Obama Says “Happy API Heritage Month”

He doesn’t say anything revelatory, but events like this make me really feel like part of America. It’s nice to see a president acknowledge Angel Island, the Transcontinental Railroad, the 442, and the Vietnamese community in New Orleans. I mean, his in-laws are Asian.

Below is footage from yesterday’s White House celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The day apparently included some bhangra/hip hop dj-ing. Yum.
