Emil Amok: Animal Rights? Peter Singer wrote the book, “Animal Liberation.” In interview him here. And some thoughts on a year after lockdown.

Check out all my columns on race, politics, and culture on the AALDEF site.

I talk about getting the vaccine. Both doses. And a bit on the Biden plan to bring the economy back with the Stimulus plan. All Trump could say yesterday is try to take the credit. But all people remember is how he delayed addressing the virus and cost us more than 525,000 lives. That’s blood on Trump’s hands. Didn’t have to happen, as we remember how it’s taken a year to get to where we are now.

Emil Amok: Inaugural Light and Magic? Thoughts on the day, Harris, Biden, Amanda Gorman, and Diversity.

I talk with Prof. Dan Gonzales of San Francisco State University’s College of Ethnic Studies about the Inaugural and the historic nature of VP Kamala Harris.

Emil Amok! More on Pearl Harbor fallout, Filipino American reaction, and Biden wins again.

Joe Biden won the electoral college vote. It was certified on Monday. Will those in the Trump bubble believe it?
That’s the question. Now that Putin is hacking U.S. government agencies and congratulating Biden, perhaps Trump loyalists should move on.
But as I suggest in my column at aaldef.org/blog, Trump is the guy who takes it beyond the limit. He won’t stop here if there’s a Jan showdown left
in Congress. Who will continue to play dumb for Trump? AG Barr won’t. But who wants a pardon?
That’s why it doesn’t feel as good as it could right now. Biden won again. He has a sympathetic cough. He calls for unity.
But Trump still has 30 days or more left. He still has the keys. An intervention from his pals? Michael Flynn is out there whipping up the
Proud Boy frenzy. We still have some ugliness to endure.

That’s why we still need a Pro-Democracy movement in America.

I’ll be posting another Emil Amok popup today or tomorrow.
In the meantime, take a gander at this museum popup on Filipino American history.
