    Campaign to End Affirmative Action Scores Decisive Win in Neb., Looks to Future

    By Kevin Mooney, Staff Writer


    (CNSNews.com) -- Although Barack Obama opposed civil rights initiatives on the ballot last week, a decisive win in Nebraska and a narrow loss in Colorado show that millions of Americans will vote against race-based preferences – if they get the chance to.

    Voters in Nebraska approved a ballot initiative last week, 58 percent to 42 percent, aimed at eliminating government-sanctioned discrimination on the basis of race and gender under the banner of affirmative action.

    The election with an Obama win proves that race-based initiatives are no longer valid or needed. I never did believe they were.

    I don't believe Obama agrees with you.

    What does this comment have to do with affirmative action?
