You keep bringing up affirmative action like black kids didn't once need to be escorted by the military.
The fact that we need affirmative action despite putting out high grades is a problem with the education system.
You don't (on avg)
The mean score on the math section of the SAT for all test-takers is 511 out of 800, the average scores for blacks (428) and Latinos (457) are significantly below those of whites (534) and Asians (598). The scores of black and Latino students are clustered towards the bottom of the distribution, while white scores are relatively normally distributed, and Asians are clustered at the top
On avg people like me are being pushed aside for someone who objectively scores worse than us for diversity sake.
I actually got an 800 on my Math score, is it fair for me to not get accepted to a school because they wanted that one black kid with a 700 score instead of one of thousands of asians with an 800?
(No, that's honestly likely not why I didn't get into Yale, but it might be why they waitlisted me and dragged my ass over the summer before offering me a spot at U chicago)
Affirmative action is incredibly racist and sexist
