Go Fund Me to support victims of Kansas City shootings
This is on the big national level. Even at the local level it’s hard for Asian Americans to get their footing for political positions: http://www.bensonhurstbean.com/2016/06/colton-slams-imposter-billy-thai-misleading-leaflets/#.V2ScY_krLIU

Is this a Democrat Party ‘thing’ or is it just that these most regrettable things happen to be happening on Obama’s watch.
I can argue that if Obama was really for racial unity, he’d have his people be more careful in taking these actions.
Would a Republican administration do any better?
The Democrats appear to be ‘flubbing it’….in football, if your team can’t move the ball forward ten yards in four plays, the ball goes over to the other team, and they get a crack at trying to move it forward ten yards in four plays. I may be belittling the injustice of the situation; my apologies for doing so. The point is, let’s give the other team (a.k.a. the Republicans) a chance with the ball and see if they ‘flub it’.
Dear Mr. Kwiatkowski,
I am unaware of Republicans indicting Asian Americans and then having to dismiss the cases as being without merit. As you noticed from reading the rest of the Hall of Shame, some Republicans have taken other unfair governmental actions against Asian Americans.

Asian American Politics
Note: for all of his embarrassing (especially to Republicans and right-leaning libertarians like me) talk about Hispanics and Muslims, I don’t recall that Donald Trump has had much to say, good or bad, about Asian-Americans. He has denounced what he asserts are ‘bad trade deals’, but that’s about all I’ve heard. Maybe I’ve missed it, in all of the furor over his ‘asking the Russians to find Hillary’s 30,000 missing e-mails’, or his assertion that ‘President Obama started Isis (he may have enabled it to become what it is today, but it wasn’t his idea) or even going back to his spat with Megyn Kelly.
Anyone with knowledge along these lines, comment here and enlighten my ignorance…
On the day of his inauguration, I wonder what you folks at Asian-American politics expect from a Trump presidency?
Looking at Don Joe’s post of July 24 of last year, methinks maybe I ought to read those ‘Hall of Shame’ entries and see what Republicans have done.
Be aware that my own political leanings are libertarian…I tend to side with the Republicans on fiscal issues and either side with the Democrats or remain neutral on social issues. For instance, I try to ‘look the other way’ on gay marriage.
Most Asian Americans vote Democrat now so they expect the worse from Trump: hostile immigration policies, repealing Obamacare and fraying welfare programs. Republican Asian Americans may hope for less discrimination against Asian American applicants to universities, less onerous regulation of businesses, and more support for Taiwan.
The hot-button issues, as you can plainly see for yourself, involve Hispanics from south of the Rio Grande, and Muslims in general. I note that in history people have been suspicious of Catholics. I myself need to take a closer look at the conflicts between Catholics and Protestants in history – the English-Spanish conflict that led to the Spanish Armada, the Thirty Years’ War in Germany, and other situations.
I think, repeat, think I understand the threat of Islamic terrorists infiltrating into the U.S. with the mass of refugees. I think, repeat, think, I understand the threat of Muslims trying to impose their religion on the world. I hate religious fanatics in general, regardless of denomination, though not intensely. preach to me if you will, but let me worship according to the dictates of my own conscience in the end… even if I ‘elect’ not to worship at all. I do happen to be an evolutionist. (Calling myself a ‘Darwinist’ might cause people to think I pray to Charles Darwin, which sounds a little bit crazy, don’t you think?)
