Proponents Say: Affirmative Action is discriminatory, disenfranchises qualified applicants to schools, jobs and contracts who would otherwise be chosen. Race should not be a determining factor in these areas.
Opponents Say: The state's Affirmative Action laws help create a level playing field by requiring that doors be open to women and minorities. To ban such programs would undo decades of civil rights progress.
Affirmative Action Ban Approved in: Michigan.
