Racism on the Ballot

Well, it's finally official, the Michigan Supreme Court turned down the appeal to a lawsuit brought on by the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) to stop the anti-racist Michigan Civil Rights Initiative from appearing on the ballot in November.

It comes down to this - the MCRI will prohibit any unit of government in Michigan from engaging in racist hiring, bidding, and admissions. It's as simple as that. Anyone who opposes MCRI implicitly agrees that racism is acceptable.

    1. So Dick DeVos supports racism since he opposes the MCRI?

    2. He opposes it because he politically can't support it. Is he a racist? Probably not, he just can't come out and say that he opposes racism in government contracts and hiring and still have a shot at the governorship.
