[Addis Fortune] There is an aspect of the program and government policies, dubbed affirmative actions, which I do not agree. They should not be implemented, I believe, to make up for past offences and persecutions.

Affirmative action rather could be very useful if it is solely used to address current issues that concern minorities.
