President Obama At Asian Pacific American Institute For Congressional Studies Annual Gala

Last week, President Obama delivered remarks at the 18th Annual Gala of the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies. I liked how Obama made some remarks about his personal connection with the Asian American community by talking about his half-sister, brother-in-law and his nieces, as well as his time growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia. Obama also makes reference to Vincent Chin’s tragic death to the Japanese internment camps.

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
