Please Try to Forgive Rush Limbaugh

Asian-American lawmakers demand Limbaugh apology
Sen. Leland Yee


Assemblywoman Grace Meng

Rep. Judy Chu


SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Rush Limbaugh's imitation of the Chinese language during a recent speech made by Chinese President Hu Jintao has stirred a backlash among Asian-American lawmakers in California and nationally. California state Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, is leading a fight in demanding an apology from the radio talk show host for what he and others view as racist and derogatory remarks against the Chinese people. In recent days, the state lawmaker has rallied civil rights groups in a boycott of companies like Pro Flowers, Sleep Train and Domino's Pizza that advertise on Limbaugh's national talk radio show.
