Sometimes A Good Quote Is Just A Good Quote

I like it when I hear Asian American politicians saying it like it is:

Yoon, who traveled with his finance director, Frank Woodruff, was at ease in the crowd, laughing, mingling, exchanging business cards and delivering a powerful exhortation on Asian-American political empowerment.

"We don't have time to lose," he told the crowd. "We are the community in this country who is the least represented in the halls of government, who have the least amount of experience in campaigns and politics. That's just a fact. And yet our history goes back to 150 years, when the Chinese came and built the railroads. We have to catch up. So there is no time to lose. Now is the time."
Damn straight.

Because it's not just our month - it's our time.
