- California passed a proposition called Prop 209 which effectively killed affirmative action in their public university system.
- A bill has been reintroduced that will roll back Prop 209 and allow ethnicity to be used as one factor (NOT a quota) in university admission decisions.
- The bill would undoubtedly benefit, to a large or small degree, under-admitted and lower income groups such as: African-Americans, Latinos, Southeast Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
- The bill might “take more spaces” from other Asian groups (highly dependent on income AND ethnicity) who are typically more represented in the UC system.
- The bill might also “take more spaces” from the white population, which is why conservative Republicans are allying against it
Unless you know a lot about California politics (I know a little, but not a lot) it’s a very tricky issue to wrap your head around. You really need to take it slow and read all the way through.

Ultimately, you need to think about who more privileged East Asians should have solidarity with. The answer to me is obvious. I didn’t come from a rich family by any means, and I worked in restaurants starting at the age of 15, but my family was always able to support my college aspirations and made sure I got into college. A lot of other families don’t have that tradition and aren’t so lucky. I think the anti-SCA5 campaign is especially cruel and deceptive to Pacific Islanders and Southeast Asian-Americans. Hmong, Laotian and Cambodian-Americans actually have LOWER college graduation rates than African-Americans, so they have some of the most to gain from the restoration of affirmative action.
Malaysia Airlines says it has lost contact with a plane travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board.
The airline said in a statement that flight MH370 disappeared at 02:40 local time on Saturday (18:40 GMT on Friday).
It had been expected to land in Beijing at 06:30 (22:30 GMT).
The plane went off the radar in Vietnamese airspace, according to a statement on the Vietnamese government website.
Its last known location was south of Vietnam’s Ca Mau peninsular although the exact position was not clear, it said.

im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards
Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!
An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:
- desserts & stressed
- drawer & reward
- gateman & nametag
- time & emit
- laced & decal
- regal & lager
And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.
Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.
