My message: End affirmative action quotas

Dear future president,

As a Filipino immigrant striving to attend a well-educating university next fall, I observed that there are existing quotas regarding universities for certain races. For example, Pepperdine University is more in favor of offering scholarships to students graduating from black-affiliated high schools. Due to affirmative action, they have a better chance to get admitted than I do. With that being said, this is a form of reverse-discrimination that multipotentialite minorities like me undergo. Therefore, future president, I hope that future America extends equality to hardworking students who deserve a better chance on good education–not based on race.
