TAIWANESE! U.S. Census 2010

All right, on a serious note. There’s a movement going on right now. The stage is being set. Taiwanese all around the U.S. are rallying around this one cause… To get TAIWANESE written into the U.S. Census. As a kid I remember having to tell people that I was Chinese (which is true, by ethnic background) but I wasn’t from China, I was from Taiwan. I’m Taiwanese. I speak Taiwanese, I eat Taiwanese food, I love Taiwanese music and culture. This is especially important in these eight states: CA, NY, TX, NJ, WA, IL, MD, and MA which are supposed to have the largest Taiwanese population in the country. There are an estimated 1 million Taiwanese people living in this country.

Check out the PSA video below and don’t forget to check the “OTHER” box when you fill out your census this year and fill in “TAIWANESE”.
