Merit Disaster Affirmative Action In California on the Ballot

There was a time when advancement based on merit was the goal to be achieved
California approved an amendment to scrap affirmative action because best to in merit believe believed
The idea that one to get a job or advance should be based not on color of skin
But the skills, intelligence, character and desires to the job or advance win
Sadly in the era of failed urban schools in urban cities run by Blue fools
Affirmative action is back as an ease to the white guilt than rules
Skills, intelligence and tests matter sadly not
If you are black or brown you get to fill the slot
If whites to advance or get the job fail no matter how qualified
They need to blame it on the sins of their ancestors as to why they were denied
In a time when we need the brightest and the best
To surmount the issues facing us as a major test
Not those who are picked because of the color of their skin
As others rejected are thrown with their aspirations in the bin
Instead of affirmative action the focus should be on failed Blue city run schools
Where now so hard to get charters and mostly produce dropouts or graduates without any skills
