A Time/CNN poll reported 80% of the public believe that "affirmative action programs for minorities and women should be continued;" yet, the Oklahoma Legislature has proposed a constitutional amendment that will end affirmative action in public employment, public education and public contracting. Those who oppose injustice caused by discrimination must vote NO on State Question 759
