    I’ve always been disgusted by hosts like hannity, Tucker Carlson, and O’Reilly. Now though I’m just as horrified by CNN hosts like Chris Hayes which seem just as willing to place their outrage above facts.

    I grew up in rural Louisiana and I didn’t know Asians or Jews were ‘real’ until I went to college. (Also I was Mormon, which I feel further confused my misconceptions.) It’s like I thought they were both extinct groups because I’d really never seen one. (Which I’d bet is still a very real experience for many midwesterners and southerners, regardless of age.)
    I would say ‘visibility’ rather than ‘representation’ would be the most effective way to become more a part of the general American social consciousness. Platforming can get in the way of true understanding/’relation’ship between social groups.

    Still no Cuomo coverage? Astounding. Yet also somehow not that surprising.

    Really glad you’re covering this. How about doing a similar treatment with Native American guests? No shortage of topics there.

    I just look like it as Karma, what comes around goes around, you reap what you sow because b4 the racism against the Chinese the Chinese was racist against the African in China.
    When the onset of the pandemic came out the chinese abused and exiled many of the Africans and ppl of African descendants.

    The bit about Crazy Rich Asians and the guy removing his shirt, while it’s great that more Asian led movies are coming out now I think there is the danger that it becomes a fad which mean in a few years things might go backwards, when I was in university myself and a lot of people I know in my age group are fans of anime and Japanese culture which is fine but I’ve met people who can take that love too far and fetishize people from Asia, my ex admitted to having an Asian fetish as a kid that he grew out of and a young bloke I lived with in halls would only date girls who were from Asia it was kind of a gross form of reverse racism no surprise after a few drinks he would turn into a regular racist and shout racial slurs at black people (the ‘n’ word) and French people (‘frogs’)
