Black and Outnumbered at UCLA

Hosted by

A spoken-word student-video with more than a million views on YouTube dramatizes how few African-Americans are admitted to UCLA. We hear what it's like to be one of the only black students on campus. Race-based affirmative action was banned by California voters in 1996. What other strategies can help increase diversity? Are they being implemented at UCLA? Also, a full-grown mountain lion slinks through Griffith Park with the Hollywood sign in the background. We hear what it took to get some remarkable photographs.

Image-for-WWLA.jpgOn our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, when nuclear talks resume tomorrow, the Obama Administration is optimistic about a deal with Iran.  But Israel, Saudi Arabia and both parties in Congress, are warning that a bad deal would be worse than no deal at all.  We'll hear about the most likely terms for an agreement and why they're causing so much diplomatic and political friction.
