Racial discrimination does not cure racial injustice

The use of race adds to racial injustice. The use of race to create racial equality is un-American. Because our promise is one of equal opportunities, not equal outcomes. The opposite of racial injustice is not racially equal outcomes. The Asian American Legal Foundation opposes Prop 16 and racial discrimination. Prohibitions on the use of race are foundational to American society, as enshrined in the 14th Amendment, in the Civil Rights Act and–unless Prop 16 is passed–in the California Constitution.
