What are the real-world impacts of racism on Asian-Americans, ranging from mental health to romantic relationships? Rosalind S. Chou is co-author of The Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism.

ATR 102 – Blagojevich and Obama

Tami Winfrey Harris and Carmen Van Kerckhove discuss Obama’s connection (or lack thereof?) to the Rod Blagojevich scandal. Unfortunately the rest of this episode’s recording got lost and we didn’t have time to re-do it, so this is a super-short episode. Apologies to our listeners. :(
