"Data is really important. Many times we have different groups in this state and this country that claim different disparities and unless we have the data, it's very difficult to identify it," said Assemblyman Ramos, discussing his support for legislation to require the compilation of data for more ethnic groups to ensure fairness and equality for those communities. "What really surprises me is the idea and the mentality that if we are doing other groups a disservice, then we should do a disservice to the Asian community as well. If we're not collecting this data on any other group and we're doing wrong by them, we should do that to the Asian community. I certainly welcome that all ethnic groups be studied to really identify where those disparities are."
