Affirmative action is the racist belief that either those who are not white males are inferior and can not be judged by the same standards as white men, or that those in a group discriminated in the past somehow deserve special treatment now by discriminating against white males.

This is done in college scholarships and hiring for jobs, where instead of the most qualified person with the best test scores being selected, someone else can be given it based on race or gender.
