The blacks are crying for more favors against all others because their ancestors were slaves, and they still can't get a good education like others because of discrimination. It's all B.S. and they have had amble opportunity  to prove themselves  since 1964.

SACRAMENTO — 

California voters would be asked to erase the state’s 24-year ban on affirmative action in November under a proposal approved Wednesday by the state Assembly, with supporters arguing their effort is more important than ever amid nationwide protests for racial equality and justice.

The plan would strike from California’s Constitution the rules imposed by Proposition 209, which prohibits government agencies and institutions from giving preferential treatment to individuals on the basis of race or sex. The ballot measure sparked a fierce political and cultural debate in 1996, much of which focused on the impact of the era’s affirmative action policies for admission to the state’s colleges and universities.

    California would be better off if they required all applicants for college entrance to complete reading, writing, reasoning and math proficiency tests (SAT) to prove that they are capable of being trained. BTW: college graduation certificate only means you are trainable IMO.    B)

    Nope - in many cases it only means that you showed up enough to not get failed and the teachers were not allowed to give you a failing grade.
