Hey y’all. Happy Wednesday. I’m sick today so I hate everybody. Like, every time I cough, I actually think, I HATE EVERYBODY. My immune system right now is made up of 50% white blood cells, 50% fuck you rage. Grrrrr.

But I love you people through sickness and in health. And I thank you for coming back to listen to me blah blah blah again on the awesome and amazing Andrew Ti’s Yo, Is This Racist? podcast.

Today we talk about Black Metal–a subject you will soon learn I know tons about–and what to do about friends who like racist stuff.

PS Do you think when the caller said he had “a friend,” he was really talking about himself? Hmmm.

Oh, and here’s a New Yorker piece on Black Metal. No mention of the racism component though.

Yo, Is This Racist? Podcast f/t DISGRASIAN Day 2: Workplace Segregation + A Little History Lesson

April 23rd, 2013 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

7th grade was the year parents started dropping us kids off at the mall for hours at a time with some money and a “don’t get kidnapped” warning because they needed us to be loud, annoying, and hormonal somewhere out of the house. I remember being at the movies one time with my girl posse, and I was running it before the start of the movie, and in a fit of swagger I exclaimed, “I need a microphoooone!!!!!

To which the older lady sitting behind me said–and by older, I mean from a 12 year-old’s perspective, so, like, 20 or so– “No, you don’t.”

Which shut me up right quick. Because I was taught to respect my elders.

But now I am an elder and I have the mic, bishes!!! All week long, courtesy of my pal Andrew Ti, of Yo, Is This Racist? and Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? fame.

Today Andrew and I talk on his podcast about workplace segregation, with a little detour back through the 19th century. Have a listen!

YO.

This week, I’m joining the insanely smart/cute/funny/multi-talented/marriageable Andrew Ti of Yo, Is This Racist? and Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? on his Yo, Is This Racist? podcast!

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. WTF

Today’s topic? Natural hair. Inappropriate touching of strangers. Bad Asian drivers.

Oh, and…things that are racist.

Thanks for listening, I’ll be here all week long. Try the veal!

Phil and Me: We were both doing our Angry Faces but somehow I ended up giving Duck Lips instead

Angry Asian Man and I sat down recently for a blogger-to-blogger pow-wow on his newly-launched podcast, Sound and Fury. In this ep, we talk about how DISGRASIAN came into being and where it’s going, what’s cool and what sucks about blogging about our people, and how judge-y Asians are in general. We even revisit a beef Diana and I once had with an Asian American celebrity. Which one, you ask? And about what? Find out here.

One More Reason DISGRASIAN Needs To Put A Hit On Lynn Chen

May 3rd, 2010 | 8 comments | Posted by Diana

Scoundrel!

We’ve got a long history of knowing stalking Lynn Chen, an actress whose excessive beauty makes us want to rip our eyeballs out (Seriously, who in this world has got a cuter frown/smile? If such a person exists we need to take them down, too).

It looks like we shouldn’t only be threatened by her looks. She’s moving in on all fronts. Did y’all realize she blogs, too? Her blog with longtime friend and fellow actress Christy Meyers (also f’ing cute) is called The Actor’s Diet, and in it both ladies charmingly detail the way they eat (And no, they don’t write “just barf” in every post). Oh REALLY, Lynn? You think just ANYone can start a blog with their good friend that they eat/drink/gossip with all the time, just because, filling the blogoverse with sassy girlfriend chatter? HUH? Okay yeah, you can. Anybody can, really. So what?

NOW SHE’S MOVING IN OUR BOYFRIEND.
