Could the Supreme Court Remake California Politics?

Hosted by

In 1964, the US Supreme Court’s "one person, one vote" ruling gave new political power to minorities and young people in urban centers — especially Los Angeles.  Now the Court may decide that a "person" should be defined as an "eligible voter," and that could turn the tables again -- with new power for rural areas and the suburbs, where voters are older, richer and whiter.  We hear how that could re-make city councils, county boards of supervisors, and the state legislature.

Also, the "Justice for Feras Morad" campaign remembers a 20-year old college debater shot to death by a Long Beach police officer.
