by Five Alive

Ray travels to NYC and hangs out with Teen in Queens, NY. They got themselves a Zoom recorder and some proper microphones, and had a wide-ranging discussion about the role Asian Americans can play in a racist society. Do we petition our own grievances? Or is there a larger role to play?

Speaking of roles to play, the discussion orbits Simu Liu’s casting as the newest Marvel superhero, and whether that’s as much of a win as the media rep crowd thinks it is.
