By way of orientation and background, please also read the accompanying article Perfect Storm for Equality.
SOME TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION:
- Corporate America strongly supports racial quotas and preferences. What can we do to encourage them to embrace equal treatment under the law? Boycotts? Lawsuits?
- Voters in the state of Michigan recently approved the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative (MCRI) by a 58% majority. The MCRI bans consideration of race and gender in public education, public contracting, and public employment. Yet the University of Michigan continues to publish strategies to defeat voter initiatives against racial quotas and preferences. How do we counter these misguided efforts to circumvent the will of the voters?
- Both Republican and Democrat voters have resoundingly voted in favor of the California, the Washington State, and recently the Michigan bans on racial preferences. Yet all of their elected representatives of both major parties strongly opposed those state initiatives. How can we convince our elected representatives that they are NOT representing their constituents interests and should therefore support bans against racial preferences?
- Why are conservatives and Republicans so afraid to promote the just cause of equal treatment under the law? What can we do as voters to encourage them to represent our interests on this issue?
