It's a hot button issue for asians. It's not like we don't know that there is racism elsewhere. We see it at every level above middle management in corporate america. We see it when professors are granted tenure, we see it on dating apps and pornography, we see it in how teachers treat our kids. But a lot of asians sort of grit their teeth and grind through it because they think that their kids can get into a good college and have a better life. So when you start to take away their dream of a better life for their kids, it really bugs them.

I have never seen asians more politically active and motivated than they are now. And they are starting to move away from the Democrats.
