Note: I'm not claiming to know what it's like to experience life as someone from this heritage, nor am I claiming these are the absolute most influential people of this race. I'm simply doing this as a tribute, and I have the best intentions of doing as such.

The Most Influential Asian/Pacific People in the History of the United States of America (Part 2)

I'm cheating a little bit here-technically, Queen Lili'Uokalani never resided in the USA, but her influence is the main reason why we have Hawaii as a state. LiliʻUIokalani(born Lydia Kamakaaeha), was the queen and last ruling monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. She was the first and only queen to rule the Hawaiian islands, reigning from 1891 until they were seized and stolen by the imperial government of the United States of America.

    I don't care.
    More of this stuff where we have to constantly keep track of the boxes people are sectioned off into... in this land of "inclusiveness" and "diversity"... we just can't stop keeping very, very close attention to everyone's race of birth... something people have ZERO control over. Make sure we keep very close track of what your sex is... your race... and then let's make sure we endlessly mention that and point it out and make sue every situation and evaluated and judged based on what box you are in.

    Let's just keep endlessly separating people based on their race and talking endless about that.

    This kind of mindset is sick... but most don't even recognize it.
    Is this still revelant?

    Alright, so obviously it's not my imagination. The only reason you post these "influencer" mytakes is for an opportunity to post a picture of a fat ass woman looking at her grotesquely giant ass in the mirror to feed your fucked up fetish so you can wank to the pics in your sick, fucked up mind. It has nothing to do with influential anyone, so all you're doing is cheapening the contributions the other people you list have made. Grown the fuck up.

    • I'm just pissed they put a "typical thot" on this list and not YouTubers that have way more influence on young Americans. Hell maybe even that's ridiculous lmfao

    Queen Lili'Uokalani lived 133 years?
    • Lol no, she wasn't THAT old. I guess living to 79 years old in the early 20th Century was equivalent to a modern day 133 year old.

    • Jamie05rhs

      Oh, okay. Cool.
      Well, I guess you just made a typo, then. ;)

    • I just double-checked, and I have Queen Lili'Uokalani's year range correct,
