From today’s editorial in the Los Angeles Times:
In theory, we would be pleased to see the end of affirmative action bans such as Proposition 209 and Proposal 2. This page strongly opposed Proposition 209 when it was on the ballot. We continue to believe that affirmative action is a reasonable, fair and effective way to redress past harms and promote diversity at public universities. We hope that the Supreme Court, which is currently hearing a different case involving affirmative action, reaffirms its constitutionality.
The editorial continues: “But though we support affirmative action, we also believe that voters have a right to ban it.”
