be louder

I don't particularly like or dislike Hillary Clinton, but it's not a good sign that she can't hire people for her campaign who don't understand the difference between Chinese and Chinese-American. The SF Chronicle reported on Tuesday that a Hillary Clinton staffer refused a couple journalists for ethnic newspapers at the door because they were "foreign press." How disrespectful is that? What kind of message does that send, that regardless of everything Asian-Americans have done for this country, they can still be considered foreign? This is exactly the attitude that leads to something like if we were to be in a war with an Asian nation, and then we rounded up all the people who happened to have the same ethnicity and you know, interned them in camps or something. Clinton's campaign apologized for the gaffe after the journalists involved made a fuss, but this really doesn't endear me to Hillary.
