...discriminaci贸n positiva...


Explanation:
La explicaci贸n de Rocky es bastante buena. Lo que buscaba esa legislaci贸n era favorecer a las minor铆as 茅tnicas (discriminaci贸n positiva) para que 茅stas llegaran a alcanzar la igualdad con los grupos 茅tnicos dominantes (blancos anglosajones)...

Acci贸n Afirmativa


Explanation:
Este no es un debate, es solamente la traducci贸n exacta del tema o concepto.

No entremos en debates pol铆ticos, si es o no es positivo, lo importante es que existe.

discriminaci贸n positiva


Explanation:
La traducci贸n literal tiene una significaci贸n muy vaga en espa帽ol y no aclara en absoluto lo que significan los programas de "affirmative action", que precisamente, tienden a evitar la discriminaci贸n en todo sentido y a ampliar las posibilidades de desarrollo a grupos menos favorecidos.
Discriminaci贸n positiva, en cambio, se acerca m谩s al concepto.

discriminaci贸n positiva


Explanation:
脡ste es el t茅rmino que se utiliza en castellano al hablar de "afirmative action", al menos en la Pen铆nsula. Yo no he o铆do nunca en los medios de comunicaci贸n la traducci贸n literal "acci贸n afirmativa", y eso que los medios en Espa帽a son bastante dados a ello. Saludos.
