Isn't affirmative action just legalized, blatant racism against white people?
White man scores 100. Black man scores 70. So we give the job to the black man. What's next, will the government give people a ten dollar bill every time they spit into a white person's eye while walking down the street? Or maybe the government will begin to put white people into concentration camps everytime they do something good for science or humanity. Because after all, everytime a white person does something good it's just beause they are holding the black man down.

I'm completely against affirmative action but you should consider the socioeconomic disparity that still exists between the races, us only being three generations past the Civil Rights movement.

It definitely is racism. Nobody should look at skin color in hiring, college admissions, etc. The only issue should be capability.

Yes. I understand why it came about & perhaps it was a necessity of the time (being the lesser evil).

I think you're overreacting. It only covers government employees and all it is a quota. It also applies to women.
