A few days ago, I was contacted by Karen Chan, of BBC World Service News – London, about the Abigail Fisher case, now before the U.S. Supreme Court.
How and why Karen Chan contacted me, is a perfect example of how we Hispanics can play a role in defining and shaping opinion not only in America, but around the world.
I asked, “How did you hear about us?” “I did a web search, and ran across your Twitter post (Abigail Fisher : Victim of Racially Motivated Enrollment Policy at University of Texas) and followed it to your blog on GOPisForMe,” she replied. “Oh perfect,” I said, happy to know the social media efforts are paying off.
She asked if I had time to do a recorded interview for their program covering the Affirmative Action case, and of course, I agreed. “Great, then I’ll call you back at noon, central time, ” she said as we ended our call.
At exactly 11:59, my phone rang, and she patched me into the studio, where she came back on and disclosed that we were recording.
This is the interview, which includes my portion, along with an opposing viewpoint from an Affirmative Action representative from the U.S.
