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.
