Apparently the Asian Republican Coalition is a thing. And they’re having a hard time recruiting Asian Americans.
So they decided to “broaden the footprint” of what counts as an Asian American. To include business guys who work in Asia. People married to Asian Americans. And Americans who have lived in Asia.
Nope. Just nope.

That’s still kind of restrictive. They might as well broaden it to any Republican who’s ever jerked off to Asian porn.

what about any republican who’s ever had an asian friend?
or like talked to an asian?
or eaten asian food?

Hahahahahahaha. Though this is interesting since I’m pretty sure although Asian Americans usually swing left, Vietnamese, Thai, and Japanese communities have shown to lean more right than Chinese, Korean, Indian, and Filipino communities.

The Asian American community went from generally voting Republican to suddenly leaning way left. In 1992, Asian voters overwhelmingly went with Bush over Clinton; fast forward 20 years, and it’s the opposite.
Also, LOL.

Santa Barbara High School seniors hired a mariachi band to follow their principal around all day for their senior prank. Amazing.


"I had a very resourceful cameraman by the name of Tony Wasserman from South Africa. We’d covered wars all over the world and uprisings in every corner of the planet. I went out and he had a bicycle, and he was putting a soft drink box on the back and I immediately said, ‘You’re gonna put a camera in there, right?’ And he said, ‘Absolutely.’
We took off not knowing if I was going to get shot or whether we were going to pull this off or not. And I rode behind Tony, I was wired up so we could sync it up later, and to our surprise, no one stopped us. Only one Chinese bicyclist bicycled up behind Tony, reached to the box, and tickled the lens, and then drove away.”

"Remember that consciousness is power. Consciousness is education and knowledge. Consciousness is becoming aware. It is the perfect vehicle for students. Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power, and be sure that power will not be abusively used, but used for building trust and goodwill domestically and internationally. Tomorrow’s world is yours to build."

Yuri Kochiyama (1921-2014)

"You’ve been paid for by people who never even saw your face. Your mother’s mother, your father’s father. And so it behooves you to prepare yourself so you can pay for someone else yet to come. Whose name you’ll never know. You just keep the good thing going."
