When your philosophy is all about pigeon holing people with respect to ethnicity and race, sooner or later you wind up angering some segment of your constituency. (Of course white people don’t count, so you don’t worry about pissing them off.) Latins in California are angry that Prop 209 won’t let colleges consider race when approving an application; trouble is, Asians would be the ones getting screwed and they’re stopping 209 from being gutted. This is how groups become Republicans. Asian achieve.
