Thread: Proposition 107-- Ending Reverse Discrimination (Affirmative Action)

  1. #1
    http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepu...ve-action.html


    "Proposition 107 would amend the Arizona Constitution and ban preferential treatment for, or discrimination against, any individual or group on the basis of race, gender, color, ethnicity or national origin in public employment, education or contracting. The amendment would apply to the state government, counties and municipalities, special districts and public schools, universities and community colleges.

    The ban would not be retroactive and would not prohibit officials from considering qualifications based on gender when necessary for the operation of public employment, education or contracting. It also would not prohibit efforts to abide by court orders or establish eligibility for federal programs when failing to abide would result in a loss of federal funds."

    Does anyone see anything wrong with this? I don't. But yet so many people are outraged by the idea of treating all people fairly.

    It's nice to know that discrimination against minorities has been eliminated in Arizona.

    It would be as nice to know discrimination against majorities has ended as well.

    Another failed attempt to ratify thinly veiled racist BS. What's new?

    That majority will be just fine, what, with controlling through status quo, electing candidates who favor them, having the majority of resources, having a stronger networking structure in place (to get jobs)... not to mention never having to face TRUE racism.

    As opposed to the state-sanctioned version?
