The term “internalized racism” gets thrown around a lot in Asian American online discussions, but what does it really mean? While the phenomenon of internalized racism is undoubtedly real and has been historically apparent across all racial (usually non-white) groups, would online discussions be more productive if we were more articulate and specific in what we are saying when we use this term? Chris and Jess welcome two first-time guests, Diana (a stand-up comedian) and Ken (an engineer), in talking through this topic.
