Prop 209 doesn’t ban Affirmative Action, it only bans race based preferential treatments by government.
Prop 16 is not Affirmative Action, it only removes the ban on race based preferential treatments by government. we already have need based aid programs to help the underprivileged, if race gets into play , the only newly added beneficiaries will be the rich people on certain ethnicity groups, and that will not be a fair situation for all the rest! Watch this real life sharing:
because i am not a racist
i am a white male with neurological disabilities who will suffer from prop16 and so will others with neurological disabilites who arent part of the group being promoted by prop16. Prop16 promotes the idea of hiring,admitting or promoting african americans,lations and women who have no adversities whatsoever over those with disabilities who arent part of that group. i find this higly offensive and disturbing as a white male who had 3 brain surgeries and was born with a brain tumor that an african american,latino or woman would be hired and promoted over me with no actual hardships of their own. Vote NO ON PROP16
While the ballet wording is intended to be confusing, Prop209 is the one that prevents discrimination and #prop16 is pro discrimination.
Prop16 fundamentally rejects the American creed of equal opportunity. The government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers in the distribution of opportunities. Vote No on prop16.
