Reject state-sanctioned discrimination, reject Proposition 16: Betty Chu

I am one of the first women of Chinese descent to pass the California bar exam. I was mayor of Monterey Park. I was the first Chinese-American woman to co-found and run a bank in the United States. In my lifetime, I have seen Asian Americans prevail against racism to be treated as fully American, as equal citizens, employees and leaders. This has occurred in large part because racism itself has become unacceptable in America. What a triumph! It pains me greatly, then, that after all this progres...
