MIXED MEDIA WATCH NEWS UPDATE:
Carmen shares the latest and greatest from Mixed Media Watch. We discuss Nicolas Cage’s recent remarks about his “exotic” mixed son, Kal-El. We also give our thoughts on a new study that has found that interracial relationships are less likely than “same-race” relationships to lead to marriage.
Jen shares an anecdote about a guy who tried to pick her up and completely switched up his game when he found out that she wasn’t Latina, but rather, Asian.
INTERVIEW WITH PHIL YU
Carmen interviews Phil Yu, who writes an immensely popular blog called Angry Asian Man that is a clearinghouse for all news stories and media depictions related to Asian-Americans. They discuss the model minority myth, the “curse of the Asian male,” why TV shows always have to do one “Chinatown episode,” and the increased activism surrounding media representations of Asian-Americans.
