USA – HOW FAR WE'VE COME: Chris Cheng is a gay and Asian male-a twofer in terms of historic discrimination.
But now he works with the NRA and makes speeches about guns. That almost certainly would not have happened in the “good old days.”
Says Chris: I'll be on John Stossel's show on Fox Business tonight at 9PM EDT. The topic is “Good New Days” and I'll be on for 4-5 minutes talking about the success minorities, gays, and women have made over the years.
I'll be chatting about the recent Michael Sam controversy, Silicon Valley, and gun culture.”
“Yes, we still have a lot of work to do, but it is always good to stop and take stock of the progress we've made.”
