enable affirmative action to be in place or at least fought for in the courts.
Affirmative action is needed in some situations. Perhaps not all as the university study is showing, but then again are universities reporting their true numbers? This is something that has needed research in the past with regards to affirmative action and making sure it is working. For now it seems that there is definitely help for the Asian community in the offering of education and job opportunities expanding.
