Affirmative Action Hangs in the Balance

After President Trump's rollback of Obama-era affirmative action guidelines, and Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement, race-based college admissions could become a thing of the past. We have a big look at affirmative action, how it works, what attitudes around it are and how those attitudes are changing; a look at the Carter Page FISA application for wire-tapping and surveillance; a reporter discusses the county and city's efforts to deal with the booming homeless population in Los Angeles; and we kick off our series of conversations on women and rage - starting with a roundtable.
