A MTV survey found something shocking about Millennials: 88% think affirmative action policies are unfair.  Translation: 88% of Millennials are racist, or something.  Well, at least that's probably how the folks at MSNBC will take it.

"Their unwavering belief in equality trumps all else and makes it difficult for them to support affirmative action," the study concludes.

The survey found that 88% oppose such programs because they "believe that favoring one race over another is unfair, because of their belief in equality."  Also, "90% believe that everyone should be treated the same regardless of race [and] 70% believe it's never fair to give preferential treatment to one race over another, regardless of historical inequalities. (65% for POC [people of color], 74% for White)."
