Affirmative action before voters in Colo., Neb.

We had this discussion before regarding the necessity of affirmative action these days and at this moment in history.  Some feel it is absolutely necessary, others feel it has negative implications with respect to ability and qualifications.  Vote on affirmative action. If Colorado passes a ballot measure banning government consideration of race or gender in university admissions, contracts and state spending what will happen to the diversity at universities, government contracts etc?  The larger question is whether minorities need affirmative action or not?  What is your belief?  Does affirmative action have a shelf life?
