Great place for demographics on race, employment and education in America:

Study the numbers and you'll notice some interesting things

White women has benefitted the most from affirmative action in terms of employment while white men have benefitted the least... in fact their employment rate dropped 5%... from nearly 97% to 92% in 1996. Yet most conservatives make AA a race issue. That's funny bc the numbers show that a white male has more competition from white females than supposedly unqualified blacks.

Remember this if you ever hear a white women complain about AA. They have the most to lose since they've gained the most.

The numbers are similar for education/ Though the study doesn't specifically earmark the last 30 years as being affirmative action years, the study does show that "reverse discrimination" some whites complain about is unlikely and not supported by facts.
