Thank you everyone for the feedback on my 2020 California Propositions Guide! You can find the guide in the link below. In today's episode, Eugene and I focus on Prop 16, and the looming issue of affirmative action.

As someone who was once staunchly anti-affirmative action, I talk about my journey and why I'm now a proponent. We also discuss how Asian Americans are uniquely situated in the affirmative action debate, and what that means for us. As always, thank you for listening!

"This conversation is about power, it's about race and the loss of power or the perceived loss of power. And frankly, the fear of sharing power ... This is 2020 and let us not get into this fallacy that this is about a zero-sum narrative and one's gain is another's loss. But this is about how we can recognize that an injustice to one, is an injustice to all." - State Assemblyman Evan Low
