#100PostsIn24HrsForAAPIHeritageMonth - 19 - You're A First: David Ryu + Have We Really Come That Far Since 1850?

Sunday, May 24, 2015

Listen - I'm not saying this isn't cool for everyone involved including what looks to be a very affable David Ryu (and that's just a nice photo from his campaign stash) - because he is a first - the first Korean American elected to the LA City Council. But he's also only the second Asian American to get elected since 1850.


Who's the first?

Mike Woo in 1985.
