I support the need to bring racial equity and fairness to our California society.
It would reverse Proposition 209, the state’s prohibition on affirmative action, which voters approved in 1996.
Proposition 209 outlawed the use of race or gender as one of many factors in consideration of admitting students at California public universities.
Well-managed affirmative action programs do not guarantee any numerical quota or make a decision based solely on race or gender.
Those espousing affirmative action as being a quota system are deliberately misconstruing the facts of such programs and must be called out.
