The Coors family has a strong history of funding racist agendas. William Coors, former president of the brewery, campaigned for the failure of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Joseph Coors, former president of the brewery, supported the California Ballot Initiative "Racial Privacy Act" which attempted to make racial data collection illegal, preventing discrimination exposure. In 2001, Joeseph Coors donated $100,000 towards the initiative and in 2002 hosted the kick off party for the campaign.
