TEDxUofW - Simon Tam: A New Slant on Racism
My first TEDx talk. I was a bit shaken and sleep deprived but I hope you’ll enjoy the talk. Next one will be better ;)
I wanted to focus on the stupidity and systemic racism that’s present in our government, as evidenced by the United States Trademark Office trying to control identity. There’s no doubt that when you deny people the right to take control of their own identity, you treat them as second class citizens.
If Asians Said The Stuff White People Say
Breaking Asian American Male Stereotypes…
This was really cool to see. Sometimes, I forget how our art can impact people in different ways - but to know that we helped other people find their voice (literally) and to empower them to break beyond the stereotypes placed on Asian American males…that’s pretty cool.
It’s a good reminder of why I continue climbing back onto a stinky tour bus time after time, to melt faces around the world.
That time where we had a chat with George Takei and he gave some incredible advice about being an Asian American in the entertainment industry.
Something cool happened today. Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco premiered our new music video.
