Prop 16 in a Minute: Affirmative Action

Clip: Season 2020 | 56s | Video has closed captioning.

Prop 16 supports repealing Prop 209, which says California can’t give preferential treatment to people based on race, ethnicity or sex in public employment, education and contracting. Supporters say banning affirmative action to prevent discrimination was deceptive. Opponents say it could hurt Asian Americans, who have an outsize enrollment in selective state universities.
