We must stop SCA 5

When I immigrated to this country at age 14, no one told me the "American Dream" was impossible because of the color of my skin; on the other hand, no one told me the same dream will be handed to me because of the  color of my skin.  What I was told is that if you work hard and do your best, this country will give you that opportunity and freedom to make your dream come true.  Freedom of upward mobility, accomplishment and the ability to provide for one's family is the ultimate drive that motivates people to work so hard.

With the passing of SCA-5 in California, all of the principles of competition and the drive for excellence have been eliminated.  Requiring the UC and CSU College system to cap the number of students from any given ethnic background based on that ethnicity's overall percentage of the state population is racial discrimination at its finest, and it eliminates the founding principle of our country, work hard and you shall achieve.  How has our California State Senate become so "dumbed down" that they think this is best method of selecting incoming students for our crown jewel, envy of the world--our California UC and CSU Education System?  In addition, how are they going to be able to enforce this policy?

I feel strongly that we need to protect civil liberty of our citizens; however, determining the admission to our higher education should be based on individual merit and academic result; not based on sex, national origin nor race.  SCA 5 completely missed the point of protecting minorities.  It needs to be repealed and never seen again.  Please help elect me to the State Senate and not only will I fight SCA 5 if passed, but I will fight to keep it from ever becoming law in the future, and will assure that the legislature never tries to sneak it by the voters again.
