Earlier this month, the Michigan GOP said it would not come out in support of Ward Connerly's Ballot Initiative. What that really meant is that they wouldn't say anything on either side pretty much. Connerly has recently announced that 1/3 of the state's Republicans have signed on in support of the ballot initiative that would ban the use of race (affirmative action) in higher education. Outright opposition has to come forth, not silent disagreement. As Audre Lorde said, "Your silence will not save you."
