Scott Keller on Civil Rights
A: I fully support same-sex domestic partnerships and the equality of these partnerships under law. I believe that any two people should be able to enter into a contract, and have that contract honored. Benefits that comes as a result of a marriage contract should be viable in a civil union contract as well. I am an advocate of freedom. This is supposed to be a free country.
A: I fully support equality in the workplace and in hiring practices, and the end of discrimination against women and minorities. However, I do not support affirmative action, which is effectively reverse discrimination, and doesn't ultimately solve the problems of racism and sexism. I favor new and innovative approaches to truly empowering women and minorities through local economic & business models. Local coop non-profit businesses, local economic models, untying the hands of non-profit and alternative model businesses greatly increase the career options available to all people because of the new employment needs they create. By working on a local level, community members who know each other and have a stake in their community will be working together, and corporate imposed discrimination will dissolve. We are all people, and we should not discriminate on the basis of race or gender.
