Former Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang rallied Asian Americans to vote against Donald Trump in what he said could be a political gamechanger for the often overlooked community.

Asian American voters are the fastest-growing voting bloc with over 11 million eligible voters.
He’s frankly mobilizing the power of the US government on behalf of his campaign” and told Asian American voters that “the only way we overcome that is by a massive turnout.”
Stereotyping Asian Americans as educated and hard-working, the model minority myth limits Asian Americans as people who are perfectly suited to be led, but not necessarily lead themselves.
