  • Why Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is still necessary

    We are the fastest growing major racial group, yet we’re still starved for representation.

  • Asian-Americans rejected by Harvard need to resist the anti-affirmative action narrative

    There is a story about race-based college admissions that holds particular sway over Asian-American students like I once was — my father wrote away for my Harvard application before I was out of diapers.

  • Asian-Americans, a Sleeping Political Giant
