Beau Sia's APIA Vote speech

poet beau sia performs a "fireside chat" version of the speech that he delivered at last months APIA vote town hall that all three presidential candidates flaked on. what i like about this piece is that it was very appropriate for the audience at the townhall. beau knew that crowd would range from japanese american senior citizens to young southeast asian high schoolers. i think knowing your audience is one of the most important parts of being an effective spitter. beau can come a lot harder and clever if he wants. here's his response to rosie o'donnell's dumb ass ching chong comment on the view. his "plus size lesbians" line is classic. -tadillac
