My name is Ethan. I am 19 years old, Chinese-American college student.
I did not vote in the last election because I was not 18 yet.
I decided to vote because I am tired of the current state of America. Racism is seen everywhere. We’ve normalized people dying to police brutality. Change is needed now.
As an Asian American, I feel our voice is represented at times. For example, we are the model citizen for “colored” people, but still at times embrace racism which is often normalized and overlooked.
COVID has been a blessing in disguise because even though I have not been able to go out so frequently, I have been able to see my family who is often busy working.
I want to see the cops who are guilt of police brutality be responsible for their actions.
VOTE!!! Your voice matters! Do not be afraid to stand up for what you think! Asian Pacific Islander American Voters Election 2020
