The Good and Bad of Ride Sharing When It Comes to Race

        THE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM on Uber and Lyft is that the ride-hail
        services are shortcuts for rich people, who take advantage of
        venture capital-subsidized rides at the expense of struggling
        gig economy workers.  Parts of that narrative are probably
        true. But a UCLA urban planning dissertation published this
        spring that looked at Uber and Lyft riders and drivers in the
        County of Los Angeles shows that the tale takes some
        interesting turns. Let's start with the good news.
