Right wing groups like the 80-20 Initiative are trying to scare Asian American families into opposing SCA 5 and asking their state legislators to stand up against “racism.”
Dear right-wingers: you can’t weaponize the 14th amendment to drive a wedge between Asian Americans and other people of color.
Dr. OiYan Poon writes clearly about why their arguments are simple fearmongering. Don’t buy the crap they’re selling. SCA 5 is not a ballot measure that would “exclude” Asian Americans from California’s public universities.

Viola Davis And Shonda Rhimes Team Up For Sexy Legal Thriller ‘How To Get Away With Murder’
In one of those actor/writer combos that many of us have hoped would some day happen, Viola Davis has signed up to star in the Shonda Rhimes-created drama for ABC titled How To Get Away With Murder.
The project, produced via Rhimes’ Shondaland production company, with her partner Betsy Beers, is described as a sexy, suspense legal thriller that follows a brilliant criminal defense attorney (played by Davis) and her ambitious law school students who become entangled in a murder mystery that could have major ramifications on their entire university as well as change the course of their lives.
Davis will play the lead character named Annalise DeWitt, the brilliant law professor and accomplished criminal defense attorney, who is further described as an excellent manipulator of people, particularly the law students who work at her law firm. And even juicier, she’s married to a psychology professor, while also having an affair, and calls her law class “How to Get Away With Murder.”
Rounding out the cast are Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Alfred Enoch, Karla Souza, Jack Falahee and Charlie Weber.
