Reverse Discrimination

Do you believe that reverse discrimination is possible? When I was younger, I thought that everything should be judged on its merits, but age has taught me that “merit” is as fluid a concept as one can imagine, and that it hinges on so many other variables as to render it completely meaningless. So I’m curious, how many of you believe that reverse discrimination is both possible and harmful, and if so, under what circumstances? Have you, personally, ever been harmed by reverse discrimination? Have you ever benefited from it? And when, if ever, is diversity more important than merit? When isn’t it?
