Over the weekend, I created and published my first “vlog” in response to Snapchat’s controversial Asian filter. Everyone is looking for racism these days where it obviously doesn’t exist. This filter and Ellen DeGeneres’ recent tweet with Usain Bolt are great examples. I had a lot of fun making the video so I think I’ll probably continue doing more of these in the future. I also discuss universal basic income (UBI) and why I don’t think it will lead to the utopian outcome many people expect.
