Michigan Civil Rights Initiative

I don't understand why people are against this. The left wing liberal pansy academic types opponents complain that it's going to allow schools to ban blacks, hispanics, and native americans as well as allowing the government to only choose white owned companies.
Apparently these left wing idiots have been taught by some of these teachers who got admitted as a result of affirmative action, not the folks who didn't get in but would have been better candidates.
The best candidate is accepted, regardless of race. Isn't that what Martin Luther King wanted?
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I know that some of the folks who are against this like to bastardize Reverend King's position and say he was for affirmative action, but if you actually look at what he says, you know that's just a lie.

In addition, if you look at California, who passed proposition 209 ten years ago, which was worded almost exactly the same as the Michigan proposal, you will see that there was no negative effect from the passage of that law. In fact, hispanic and black owned businesses grew at a faster rate than white owned businesses. Coincidence? Doubtful.
