Affirmative action has been abolished in Michigan
The Michigan Civil Rights Initiative was approved with 1,491,457 votes Tuesday. The opposition to Proposal 2 totaled 1,052,209, with 73 percent of precincts reporting.
Topinabee sophomore Dennis Lennox II said he was not surprised with the results.
“I expected the good citizens of Michigan would realize affirmative action based on race and gender is not acceptable,” Lennox II said. “It can be seen through the results.”
The amendment to the Michigan constitution bans public institutions from using programs that offer preferential treatment in Michigan to groups or individuals based on race, gender, color, ethnicity or national origin for education, public employment or contracting purposes.
