"We really need to start speaking with one voice so it's not a Filipino, Indian, Japanese or Chinese voice, but an Asian voice the community hears," he said.

Funny, I thought that when you emmigrated here and became a naturalized citizen then you were an American. yet you want to speak with an Asian voice as a community. And for this they gave you the Ellis Island Award. I'd say that award has lost it's validity out of political correctness. You speak as either Asian or American- which one is it? You just want to help other Asians, not other Americans. Not exactly the spirit of Ellis Island, is it?
