So I was reading Angry Asian Man blog, which is really hilarious and keeps me up to date on all matters I should be poâ€™d about and proud of as an Asian. One of his angrier diatribes was against this Barbie-cute, blond comedienne named Chelsea Handler, whose schtick on Leno was about Pax, Angelina Jolieâ€™s son, who wonâ€™t know heâ€™s Asian b/c he doesnâ€™t know how to do nails or drive poorly, etc., etc., etc. It sounded mostly stupid to me, but I did go to this girlâ€™s web site, like a dumb ass, and even reserved her book â€œMy Horizontal Life,â€ about one-night stands.
The writing sample sounded promising and I figured I would be in for a nice, entertaining ride about embarrassing booty calls, light summer fare (because Iâ€™ve run out of my current light obsessionâ€”YA romance novels; yes, I am sad). I don’t get offended as often as maybe I should (?) and figured her Asian comments would be a one-time lack of judgment. I put the book on hold at the library (b/c I am a senior citizen, I love the library, and I live in a studio), and waited for it to come in. Much to my dismay, the essays were too dull to really finish and then there was one about an ex boyfriend caught in a mÃ©nage a trois with two Asian ladies and racial commentary ensued. You know, stuff about slanty eyes and calling them the wok nâ€™ roll twins.
People, all I want is to be caught up in a good story. Why do I have to deal with this stupid stuff? I figured her Leno schtick was a one-time racially offensive thing, I didnâ€™t know it was consistent throughout her work. Jees, what a loser. Anyway, I don’t recommend her work!
Even Harry Potter now has some Asian kids in the Hogwarts school!

What’s the link for Angry Asian Man’s blog? Is there an equivalent for Angry Asian Girls? How about Angry Asian Mobs? Grab your pitchfork, girl – we got some ass-whuppin to do.
As an honorary Asian (an honor conferred on me by the HKK, unless I conferred it on myself, not sure), I am shocked and outraged.
sung ji, if you’re bored, check http://www.angryasianman.com/angry.html. it’s good, if a bit myopic. i mean, there’s only so much asian thinking a girl can take
at tony sachs, definitely your outrage means a lot as an honorary asian. i’m going to start commenting on your column. i have to sneak it in. it’s like the 1980s kgb here. hee hee. i owe you a bollywood mix. i dunno if you’ll like it, but try it nonetheless!
