California Lawmakers Vote to Reinstate Racial Discrimination

California's Democrat-controlled legislature has voted to bring back racial discrimination in the name of anti-racism.

The California legislature last week voted to strike these words from their state constitution: "The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin."

The vote wasn't even close.

Such language is now beyond the pale for the woke left.

From The Wall Street Journal:
We live in strange times, and strange indeed is that, while deploring racism, the Democratic Legislature in California has voted to codify racial discrimination in state law. On Wednesday the state Senate voted for a constitutional amendment, ACA 5, that would reintroduce racial preferences for who gets a state job or contract, or who is admitted to a state university.

The state Assembly previously passed the measure, which means the amendment will be on the November ballot. It would repeal Proposition 209, which voters approved in 1996 and outlawed racial bias in state policy. The repeal effort received a boost from the killing of George Floyd, no matter the irony of voting for discrimination by race in the name of eliminating discrimination by race.
Is this what they call "systemic racism"?
