Things are happening. History is being made all over the political landscape. It is encouraging to hear about how people in the state of Louisiana elected the first Vietnamese-American to Congress. Joseph Cao came out of nowhere. But his committed to the community and wanting to bring change, helped him get a seat in Congress.
The great thing about all this is that in a state where people like David Duke served, they now have two minorities who are serving at a high level – Bobby Jindal, an Indian-American serving as governor of Louisiana and now Joseph Cao, serving in Congress.
I believe that in the future we will see more minorities (or shall I say majorities since even the percentages are shifting on who is known as a minority), in higher levels of the political scene (Obama has shattered the ceiling for us).
These are exciting times to be alive.
