"Talk is cheap, voting is free; take it to the polls.” - Nanette L. Avery

Oct 27, 2020

In a year of blockbuster propositions, Prop 22 is “the big one.” Latest polls show it's in a dead heat. Uber, Lyft, and Doordash have spent close to $200 million convincing you to vote yes, and the San Francisco Chronicle has endorsed prop 22 while the LA Times says no. Eugene and David debate prop 22, the rights of Uber drivers, and the gig economy. We also discuss Prop 21, and rent control, and Eugene “solves housing” for us. :) As always, thanks for listening!

“They are working to trick the public into voting in favor of this. And they’re getting traction.” - Prof. Veena Dubal, UC Hastings

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
