Assemblyman Mark Stone and Dr. Shirley Weber District 79 seek to kill the golden goose, Proposition 209, by passage of ACA 5 which, if passed, brings back the corrupt policies of “affirmative action”.
Dr. Weber talks the talk that CA needs””opportunity for all” but Dr. Weber walks the walk that women and persons of color are those needing the opportunity and that quotas of “affirmative action” can deliver.
Read Dr. Weber’s Sample Letter which she wants you to sign and send back to her. The phrase “women and persons of color” are the persons Dr. Weber actually seeks to assist.
Under the cover of media attention focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and the riots, the Democrats seek swift passage of ACA 5 through the CA state legislature so ACA 5 will be on the ballot in November.
Why is the golden goose — Proposition 209– so golden? Proposition 209, passed in 1996, made it illegal to use race as basis for decisions as to who got into CA state universities, who got contracts and who was hired for public jobs. CA has been “color-blind” and the golden state has benefited enormously.
ACA 5 supporters seek to bring back “affirmative action” to CA. Why bring back the old, racist policies of “affirmative action” that use skin color as basis for decisions? Why, given that Proposition has been is a success story why replace it with failed policies?
The numbers clearly show that — because of Proposition 209 — more minorities attend Univ. of CA state schools and very important more graduate. Because of Proposition 209 students are better matched with colleges and thereby better able to succeed.
Recently returning to CA, Ward Connerly allies in 2020 with Asian Americans against race discrimination. Tenty-five years ago Ward Connerly as a member of the University of California’s Board of Regents got an inside look at the “corruption” affirmative action introduces. Connerly launched Proposition 209.
Mark Stone represents Santa Cruz CA and areas near by. Let’s get Mr. Stone on the KSCO 1080 radio so he can answer questions about “affirmative action” and why he thinks it’s time to kill the goose Proposition 209 that gives the golden eggs of thousands of success stories wherein students matched better with colleges succeed and graduate from schools in far greater numbers than before Proposition 209. Why bring back the old quota system? Is this really the way forward for “women and persons of color” to succeed?
