Jindal may not break any popular vote records next year, but hands down, he has won the aware for the single worst series of campaign announcement videos in the history of American politics.
No, I don't have anything really more enlightening here. Bobby Jindal, everyone's favourite hot mess of a presumptive presidential candidate, just announced his bid for the White House with this "I...

To attack a church is to commit violence not just on the body, but also on the soul.
I can't take it any more. Ferguson. Brown. Long Island. Garner. New York. Diallo. Cleveland. Rice. Brooklyn. Gurney. St. Louis. Powell. Los Angeles. Ford. Beavercreek. Crawford. Bastrop. Smith. D.C...

Race is not just physical appearance. Race is not just cultural identification or upbringing. Race is an inherited legacy of political power, pride, privilege and pain that we carry with us from birth. It is a legacy that Rachel Dolezal cannot manufacture at her own convenience, no matter how she weaves her hair.
If you spend any time thinking about race or identity politics, you have by now heard of Rachel Dolezal, the (former) president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP who for several years passed as a...

Regardless of how romantic unmoderated spaces devoted to unregulated speech sound, in reality we see too often that users infiltrate and abuse such spaces to bully those already marginalized from the mainstream.
Reddit has long been a safe haven for users who yearn for the good old days when the internet was basically the Wild West. Whether myth or reality, many redditors believe that Reddit remains one of...

When we tell our kids that they must be “perfect”, we don’t give them the space to just be human.
Over the weekend, 16-year-old Mira Hu went missing in San Marino, California. Hu -- a student at San Marino High School -- had been dropped off at nearby Arcadia High School on Saturday to take the...

I ask us this year to remember not just the name of Vincent Chin, but the spirit of his story: that all of our lives are worth more than $3,000, or some take-out Chinese food, or a bag of Skittles. This year, I ask us to not just etch Vincent Chin’s name on our hearts, but also the names of all victims of racial hatred. I ask us to remember that no person deserves to die of a hate crime. I ask us to not just redouble our cries for justice for Vincent Chin’s family, but to renew our commitment to ending all racial violence in this country that victimizes all communities of colour.
33 years ago today, Vincent Chin died at the age of 27. Chin had been in a coma for four days after being attacked by Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz. The two Chrysler factory workers reportedly said...

Police are still searching for Shaw. Until he is found, my Asian American sisters, please continue to remain vigilant and protect yourselves. This person is still on the loose, and we now have pretty good evidence to suggest that this is a disturbing tale of Asiaphilic sexual harassment turned (even more) racist, sexist, and violent.
The suspect in a series of physical assaults targeting Asian American women in New York City was identified late yesterday by police as 25-year-old Tyrelle D. Shaw, after concerned friends and fami...

A man appears to be wandering Manhattan on some sort of bizarre rampage seeking out East Asian American female victims.
Police are conducting a city-wide hunt in New York City for a man who has reportedly assaulted four Asian American women in separate attacks. The man, whose likeness has been captured in surveillan...

Kristina Wong: "Initially, I expected that The Wong Street Journal would be a show about economic theory and larger conceptual ideas around poverty.  I thought it would be an excuse to learn about the stock market, currency and other global systems.  I realized pretty quickly that I couldn’t just use the Uganda experience to talk about global poverty without acknowledging the fundamental inequities of race, class and infrastructure that framed every interaction I had there.  So as a result, the show is both a love letter to the people I met and the experience I had, and it’s also about me learning to work through — rather than around — my own anxieties of privilege and how I benefit from a colonial legacy.

Also, the show is funny."
Kristina Wong has dedicated her life to holding up a mirror to Asian America's politics, pride and foibles through her work as our community's foremost contemporary performance artist. Wong has inf...

When we describe college admissions as a “zero-sum game” we indicate that we fundamentally misunderstand this process. We also ignore the compelling interest of schools to generate on-campus diversity, and we further argue that diversity has no value to all enrolled students.

To say that college admissions is a “zero-sum game” is to say that student diversity (racial or otherwise) simply doesn’t matter. College admissions is not a zero-sum game precisely because it does: student diversity benefits all students.
The affirmative action debate threatens to become the single defining issue of the Asian American electorate in the coming cycle, with Asian Americans engaging in heated discussion for or against r...

There are many multiracial people who may not look multiracial. A mixed race White, Asian, and Native Hawaiian person may indeed look White, but that does not mean that they are not mixed race. To cast a monoracial White person in the role of a mixed race White-passing character is to lend credence to the disturbing idea that the mixed race individual is racially and politically indistinguishable from Whiteness, and that because their non-White heritage is not visible, it is not critically important.
Earlier last week, Cameron Crowe's Aloha -- which opened on Friday to pitiful box office returns -- became embroiled in controversy as attention focused on the casting of Emma Stone in the role of ...
