Affirmative Action, Feeding the World & Political Dynasties

Hosted by  • 

The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld Michigan’s ban on affirmative action in the state’s university admissions programs. Nearly 20 years ago, California banned affirmative action for its colleges and universities after voters adopted Prop 209. And yet, the University of California announced that for the first time, more Latinos were offered admission than whites. By 2050, there will be 9 billion people on earth. So, just how are we going to feed all those people? And how can we do it without destroying the earth? We also take a look at the history of political dynasties in the U.S. And we have a cure for True Detective withdrawal.
