‘A Huge Blind Spot’: Why New York Asians Feel Overlooked
The New York Times, 7.4.18
It does not seem to matter, Asian-American officeholders and activists say that all five Asian-American elected officials at the city, state and federal levels are Democrats, like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. Nor does it matter that Asian-Americans of all backgrounds, including East and South Asians, now make up almost 15 percent of the City’s population, with the total number up by more than half since 2000. Or that the number of Chinese and Korean registered voters has doubled over the same period, according to the Center for Urban Research at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
