All Woke Up: Liberals’ racial preference plan

Empower Wisconsin | May 19, 2020

The painfully woke are not above using a pandemic to push through their liberal agenda. 

Such is the case in California, where liberals are using the cover of COVID-19 to pass a bill to undercut voters’ wishes and bring back racial preferences in public college admissions.   

As the College Fix reports, the proposal would resurrect affirmative action after a 24-year absence and six years after Asian-American activists beat back an attempt to specifically exempt college admissions from the preference ban.

Proposition 209, approved by ballot initiative in 1996, deemed it illegal for state government institutions to discriminate on the grounds of race, sex and ethnicity in employment, contracting and education.    

Washington state voters in November rejected a similar law approved by their liberal Legislature.
