Re Proposition 107: Vote YES! It will simply ban discrimination and preferences on the basis of race, ethnicity, and sex in state and local government contracting, employment, and education (including university admissions). The playing field may not be level, but that's no reason to add in more discrimination and preference. I understand that an employment, contracting, or educational program might be designed to help disadvantaged individuals or new companies or first-generation college students -- but those folks come in all colors and both sexes, so these programs should be open without regard to race, ethnicity, or sex. Proposition 107 would not end these programs, but it would require that they be open without regard to skin color, what country your ancestors came from, or your gender. That makes sense! Oct 13, 2010
