He died after a policeman had a knee to the back of his neck for about 5 minutes, according to witnesses. Is he our George Floyd?
I read from my column about the case, then SF State Professor Dan Gonzales and I talk about whether Filipino Americans can “rise up” as a community to join others, especially African Americans and #BLM in order to demand justice for Angelo Quinto.

I’m an alumnus of Lowell, a San Francisco native, and I hate what they want to do to Lowell High. It was more important to me than going to Harvard.
My op-ed piece in the SF Chronicle on the proposed lottery for admissions to Lowell High.

All in one day. Got lucky to find a place near me that had the vaccine, openings, and were ready to give me a poke.
Not fully protected without the second shot in four weeks. But so far, good with no adverse reaction.

Very patriotic with the flag on display. At a VFW hall with real working class Americans of all races. Hmong, Sikh, South Asian, Filipino, Latino. Normally underserved, the people hit hardest by the virus were finally getting what they need.
Everyone seemed relieved that they finally could get their vaccine. But it’s only good if everyone get it.
So far a large number still refuse. Nearly half the GOP won’t get vaccinated.
This is not about politics. It’s about science. While there’s not enough data to say anything conclusively, if you’re older you will tend to be susceptible to the virus. So get vaccinated.
If you can get an appointment.
