Created in response to Proposition 14. California Proposition 14 was a 1964 ballot proposition that amended the California state constitution, nullifying the Rumford Fair Housing Act, which had guaranteed that landlords must not discriminate against tenants because of ethnicity, religion, sex, marital status, physical handicap, or familial status. Proposition 14 reversed this: 'Neither the State nor any subdivision or agency thereof shall deny, limit or abridge, directly or indirectly, the right of any person, who is willing or desires to sell, lease or rent any part or all of his real property, to decline to sell, lease or rent such property to such person or persons as he, in his absolute discretion, chooses' and was passed by a 65% majority vote in the 1964 California elections. Proposition 14 was declared unconstitutional by the California Supreme Court in 1966. The decision of the California Supreme Court was affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1967 in Reitman v. Mulkey. Proposition 14 has been cited as one of the reasons for the Watts Riots in 1965. [source:]
