- California passed a proposition called Prop 209 which effectively killed affirmative action in their public university system.
- A bill has been reintroduced that will roll back Prop 209 and allow ethnicity to be used as one factor (NOT a quota) in university admission decisions.
- The bill would undoubtedly benefit, to a large or small degree, under-admitted and lower income groups such as: African-Americans, Latinos, Southeast Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
- The bill might “take more spaces” from other Asian groups (highly dependent on income AND ethnicity) who are typically more represented in the UC system.
- The bill might also “take more spaces” from the white population, which is why conservative Republicans are allying against it
Unless you know a lot about California politics (I know a little, but not a lot) it’s a very tricky issue to wrap your head around. You really need to take it slow and read all the way through.

Ultimately, you need to think about who more privileged East Asians should have solidarity with. The answer to me is obvious. I didn’t come from a rich family by any means, and I worked in restaurants starting at the age of 15, but my family was always able to support my college aspirations and made sure I got into college. A lot of other families don’t have that tradition and aren’t so lucky. I think the anti-SCA5 campaign is especially cruel and deceptive to Pacific Islanders and Southeast Asian-Americans. Hmong, Laotian and Cambodian-Americans actually have LOWER college graduation rates than African-Americans, so they have some of the most to gain from the restoration of affirmative action.

actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
I smile every time I remember German birth control pills are called “antibabypillen”. Though in the interest of fairness, “fireplace”.

ok but a mute lesbian knight who kicks ass and slays 10000 men and is a star jouster and is loved by everyone in her village but has to lean up and whisper in her girlfriend’s ear anytime she needs to give instructions to her cavalry
Rumors start up about how her voice is too terrible and mighty to be heard by commonfolk, which is why her girlfriend serves as her official crier
Twins Jennifer and June Gibbons became notorious in the ’80s when they carried out a two-woman crime spree at age 18 that resulted in both sisters being declared psychopaths and sent to England’s most famous high-security hospital for the criminally insane. However, they already had plenty of experience being creepy before that: As kids they were known as “the silent twins” because they refused to speak to anyone but each other, and even then they used their own secret language that no one else could understand.
Born to Barbadian parents and raised in Wales, Jennifer and June refused to read or write in school, but at home it was the opposite: They read voraciously and filled dozens of diaries with writing, including full novels with names like The Pepsi-Cola Addict and Discomania. Like all children, they liked to play games, but rather than settling for Barbies or Monopoly, they had bizarre rituals where they decided which one would wake up in the morning first or which one would breathe first, and the other one wasn’t allowed to do anything until the first one did so.
Their relationship was complicated. On one hand, they were best friends, and on the other, they occasionally tried to kill each other — Jennifer tried to strangle June with the cord of a radio, and June responded by throwing Jennifer off a bridge. Their odd behavior escalated as they grew older and turned to petty theft and arson. It was at this point that their parents realized there might be something wrong with the girls and agreed to have them committed (and if they hadn’t, the authorities probably would have insisted)
It was toward the end of their 14-year stay at Broadmoor Hospital that the twins would pull off their magnum opus. One day, they told their only friend, journalist Marjorie Wallace (author of their biography, published years earlier), that one of them wouldn’t make it out of the hospital alive. Jennifer just looked at Wallace and said, “I’m going to die. We’ve decided.”
You see, the twins had realized that they could never be free or normal as long as they were both alive, and so, according to Wallace and later interviews by a reformed June, Jennifer agreed to be the one to die. And what do you know, on the day that they were being transferred to a lower security hospital, Jennifer suddenly passed away from a rare heart problem that was never fully explained. As predicted, June became considerably less creepy after she stopped being a twin, and today she lives a quiet life with her family. Which somehow just makes all of the above even weirder.
I remember reading about them.
Fuck me sideways. I’m a student of the odd and mysterious, and yet I have never heard of these two before. I gotta go see about this story. Thank you for posting this.
