Minority

 

We seem to be the minority wherever we go. Our kids are the only two kids in their school with heritage tracing back to Taiwan. There are about 1,342 Taiwanese (0.5% of all Asian population in Minnesota compared to Chinese which is 11.4%) in Minnesota according to 2010 Census. We also fall in the minority group for voting a Republican presidential candidate compared to the majority of the Minnesotans since Minnesota has the longest streak, out of all states, of voting a Democrat in the presidential elections.

 

Another thing that puts us in the minority is supporting the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and favoring Taiwan Independence. How does it feel to be a minority? I think that it pushes us to fight harder than others.
