Affirmative Action Bill Passes CA Assembly Even As Opposition Mounts

"Giving special or preferential treatment to someone based on their race is racism itself, or on their sex is sexism. I do not want to live in a state where the color of my skin or my race or my sex or my national origin determines my qualifications for a position, a job or entering to a college. I came here to this country to get away from ideologies like that."  ~Assemblyman Steven Choi
