Addicted to Race 83: The New Yellow Peril

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

addicted to raceA brand-new episode (No. 83) of Addicted to Race is out! Addicted to Race is New Demographic’s weekly podcast about America’s obsession with race.

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.
