Why Asian Americans should care about Black Lives Matter

(06/11/20 4:00am)

In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and other Black victims at the hands of the police and racist perpetrators, NYU’s Lambda Phi Epsilon, the Asian-interest community, has shown complete disdain for the Black community through its racist GroupMe messages that leaked to Twitter. At the same time, some of my upper-middle class Asian neighbors in my town on Long Island, N.Y., have expressed anti-Black sentiment as they feared the local luxury boutiques and their own businesses would get looted. Their concerns about the repairable property damage and financial losses had morphed into racist hate speech and a complete disregard of the lost and irreplaceable Black lives that prompted these protests and riots. 

'Riverdale' presents adolescent escapism in second season

(10/18/17 4:00am)

As a child, I devoured “Archie” comics, intrigued by the perpetual chase for Archie by Betty and Veronica, his two best friends, not realizing the social implications of such relationships. Today, with the start of the second season of “Riverdale,” the show maintains the same classic, comic book feel of its source material, while improving upon its view of women, with the focus on Betty and Veronica’s strong bond and intelligent and defiant qualities. Targeted toward teens, “Riverdale” includes loud pop music, sultry romance and extreme emotions, and, of course, Archie’s sexual appeal in its first episode of the second season.
