Ethnic Musings

The point of this site is to host my thoughts about ethnic issues. The present gaffes or outright stereotyping of basketball player Jeremy Lin provides amply evidence for the need to critique present day media use of language and imagery. I hope this site will allow for distillation of many ideas and hypotheses for a better understanding of how media ethnicity is developed and maintained as a hegemonic imperial definer.

  1. A noble effort! I look forward to reading future posts. Hollywood’s coding of “good guys” and “bad guys” (and “smart guys” and “dumb guys”) using ethnic stereotypes is pernicious, one reason I try to catch films from outside the Hollywood orbit, too, if only for my own mental health.
