Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a fundraiser for Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA), the first Chinese-American woman elected to Congress. The fundraiser was organized by the Democratic Asian Americans of Virginia at the home of Fairfax County (Dranesville District) Supervisor John Foust in McLean. In this clip, Rep. Chu speaks about discrimination against Asian Americans, with one example being “your own George Allen…called [an Indian-American staffer for Jim Webb] a ‘macaca,’ which is a racial slur, calling him a monkey.” Rep. Chu adds, “well, that is pretty darned ugly, so I hope that all of you use your voice and make sure he doesn’t get [elected].” Exactly.

  • What a great speaker, so glad I attended
