Glynn Custred, a professor of anthropology at California State University, Hayward, and the co-author of California's Proposition 209, will be a guest on Geoff Metcalf's daily Internet talk show today.
Metcalf's interview will deal with a major case of reverse discrimination, in which an applicant for a job as professor of black studies at U.C. Hayward was recommended by the selection committee as she was widely regarded as the most qualified and credentialed candidate. Yet, when it became apparent that the candidate was not black, the university voided the vacancy, essentially taking the job opening off the market. Custred will provide an exclusive preview to his upcoming "Weekly Standard" article on this case.

Proposition 209, which was voted in 1996 to be adopted as Article 1, Section 31 (a) of the California Constitution, says, "The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, or ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting."
Geoff Metcalf's show, which launched July 3, is the Internet's first daily, general-interest, national talk show. The WorldNetDaily columnist previously hosted a daily talk show on San Francisco's KSFO for five years. Metcalf is the first major-market host to launch a daily program whose primary carrier and syndicator is an Internet company -- WorldNetDaily.com, Inc.
The daily program can be heard on
TalkNetDaily, WND's streaming page, as well as on broadcast partner KTKZ 1380 AM in Sacramento, which will broadcast two hours of the program live every day to listeners in Northern California. WND carries three hours live daily from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pacific time (7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern), and the program also can be heard weekends on KSFO in San Francisco.
