Arda Demir & Lea Tawakkul ho English-Frau Ernaut Affirmative Action 1.) Sum up the line of arguments in the text. (Julia Rubin - Lea Tawakkul) n - Lea T 03/27/2021 The argumentative newspaper article ,,Should Affirmative Action be scrapped?" partly written by Julia Rubin, thematizes the important role of affirmative action and how discrimination continues to deny opportunities to minorities if affirmative action would be scrapped. I will enlarge upon this in the following. The first aspect mentioned is, that affirmative action is truly necessary to grow economic equality since it prevails economic inequality. Adding to that, the particular reason for these circumstances is historic discrimination and, the fact that they hinder immense opportunities, especially for minorities. Another aspect to mention is, that it helps disadvantaged people who come from areas of the country where there are not very many opportunities, but the affirmative action polity has its aim to advance that kind of people where they otherwise had not got the chance. In other words, affirmative action gives everyone an equal playing field. Moreover, it is also stressed in the text that, a financially disadvantaged black student who works hard to become the best could be passed over by a rich superior student who is not putting much effort at all. Besides, the wealthier attend better schools and have...

access to better living conditions, because they don't have to help their families financially. Furthermore, without affirmative action, factors along the lines of race and ethnicity would aggravate. Also, affirmative action has drawn people to areas of work and study that they may never consider otherwise, for example, women going into technology fields, men into nursing, or minorities into the best schools. Furthermore, this licy has its aim to make sure that diversity is achieved in workplaces and schools, helping create tolerant communities as individuals are in contact with various ideas and cultures. To sum up, everything that has been stated so far, Julia Rubin demonstrates the positive sides of the affirmative action policy. She strongly believes, that affirmative action has helped disadvantaged people coming from other parts of the country, where there are not very many opportunities. Simply put, the policy gives everyone an equal playing field. Arda Demir & Lea Tawakkul English-Frau Ernaut 03/27/2021 2.) Analyse the means the author uses in order to convey his/her message. (Julia Rubin - Lea Tawakkul) In the argumentative article ,,Should Affirmative Action be scrapped?" the author conveys his main message by using multiple stylistic devices. Besides that, I hypothesize that the use of evidence and detailed information leads him to change the mindsets of the readers and to pursue them to understand the ongoing problem. I will enlarge upon this in the following. The first aspect to mention is, that Linda uses many stylistic devices, such as personal pronouns, to immediately address the readers and to attract their attention. Regarding that, the author gives the readers the feeling of community by addressing them with the usage of personal pronouns. "{Some people argue} that we do not (...)(1.70)" The result of starting the first sentence with personal pronouns is, that the author invites the reader to feel compassion and creates a feeling of a community. Adding a point, the variety of paragraphs leads the readers to take a quick break to profoundly think what the author meant and what his message is. This method leads the readers to understand the opinion of Linda more and to make up their minds what their next move would be. Moreover, the author uses no short forms, to be on the same wavelength as the reader, so the reader does not sense the feeling that the author is superior. Therefore, the author wants to communicate with the reader, without building a wall between the reader and the author, as an anonymous person. Furthermore, the author used many percentage statistics, which therefore shows the reader, that the author used evidence and detailed information, to change the mindsets of the readers and to pursue them to understand the significant issue. Taking all aspects into consideration, Julia conveys her main message, by using multiple stylistic devices and has now a massive impact on the mindsets of the readers. Also, she definitely pursues the readers to understand the crucial issue and guides them to spread awareness, as well as to take action. Besides that, she fully achieves to state her own opinion and gives the readers the feeling of a community. These factors lead her to connect with the readers and to feel empathy such as sympathy for the people dealing with the current situation. Arda Demir & Lea Tawakkul 3.) Discuss the statement: English-Frau Ernaut 03/27/2021 "AA is the attempt to deal with malignant racism by instituting benign racism." (Elliott Larson) In the ensuing, I'm going to discuss the statement above. The task calls for clarifying the unfavorable and favorable features of affirmative action and to search for valid reasons, why dealing with vicious racism through benign racism, is whether a miscalculation or judicious. First, let me start with an unlikeable argument against affirmative action. Affirmative action can also have dire consequences, like destroying the idea of a meritocracy. One of the models is if only the rich are admitted to the university. Besides, that Affirmative action reinforces stereotypes and racism because of the previous point. People who are given a position purely because of affirmative action often are not qualified, and the idea that all people of that race must be "stupid" is perpetuated. Also, it presupposes that all people of the same skin color are from the lower class, and therefore need help. This particularly makes clear, that reinforce stereotypes and even embeds them permanently into the system. Moreover, Affirmative action is a way to ensure that diversity is obtained and maintained in schools and the workplace. In so doing it also helps create tolerant communities because it exposes people to a variety of cultures and ideas that are different from their own. The purpose of taking affirmative action is to improve the situation of ethnically concentrated minorities. Besides, Affirmative action seeks to overturn historical trends of discrimination against an individual's identity by assisting groups identified as subject to past or present discrimination. Ultimately, it can be said that racist prejudice or rather affirmative action has its major drawbacks. I assess that affirmative action could affect the lives of groups of different kinds of people. But on the other hand, it would be great compensation for all of the terrible things that have happened to lower racial concentrations through a white supremacy model. When affirmative action occurs, they have a greater impact on the mindsets of the government. Because of that, Larson's articulation shows that prejudice can also be "acceptable". So I think the claim has its train of thought. Lea
