Arizona Civil Rights Amendment, Proposition 107
The proposed amendment would ban affirmative action programs in the state that are administered by statewide or local units of government, including state agencies, cities, counties and school districts.
A "YES" vote shall have the effect of prohibiting the State from giving preferential treatment to or discriminating against any person or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. The prohibition applies to preferences or discrimination in public employment, education or contracting. It exempts reasonably necessary qualifications based on sex, existing court orders and actions that would result in the loss of federal funds. The State includes state government, local governments, public colleges and universities, community colleges and school districts.
A "NO" vote shall have the effect of retaining the current law regarding preferential treatment to or discrimination against any person or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in public employment, education or contracting.

God is love, Only!!! We must not hate each other we are made in his image and all this hate destroys our humanity!!! We are suppose to be getting better as human beings. Relax! Take a deep breath and love yourself life family and thy neighbor (everyone)...... With love and a smile and a peaceful quite heart you will bring it all back to you. Turning the other cheek , just means walk away from haters and try real hard not to react. And try not to blame any race or religion we were born without a choice all we know is what we have been taught right or wrong we all have the same creator......one god!!!.......we need to make the best of this life .

The Mother has even been substntiated on neglect charges. This is ok but all Governemnt needs to follow this law too!

I do not understand. Is preferential treatment the same as discrimination?

I cannot understand what they are trying to say.

Vote YES on 107, thereby eliminating AFFIRMATIVE ACTION... and therefore all ethnic groups shall truly be equal!
How are they going to be equal when white people subjected blacks to centuries of slavery.

Even those who wrote the constitution proclaiming that "all men are created equal" forgot that blacks were human beings and kept them in slavery. What a hypocrisy!!!!!!

Arizona will soon become a xenophobic state or the new fascist nation!!!!

Affirmative Action is DEAD. Certain ethnic groups don't get to officially and indefinitely be VICTIMS forever. Everyone is now officially EQUAL!
How come everyone is equal when some families can afford college for their kids while others not.

Everyone is "officially equal" since the constitution was written by those slaveholders who kept making money out of slavery. What a hypocrisy! How many indians did white kill????

Who was it that said "how can you justify murdering a murderer with a law". So how can one justify reverse discrimination? because at one time there was a serious problem with discrimination! that makes about as much sense as the woman who sued Mcdonalds because she spilled hot coffee on herself. Jobs should be for the person with the most experience and schooling, not because of their race or gender, most of the people that want to take advantage of this are the lazy people and the ones that don't have the drive to get the schooling.
And maybe that person has more experience because he was sent to college with the money his ancestors made off slavery!

VOTE "NO" Prop 120
(Reuters)-When voters in Arizona go to the polls next month, they will be asked to decide a landownership tug of war: Should the Grand Canyon belong to all Americans, or just the residents of Arizona?
A controversial ballot measure backed by Republicans in the state legislature is seeking sovereign control over millions of acres of federal land in the state, including the Grand Canyon.
Proposition 120 would amend the state's constitution to declare Arizona's sovereignty and jurisdiction over the "air, water, public lands, minerals, wildlife and other natural resources within the state's boundaries."
The measure is the latest salvo in the so-called "sagebrush revolt" by Republicans in the West aiming to take back control of major swaths of land owned by various federal agencies, much of it by the Interior Department's Bureau of Land Management.
State Senator Sylvia Allen, one of the Republican backers of the measure, argues that federal retention of the land hurts the economy of the Western states and leaves them struggling to fund public education, nurture their economies, and manage their forests and natural resources.
"We do not have the ability in rural Arizona to provide jobs for our citizens due to the fact that the federal government controls all the land," Allen told Reuters. "It leaves us at a great disadvantage. We're not able to bring in industry and provide for the jobs that we need," she added.
The exact area of public land targeted by the measure - which excludes American Indian reservations and federal installations such as arsenals - was not immediately clear on the Arizona Secretary of State's website.
The Sierra Club pegged the area at between 39,000 and 46,700 square miles (101,000 and 121,000 square km)- or 34 percent to 41 percent of the entire state.
BATTLE OVER LAND
The ballot measure is just the latest move in a decades-old federal-state skirmish over control of a wide range of natural resources in Western states, often pitting mining, drilling and logging companies against those seeking to protect the environment.
