I winced — just a bit — the first time I heard Andrew Yang deploy what would become his most reliable applause line.
It’s fitting that such an unexpected political movement would have an Asian American man as its underdog figurehead.
Andrew Yang speaks to voters at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 9 in Des Moines.
His emphasis on being an Asian American math nerd helps him pitch one of his central policy ideas: a universal basic income.
Yang grasps that, despite the grievances many Asian Americans justifiably hold about discrimination, members of the best-educated and highest-earning group in America shouldn’t linger on victimhood.
