ATR 83 – The New Yellow Peril – 9/25/2007 – Submit an Audio Comment: 917-720-6348

Carmen and Jeff discuss the new yellow peril. Between the lead paint toy scare, the tainted pet food scare, and the general rise of China’s economic and military might, all the anti-Chinese sentiments we’ve been hearing lately sound awfully similar to the anti-Chinese sentiments at the turn of the century.

This episode features the song “Give Me Love” by Grayskul, courtesy of Spectre Entertainment.

Carmen is joined by Jeff Yang in this episode. Yang is the Asian Pop columnist for SFGate, the website of the San Francisco Chronicle, and founded and published the pioneering Asian American periodical aMagazine for over a dozen years. He has written for a wide range of publications, and authored three books—”Eastern Standard Time” (Houghton Mifflin); “I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action” (Ballantine, the action icon’s official autobiography); and “Once Upon a Time in China” (Atria/Pocket Books). His fourth book, a graphic novel anthology of Asian American superhero tales titled “Secret Identities,” is due out from The New Press in Fall 2008.

ATR 82- Future of the Multiracial Movement – 9/19/2007 – Submit an Audio Comment: 917-720-6348

Carmen, Jen and Anthony discuss the future of the multiracial movement. In the late 80s and 90s, quite a few organizations sprang up to serve people of mixed heritage. In 2000 they enjoyed a significant victory when the Census finally allowed people to check two or more races. But since then, the multiracial movement seems to have floundered. Prominent community leaders have withdrawn from the scene, and one of the oldest organizations, Hapa Issues Forum, closes its doors this month after 15 years of activism. So what’s going on here? What’s the future of movement? Or was it even a movement to begin with?

This episode features the song “Home Alone” by Lux featuring Freeway, courtesy of Spectre Entertainment.

Carmen is joined by Anthony Yuen and Jen Chau in this episode.

Anthony Yuen is a former executive director of Hapa Issues Forum who first became involved with the organization in 1996 as a member of the UC Berkeley chapter. A graduate of UCLA’s Asian American Studies M.A. program, he produced as his thesis a video documentary entitled From Their Own Voice, which examines multiracial Asian American arts, academics, and activism from 1977-1997. He recently received his M.Ed. in Counseling and Student Affairs from UCLA and currently works as a study abroad advisor for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Jen Chau is the Founder and Executive Director of Swirl, Inc., a national anti-racist, grassroots organization that serves the mixed heritage community. In addition, she is the Director of People Services at New Leaders for New Schools, a national non-profit education reform organization. She shares her thoughts on identity, education, and leadership at her blog, The Time is Always Right.
