In self-defeating fashion, Asian America has made it so that it will mostly be our most estranged and embittered exiles who will speak for us. We then complain about invisibility and heap all sorts of expectations on these exiles to suddenly understand us and feel kinship with us. Which brings me back to Yappie, both the show and the real-life yappies i. The story of the stereotype-breaking unicorn Asian American is a tired one at this point.
Harold and Kumar dealt with real problems like being the Asian workhorse in the workplace or feeling intense family pressure to be a doctor. Dev and Brian faced fake problems like wondering whether to go to Italy to learn to make pasta.
We live in a society that shed tears of joy over Boyhood a movie I adore, by the way for its prosaic narrative about ordinary people.
But would even Asian Americans celebrate an Asian Boyhood? I think of all the thoughtful Asian American voices that have resigned themselves to silence because society convinced them they had nothing to say. But what Asian America needs now more than ever is for the hitherto irrelevant to speak up. It is their voice that Asian America needs, not those whose primary qualities are white-fluency and being Asian but not Too Asian.
And I hate this fetishization of the unicorn Asian, the one who cinematically runs out during their MCAT to pursue artisanal herbal jewelry. If we let outsiders select our voices, we will always be second-class because the outsiders will always prioritize their interests first. Being thought of as safe does suck. Andrew in Yappie was right to be upset as he did. So the show can only provide a spark, not answers.
Even strong enthusiasm toward something is a challenge for some, but can transform you life. It did mine, and brought me here. Whether it be real estate, or comics, dentistry, or fitness.

The worst thing you could do is live these next few years passively. So if you already know what your purpose is and what you love, understand that knowing is a gift!
The 2nd thing is love and relationships. How much love dictates our lives. So bear with me, I just wanna share 3 quick thoughts about love. Your journey to find love is going to be challenging.
Never ever feel like another person was what defined you or made you whole. YOU need to make sure you love yourself. Work on yourself, believe in yourself, and yes, treat yourself.
Attraction is, but making a relationship work takes choice. And you must be honest with yourself when it comes to the person you choose to be in a relationship with. This means understanding your emotions. Feelings are what give our lives texture, even sad feelings, so embrace the entire spectrum of emotions and learn from each experience.
Learn what you qualities are important to you, and what angers you, and how to communicate better. And most importantly, learn to forgive… others and yourself. This is an issue in itself that we believe we're tackling head on.
We want to show that APAs are just normal people, and shouldn't be stereotyped in the media and should have proper representation. We don't all do martial arts or have accents. We have stories that most everyone can relate to as human beings.

We really want to show that our work and voice should and can be seen colorblind. The same way African Americans can now be accepted in the mainstream without a second guess, that's what we hope will someday be the case for APAs. The group also does not promote political messages through their works but, rather, raises "many APA issues that we feel would fit our brand and image.
