Welcome to Hunsweck for Assembly 2014
The ad above highlights Evan Low's position on SCA 5 in an interview he did with KQED. He says, "There are no quotas, and so there's a lot of misinformation that's out there." He also says we need to "thank" Senator Hernandez for creating SCA 5.
The clips from the KQED interview are interspersed with clips from a separate talk Evan Low gave two years ago. In it, he discusses his support for a ban on shark fin soup. Evan Low stated that he was "kicked out of a Chinese restaurant" over his support for the ban. Now I doubt anyone really cares if Evan Low helped put a ban on a particular kind of soup. But I know a lot of Asian parents are deeply concerned over Evan Low's support for SCA 5, since it would hurt the chances their kids might have in getting into a top public university.
Although SCA 5 is currently halted in the State Assembly, the upcoming elections are going to be critical in determining the bill's future. If the Democrats keep their majorities, there is no doubt that they will try to pass SCA 5 again next year. And it will be a lot easier to do if Evan Low is elected to the State Assembly while running in a district that was at the heart of the protests against SCA 5.
Evan Low said Senator Hernandez needs to be "thanked" for creating SCA 5. But Evan Low is wrong. Senator Hernandez doesn't need to be thanked. He needs to be stopped. It is not an exaggeration to say that your kids might be denied admission to a top university due to their skin color if Evan Low is elected. Evan Low is not only wrong, he is also on the wrong side of history. He may feel confident now, but his support for racial discrimination will no doubt doom his campaign.
