That seems a not unreasonable position to me. There are still racial opportunity gaps which need to be bridged (and the racial attitudes in America which cause so many to accept or even glory in them), but there also is something inherently unappetizing about continuing race-based affirmative action -- one can't have a color blind government/judicial system with them in place. I don't worry too much about the warping effect of race-based affirmative action, as long as our government and justice systems treat people of color worse than they treat whites.
Still, my preference for government programs is for color-blind programs which provide affirmative action based upon economic inequality and those which provide minimum floors to all citizens. One of the most serious areas of inequality is in educational opportunity. This should be addressed by at least equalizing $ spending/pupil and preferably providing districts with additional help if they have large numbers of students whose primary language is not English, who live in poverty households (or on the street), or who are special education students. At present, the large and small city population of students have greater needs than their suburban counterparts, but often have only 60% of the per pupil financial resources of wealthy suburban districts. This is certainly true in my small city of a little over a hundred thousand population.
Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Obamacare are examples of government programs which put a safety net floor under our people. I also like programs like the EITC, which provides income support to workers in preference to the huge number of individual discrete programs we have today.
We also won't crack the problem until police and courts treat all people with equal respect. We built our drug laws in Congress to disadvantage minorities. Marijuana was originally made a serious drug because at the time it was used more by minorities. Same with enhanced penalties for crack vs cocaine. Even for the same crime, sentences are disproportionate. Programs, like stop-and-frisk, which have had a small influence in reducing crime introduce a daily irritant between the police and poor minority communities. It is tough to live a normal life when constantly subjected to stop and frisk, or on whites calling the police against blacks for simply going about their lives in a location where the particular white doesn't wish to see them. A history of segregated housing has led many whites to feel entitled to live in an all white neighborhood and to view any person of color as a likely criminal invader.'
One reason to justify government run affirmative action is the long history of goverment action to exclude persons of color from government help programs from which whites benefitted.
I find it sad that we still have man of the exact same problems today as we did 50-odd years ago, when I was a young man.
