John Cho, in a great, long-read 2009 interview on the UCLA Asia Institute’s Asia Pacific Arts website. Thanks to radiophile for the link.
This quote strikes me as particularly relevant in the aftermath of the STID press tour and John’s comments. He’s always thinking about the portrayal of race in media and culture because it hits home. And he’s a total BAMF for consistently pointing out when people get it wrong.
“We didn’t have any paints in the house when I was younger, but I would do collage. I would collect advertisements, rip them up, and then paste them together. That was the beginning of it. After that, I did photography, and then painting and sculpting. I began to realise how important it is to express yourself, and not be afraid of making mistakes – as mistakes often make something special and unique.” — Lucy Liu
I like to think that if John and Joan met, he’d check her out and expect her to be flattered, and she wouldn’t take any of his shit.
@ChuckWendig: Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn’t qualify as “hate speech.”

How does this bullshit not have more notes?
I am so glad I don’t use FB anymore!

Art school, as I’m sure most of you know, is hella expansive and I really need the extra cash for laundry, art supplies, food, etc!
