Andrew Yang wants to be your president and give you a free $1000 every month. Why every American hasn’t leapt up and spread his name around by now is partly because Yang has been running his campaign like a model minority. AKA, speak softly, hope to get noticed. I like Yang, and a lot of it started out solely because he is Asian, but after really hearing him out, I mostly like him now because...

Sometime last year, I stared at a wall for thirty minutes. I was really sad and wanted to die, except I didn’t really want to, just that it felt like I was falling from a cliff and I was holding on for dear life against an inevitable fall. I saw a therapist and she told me I had depression. I told her she was wrong. I don’t get depression. I’m a happy person, a strong...

As someone who likes consistency and realness, I hate holidays. This idea that we’re supposed to stop and dedicate certain days to remind ourselves of common ideas is ridiculous. We should be kind to our moms year-round, every now and then treat our spouses to something nice and make resolutions in June. There’s even a holiday to remind us we should be thankful when, really, the other 363 days, we should be thankful too. Holidays...

Imagine one day that you show up to work and you expect everything to be normal. Why wouldn’t you? You work hard, you’re honest, you give nobody a reason to club you to death with a hammer. The problem is, someone out there doesn’t like you. They don’t like you for the color of your skin. They don’t like you because they perceive you a threat to your own community. Why? Because the media painted...

I have an average penis. It’s not big, it’s not small. It’s like a Honda Civic: common, very functional with good mileage. Of all the interesting parts of my body, my penis should not be anything of interest to anyone I don’t fuck, because well, it’s what you’ll find in most men. But throughout my life, as an Asian man, I’ve been defined by it. I’m better at fucking than I am at math, but...

Well, it’s about damn time we got ourselves an Asian MCU movie. Thank you, Black Panther. Thank you, Crazy Rich Asians. Here’s your love child. Marvel announced today that they’re going to fast-track a movie about Asian character Shang-Chi, someone 99% of us have never heard of, but whose Wikipedia page have probably gotten more views today than it’s ever had prior to the news. Its plans are to do something similar to Black Panther,...

I’m going to contribute another article as to why Dolce & Gabbana’s “The Great Show” was evil, but I don’t want to repeat the obvious reasons. By now, we all know the big three: 1.) It shows Chinese people as ill-cultured buffoons 2.) There’s a not-so-subtle tiny dick joke and 3.) The Chinese narrator seems to intentionally mispronounce the label in a mocking accent. Add Gabbana’s unhinged racist Instagram rants and even the least-woke Western-society...

The always underrated movie, Atonement, drove home a point that had, over time, fallen into deaf ears. In the movie, a thirteen-year-old girl named Briony witnessed the lover of her older sister doing what Briony perceived to be offensive things. Because she was offended and believed she was righteous, Briony went on a mission to go overboard and ruin the lover and, in effect, the life of her older sister. They never recovered. As an...

There’s a primary difference between the SNL hosting choice of Awkwafina vs. Lucy Liu from 18 years back. Lucy was a pioneer, an old guard. An old hated guard. She was what White America thought we wanted: a pretty, sex-symbol Asian woman famous in an era of other pretty sex-symbol Asian women. The era had goofy, comedic Asian men (Dr. Ken Jeong, a revitalized Rush Hour Jackie Chan), heavy doses of martial arts and white...

Most people I knew in my life were Hong Kong and Taiwanese people. To anyone knowledgeable about Chinese politics, this means that I was taught that Mainland Chinese people were classless and embraced Communism. “You shouldn’t trust Mainland Chinese people,” advised an uncle. “They’ll always want something. They’re not Chinese.” I had believed advice like this like I breathed air. I laughed at Mainland Chinese people. I repeated my uncle’s mantra to the choir of...
