The Colorado Civil Rights Initiative: Separating Fact from Fiction

 

The Center for Equal Opportunity has just released a new analysis, “The Colorado Civil Rights Initiative:  Separating Fact from Fiction.”  It debunks three arguments frequently made by the initiative’s opponents:  (1) that CoCRI will ban all affirmative action; (2) that the initiative is not needed because there really are few if any programs in Colorado that grant preferences on the basis or race, ethnicity, or sex; and (3) that the initiative cannot be justified and should not be passed so long as racism and discrimination still exist in Colorado.  The analysis concludes that none of these assertions is true.
