RACIAL PRIVACY INITIATIVE
Bob of Unfogged thinks Ward Connerly’s latest gambit amounts to “wilful ignorance” of racial discrimination.
I think Connerly’s rationale is that, by far, the biggest perpetrator of racial discrimination these days is the government. By forbidding the government from recording people’s race, we make it much more difficult for them to discriminate on that basis. Since government dominates education and is the largest employer, that would indeed be a huge step toward a color blind society.
