"MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Assembly gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a surprise proposal introduced by a Democrat, and backed by Republicans, to eliminate race as a factor in college grant applications.
The proposal, made around 11 p.m. Tuesday, elicited a furious response from Democratic opponents, who labeled it an affront to minority rights and a "racist race to the bottom." But Republicans, who hold the majority, sided with Democratic Rep. Peggy Krusick who made the proposal and pressed ahead, arguing race shouldn't be a factor when considering who gets aid based on financial need.
"What it is is racism in its highest institutional level," said Rep. Tamara Grigsby, D-Milwaukee." Source: EHExtra.com
Wow, way to go Peggy, why not join the party that is helping Wisconsin and not fighting Wisconsin.
