The Denver Post yesterday came out against the Connerly initiative in Colorado:
Amendment 46 isn’t as simple as it seems, and there have been disingenuous arguments on both sides of the issue to further muddy the waters.
We hope Colorado voters take the time to understand what it means and what it will do. And then, we hope they vote it down.
In short, this ballot question purports to end discrimination, but what it would really do is slam shut the small — and let us emphasize small — window that allows race and gender to be factors in state college admissions and in the awarding of government contracts.
Amendment 46 is being pushed by Ward Connerly, a Californian trying to export his political solutions to states that don’t necessarily want or need them.
