They broke into cheers every time he referred to numbers or statistics。 They chanted “PowerPoint! PowerPoint!” when he renewed a pledge to use the program to deliver the State of the Union。


And when the 2,500 rain-soaked supporters of Andrew Yang realized he was about to drop his biggest applause line, they screamed the words to help him finish his New York rally with a bang。

当2500名被雨淋透的杨安泽(Andrew Yang)的支持者意识到,他就要说出他最吸引掌声的那句话时,他们一起大声将那句话喊出,帮他在热烈的掌声中结束他在纽约的集会。

“The opposite of Donald Trump,” Mr。 Yang yelled, pausing to let his fans join in, “is an Asian man who likes math!”

“与唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)正相反的,”杨安泽喊道,他停下来,等着粉丝们的加入,“是一个喜欢数学的亚裔男子。”

Though the scene at Washington Square Park last week might have seemed unusual to the uninitiated, it was emblematic of Mr。 Yang’s long-shot campaign for the Democratic nomination for president。 As the 44-year-old former tech executive has traveled across the country, running what he has called the “nerdiest presidential campaign in history,” he has unabashedly embraced his Taiwanese American background, as well as some of the stereotypes commonly associated with Asian-Americans。


“It’s heartwarming when people are excited to see me because they feel like I represent their community,” Mr。 Yang said earlier this month in an interview at a bakery in Concord, N.H。 “And I will admit that there are many Asian-Americans who are looking at me and my candidacy and want to make sure I reflect positively on the community, so I’m very aware。”


For the first time, there are three Asian-American and Pacific Islanders seeking a major party’s nomination for president: Mr。 Yang, Senator Kamala Harris of California and Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii。 As groundbreaking as that is, Mr。 Yang in particular has embraced the largely untested strategy of using his Asian ethnicity and identity to appeal to voters nationwide。

这是首次出现三位亚裔美国人和太平洋岛民寻求一个主要政党的总统候选人提名:杨安泽、加利福尼亚州参议员卡玛拉·哈里斯(Kamala Harris),以及夏威夷州众议员图尔西·加巴德(Tulsi Gabbard)。虽然这已经具有开创性,但杨安泽尤为特别,他欣然接受了一个基本上未经过检验的策略,那就是用自己的亚裔族群认同来引起全国选民注意。

Mr。 Yang said he was proud of his background and that he hoped his blunt acknowledgment of his race — and his bold political ideas — would help him stand out, particularly in the early stages of a primary contest where the nearly two dozen Democratic hopefuls can blur together for many voters。


“When people hear from me, they say, ‘You don’t sound like any other politician,’” he said。 “In a very crowded field, the person who sounds different is going to keep getting stronger and stronger。”


More than a year after he kicked off his bid for the presidency from a position of almost total obscurity, Mr。 Yang’s approach to campaigning and pledge to provide a universal basic income to every American have netted him more than 100,000 donors and helped him qualify for the first Democratic debate。 Though he remains something of a fringe candidate, he routinely draws thousands of people to his big-city rallies, and he has garnered support from a range of voters, including parts of the Democratic-leaning Asian-American community。


Scholars and community leaders who study Asian-American history say Mr。 Yang’s emergence onto the national political scene is no accident。 After decades of immigrant exclusion, second-generation Asian-Americans have come of age and grown up steeped in American politics。 The 2018 midterms saw a record number of Asian-Americans run for Congress at a time when the racial group continues to expand at a faster rate than any other in the United States。


“This is absolutely a moment of importance,” John C。 Yang, the president of the national arm of the nonprofit advocacy organization Asian Americans Advancing Justice, said of the three presidential candidates。 “It says something about how far we have come。”

“这绝对是一个重要的时刻,”非营利的倡导组织亚裔美国人正义促进会(Asian Americans Advancing Justice)的全国机构主管约翰·C·杨(John C。 Yang)在谈到这三位总统候选人时说。“这说明了我们已经取得的进步。”

More than four decades later, the candidates in the 2020 field have addressed their background in varying ways。


Ms。 Harris, whose mother was Tamil Indian and whose father is Jamaican, attended Howard University, one of the most prominent historically black schools, and was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the oldest black sorority。 She has bristled at the suggestion that she has downplayed her Indian heritage, pointing to her memoir, in which she writes about the influence her mother and grandparents had on her。 But Ms。 Harris has also sometimes deflected questions about her identity, choosing to describe herself simply as “a proud American。”
