Support Your Asian Community!!!


How to support the Asian community right now!



I found a couple of ways to help.
There's a lot of words here but bare with me it'll be worth the read.

The first way, you may have seen in my blog, is through spreading the word about the new Hafu documentary. I learned about this through Watermelon Sushi  


Hafu is a documentary film on the identities and experiences of mixed-race Japanese living in Japan today.


Visit their site http://www.halfufilm.com for more information.

The second way is by voting for Ellie of AAtheory and Seoulbeats.


"My dream in this little old life is to have my own talk show. The possibility of that ever coming true seemed way too far-fetched even for my imagination. Then this woman, I’m not to sure if you’ve ever heard of her, but she goes by the name of Oprah, decided to give someone the chance to have their own talk show. So here I am auditioning and asking for you all to vote for me. If you believe in my concept and in me, please vote and give me the chance to represent minorities and to make a difference."



Ellie: Founder of AAtheory.com & Writer 
"I’m short, loud, & I have huge feet. I’m known to talk way too much and way too fast. I started this site because I believe Asian Americans are well on their way to rock the American entertainment industry and I strongly support anybody who is willing to step out and break the barriers. I do hope you all enjoy and love this site as much as I have grown to love and appreciate it."
