The Racial Privacy Initiative Ward Connerly's latest dastardly scheme to "colorblind" the nation has not been supported by the UC Regents. This is particularly important because in the dismantling of Affrimative Action in California's higher education system, the Regents backed the decision to eliminate the use of race as a factor. The associated press reports that the UC Regents voted 15-3 , with one abstenum not to support the RPI. Visit Ward's site and carefully read his proposition and the language. Notice where it is permissible to use race. Okay, I can't trust you all to read it, you can use racial classification in, "law enforcement descriptions; prisoner and undercover assignments." Ah, don't you just love the "freedom" from race, except in criminal matters?
