Colorblindness at the University of Michigan

On Tuesday, Michigan voters (to my surprise, actually) approved the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative (MCRI), which, like Proposition 209 in California a decade ago, starts the state down the legal road to a truly colorblind society.

And I'm not going to post comments about our racist society, etc. Take those to the Daily Kos or something.

Anyway, John at Discriminations (see blogroll at left) has written two amazing posts about the UM President and her apparent desire to stand in the schoolhouse door a la George Wallace--the first post, and a follow-on post. I'm sure she'll have some help from the people in the University of Michigan Admissions Office.

Some people will do and say anything to keep from having to treat all people fairly.
