California voters reject affirmative action measure despite summer of activism
OAKLAND — California voters rejected Proposition 16, a major blow to Democrats and social justice advocates who hoped a national reckoning on racial inequality following the police killing of George Floyd would translate into a long-sought repeal of the state’s affirmative action ban.

The measure placed on the ballot by state lawmakers was losing 44-56 after nearly 12 million votes were counted overnight.

Asians + whites are still 60% of California, that's probably why.

the bill explicitly says the state can discriminate on race and they still got 40% of the vote or more

California, the Shoplifting State
Retail theft was decriminalized, and guess what happened?

Progressives in California in recent years have strengthened property rights—to other people’s property. Shoplifting has essentially been decriminalized, and retailers that apprehend thieves can be sued. The result: Another Walgreens store in San Francisco, the seventh this year, is closing after its shelves were cleared by looters.

“All of us knew it was coming,” longtime customer Sebastian Luke told the San Francisco Chronicle. “Whenever we go in there, they always have problems with shoplifters.”

Only because they couldn't figure out how to cheat just one issue on the ballots. They only know how to add ballots.
