Below the drawing is text in black: "What's Good for the Politicians / Isn't Good for our Children / Prop 21 is part of a political scheme to attack a vulnerable group, our / youth, and particularly children of color. Prop 21 subjects children as young / as 14 to incarceration in adult prisons, with the attendant risks associated / with mixing adult and juvenile offenders in the same punitive setting. Each / successive hate initiative like prop 187 and 209 emboldens our White / Wing politicians to design even more hate driven draconian legislation. / Vote No on 21".

Below the drawing is the text; "Rabid Homophobes / Armed, Organized, & Dangerous / Prop 22 dictates a homophobic definition of marriage to our / society. This hate law is just one more in a series of attacks / on every ones civil rights. Stop them here and Now!! / Vote No on 22". Below this the text relating to the poster from above is repeated".
