It’s the second half of our season finale! In this episode we talk about affirmative action, and why Asian Americans who are against affirmative action are being duped into a false narrative. We also discuss Jay Caspian Kang’s recent article in the NY Times about the hazing death of Michael Deng and whether, as Kang suggests, Asian American is “a meaningless term.” Finally, we wrap up with closing thoughts for the season. Lydia shares her favorite drinks and Liz confesses her affinity for curmudgeonly old Asian men.
Thank you everyone for an AMAZING Season One! :)
