California voters will soon be weighing in on the latest version of affirmative action in the state: Proposition 16.
Proposition 16 repeals Proposition 209.
What happened when California banned affirmative action in 1996?
While affirmative action was in place, Black students made up 5% of the UC system.
Opponents of Proposition 16 argue that affirmative action is another form of discrimination, taking opportunities away from deserving individuals to reward less-qualified candidates.
