Asian Girl Problem #102: I Fux WIth Eddie Huang

White people lunch! The Asian fascination with hip hop! Chubby childhoods! I feel the same way about this upcoming show as I did for the memoir it’s based on–yes it might water down serious issues and reinforce stereotypes. It might only portray inflammatory and individual views that make other Asians feel misrepresented and exploited. If it was an easy topic, it wouldn’t be interesting. The point is, an Asian is getting their immigrant story out there on broadcast TV.

The cup overfloweth–here’s another new web series on Asian-Canadian teens bent on becoming millionaires, offering “a pan-Asian cast that resists stereotypes of Asians.”
