Impressions of Imprint

I attended the Imprint Culture Lab event in Los Angeles and was particularly struck by discussions about Asian representation in media, Asian influences on pop culture and differences with regard to how to handle Asian stereotyps in media.

    I’d heard about the Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt issue some years before, and it had been used as an example of on-line community organizing. I think the Asian community has been especially comfortable with incorporating aspects of the online community into every day life, and that campaign generated thousands of e-mail signatures to petitions very quickly.

    Certainly there will always be a tension when members of an ethnic group debate the extent to which their ethnicity could be barrier, or whether they should verbalize their feelings about that barrier. Having the debate itself is valuable, however, and race and ethnicity are inherently difficult subjects to address because it is impossible to divorce the speaker from the subject matter, in a sense.
