Which one of our states do you think is most backward?

Based on these ballot measures, I think Nebraska is the most backward. They decided to ban any affirmative action. Now, while I do believe that some states like California, New York, and even Michigan, can afford these types of measures, Nebraska can't - It's dominantly suburban Christian male whites. White males in Nebraska do not face the same equality challenges as blacks and females. Besides, Andy Roddick is from Nebraska and this mofo hasn't won a tournament since Mandy Moore became famous. Colorado is on a verge of same fate, but it seems like their version of affirmative action is at the moment leaning towards No.
