“Racial privacy” initiative’s name hides true purpose

To the Editor:  

The so called “racial privacy initiative” (slated to appear on California’s November ballot) is not about privacy nor equality. It is simply an attempt to hide the presence of people of African descent.  

This denial of African presence has occurred in North, Central and South America for years and years.  

If the initiative passes, it may have one small good effect: Fifty years from now, Ward Connerly will be erased from history.
