Asian-American Identity And Politics

Attracting Latino and Black voters has been a major campaign storyline this year. Meanwhile, Asian-Americans haven’t been courted as aggressively. Russell M. Jeung, professor of Asian-American Studies at San Francisco State University, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the issues that speak to Asian-American voters – and how religion plays into party affiliation. His essay “The Religious and Racial Minoritization of Asian American Voters” appears in the book “Religion Is Raced: Understanding American Religion in the Twenty-First Century.”
