Lowly Asians...
Discriminated everywhere
07/02/2008

Discrimination never leaves Asian (especially South Asian) alone, be it inside the boundaries of their motherland or outside. According to a recent report, many Asian-American voters faced discrimination from voting officials during 2006 mid-term elections in the United States.

The report alleges that poll officers were hostile towards Asian-American voters, particularly those not fluent in English. Moreover, 83% of voters who were asked to show identification, for authentication, which was not required. The Asian-American communities are primarily immigrants (670,000 persons) and covered under the provisions of the Voting Rights Act. With America having more than 10 million Asian-Americans which accounts for 3.6% of its population, this type of discrimination will create a serious threat to voting patterns. These discriminations are just not confined to the US but can be even experienced in other developed countries like the UK and Canada.

Asian migrants who came to the US in search for better lifestyle and jobs may soon neglect these election and other political participations, if such biased treatment and persecution is practiced.And you call yourself democracy.
