DJ Chuang posted today about who mainstream media outlets could contact to be a voice for the Asian American community.
I am glad to hear that our voices might be included in mainstream media discussions, rather than being an afterthought, especially with all of the negative portrayals of Asian Americans in the media these days (as wimpy nerds, well-intentioned but hapless, or just basically non-existent).
However, given the incredible diversity of Asian American communities it would be hard to imagine someone who could speak for all of us. Hopefully, as spokespeople for Asian Americans begin to be raised up, we can address some of these issues.
Actually, I think DJ would be a great candidate himself!
